    Somewhat belated NGD -- had it about a week. This one defies my gear page handle but somehow qualifies as a plaintop at Dave's Guitar Shop, so I'm covered. 2013 R0 Gloss with version 2 neck, 8 lbs, 10 oz, washed cherry. Neck is a comfortable rounded .823-.932, which is pretty much Gibson's 30/60 size. 60's with a tad more chunk. Plays great, sounds great, honky and fat, loud acoustically and well balanced. I like the custombuckers quite a bit more than burstbuckers.

    These are basic iPad pics that fail to convey how pretty this guitar really is. I'm working on some better pics with a real camera. For washed cherry, it's not very red at all in natural light. More like a sunrise tea, not the rogue digital red. Thanks for checking it out ...

    I'm not typically one for bursts or flame tops, but I would rock that in a heartbeat! She's purrrdy!

    Nice. That's just about the right amount of flame (for me). Some of these get really crazy. So much that I don't want to pick them up and play them. This one is subtle, yet stunning.

    Congrats. :)
