NGD Pelham SG special

Post by StrummersOfThunder »

Well, it had to happen sooner or later.
Its not offset
Its not fender
It doesnt even have a vibrato/trem??!

I bought this a while back, but only just received it today. Actually arrived by bus with a disheveled and car sick mule (Thanks Rob)

2019 SG special Pelham Blue
In very nice shape. Took a set up very well today, small truss adjustment, frets cleaned, washers to combat wrap around bridge tilt,.
There is some linear checking starting in the nitro that im pleased to see :)
The guitar is light and resonant, it plays very very well. I often forget how pleasant flatter radius necks feel in comparison to the vintage fenders that im used t.
Sound wise its all there. I like these p90s. Bitey but full. Sounds great thru the supro 1695t

The finish is intersting. takes on all sorts of characteristics in different lights.

Hot dang!

You won't need to change those pickups. Gibson production P90's are excellent.

Excellent choice.
