NGD: Novo Miris

Post by Conway »

Novo Guitars is the new company run by Dennis Fano. The Miris is from their Custom series, ie. spec'ed by the customer from numerous options for just about everything. I actually bought this one off Reverb from someone doing a quick flick, so I paid a fair wack to beat the 12 month waitlist. But it was totally worth it! Amazing guitar. I also have a Select series Serus that I ordered a while back currently in transit from the US.

Spec's on this one: semi-hollow body from tempered (aka torrefied) pine, Ice Blue Metallic thin nitro finish, light distress, neck is tempered maple with ebony fretboard, jumbo stainless steel frets, block inlays, medium C neck (.83" at 1st fret, .92" at 12th fret), Fralin hum-cancelling P90 pickups, Mastery bridge, Mastery JM style tremolo, weight 6.7 lbs.

Edit: Fretboard radius 9.5".

Beaut. Would prefer a 12" or compound but 9.5 is good too.

Gratz on the NGD.

I reckon the hum-cancelling P90s are just about perfect! Volume knob at 7 for clean, 10 for rip your head off.

You'll have to get up at 3am on the first Monday of the month to see if you can get in an order for one of the Select series. Only 2-3 months wait on those.
