Probably due to Ed's workshop upgrades. I think mine will likely be finished soon, at which point there will emphatically be a NGD

Yep, we haven't shipped anything in a while, though the paint booth is full.

Also bear in mind that most people don't do NGD posts. Lots of folks buy them through our dealers, and aren't even aware of this forums existence, much like myself until only a few years ago.

I am happy to say that the largest of the upgrades are mostly done and dusted. The new Laguna rocks!

Anyone interested can check out our FB page to see what we've been up to...

Ed, obviously you get a lot of love on the forum here. How has the response from the dealers been? Any pressure to increase output and expand?

We have very good natured and understanding dealers, who know where we're at and are very supportive. They all like our guitars very much, and they sell well for them. At this point I'd say most of them wish they could get more, faster, but as I said, they know where we're at.

That being said, we are taking steps to improve efficiency in order to increase our output. Next big tool is gonna be a CNC!

Patiently waiting for a NGD. Ed can only do so much in a day. The new setup will be much better for them.

A full paint booth but no pics of its inhabitants?

Which is really 119, but the guy who had 121 really wanted the specific number 119, so we're doing 121, 120, then 119, cause it goes like that sometimes...
