Awesome. Love the super 400 inlays.

Hard to get one of these south of 10k NZD nowadays.

I bet the neck is more chunky than the SG2000?

Time is an interesting thing. I remember when those were released. The hype was loud and the price astronomical. They sank like a rock.

But all these years later, hopefully at a more reasonable price, they become an interesting Lester variant.

Very cool! Happy NGD :D

And if you're comparing its weight to an SG2000, of course it's light. :rofl:
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

Yeah prices on reverb are super high now, got this for much less, not really a collector piece due to non original parts and some cosmetic damage, so was a little north in price of a brand new lp standard.
I remember first seeing them mid 00's where they were around 3k but that was a bit rich for me at the time, all the extra bullshit is cool to make it a bit diff than a normal custom, and I've never been into the classic yellow burst colours, so this really hits the spot on the shit I like in a Gibson.

Neck has a good girth, but not over the top chunky. Think the sg may actually be a bit more, but haven't done a direct compare
