    After seeing that incredible guitar, I was going to write that I don't know you but I hate you. But then I saw it was Mojocaster who I like and appreciate. Mojo's web page and videos are awesome and shared with a true generous spirit. Enjoy those axes and I'll be checking out the new video.

    Hey Mojo, Nice DTM!

    I have a G4 Tradition and build quality is first rate and the tone is stellar. Great guitars buddy! Play it proud! Thanks for sharing. Got any vids of her up yet?

    Thanks for the kind words. I agree with you, the build quality is outstanding. I have a video uploading now.

    I don't know how I feel about the pickups yet. They're wonderful, but I really have to change the way I play to make them sound the way I want them to sound. I may in time replace the Manlius pickups with a set of Lollars or Fralins. Time will tell :)

    BTW, feel free to post pics of that G4!!!

    Mojo, are those WCR Darkbursts in the guitar? I liked the Darkbursts in my VDC. I didn't care for the Texas/BBQs in my old VSC, output was too strong and were great for hard rock. Just too much for me :)

    I hope you get lots of enjoyment out of your guitar. They are just awesome :AOK

    Here's my G4. It has a koa top.

    Here's a vintage singlecut I regret selling last year :( I actually thought it was too fancy at the time..lol Had a flamed maple neck with the most beautiful figured swirly Brazilian board.

    And my old VDC that I couldn't bond with the V carve in the neck on this one.

    Wow, you've had some superb DTMs! That koa top is stunning.

    The pickups are Manlius, and they are a little too hot for me. I will keep them in for now, but if I don't get used to them I will change them for something more vintage sounding.

    Gorgeous guitar Mojo!

    Big congrats!

    McNaught's have the most stellar wood and the best bookmatching I have ever seen. Of course that means nothing if it doesn't play and sound good. As a fellow Mcnaught owner, I'm sure it plays and sounds top notch and as good as it looks.

    Their paint work is 2nd to none as well.

    Enjoy that bro!!!

    Great guitars everyone! I'm a Mcnaught junkie myself, so I'm a bit biased.:)
