Default Experience with a Northwood Les Paul?

Hello AGF Crew,

I love my Northwood acoustic. It's an amazing guitar that punches two, three and four times above its price point. I've never seen, let alone played a Northwood electric. I'm wondering if anyone here has and how your experience with a Northwood electric compares with mine (and many AGF vets) experience with Northwood acoustics?

Thanks,
Jake

Hey Jake, I'm not familiar with Northwood so I looked them up. Is this them? Out of Canada?

Yes. There's a bunch of YouTube videos on them that Shoreline Music did a while back. I've owned a Cocobolo 000 and now play a Brazilian 00. I've been to Dream Guitars (NC) Acoustic Music Works (Pittsburgh), Rudy's (NYC) and other shops to try to find guitars that outclassed them, and its rare, even in shops like that.

No idea. I've also never seen one either, but am a big fan of lots of Western Canadian builders. Hard to imagine Northwood not getting the neck joint right.

If you enjoy 25.5 necks, Larrivee RS les paulish objects are wonderful and a real bargain on the used markets.
