NGD Stage Deluxe Rosewood

Recommended Posts

I stopped in at my local guitar store, E.M. Shorts, a few weeks back and fell head over heels for this guitar. I had to have it so after parting with some other pieces and praying no one else would buy it I pulled the trigger today. Later tonight I'll change strings and give it good run through. Huge, booming sound. Amazing. Nice companion to my Woody Guthrie SJ.

 

They still have another of the same model on their sales floor, they were surprised they hadn't sold yet but said this type of guitar wasn't everybody's cup of tea. These two and one at Wildwood were the only new ones I could find. If you're looking/wishing for/wanting one of these It's still hanging there and they are always great to deal with.

Oh, yeah. They are something special.

 

Be nice to your shoulder, though.

 

Yours doesn't exist until it appears in photos here, you know ; ).

 

Congrats- enjoy the big deep.

If I may be so bold, (and please forgive my being indelicate sir) but how much would one expect to pay for the one that remains for sale in the music store?

Nice guitar. Had the chance to see one being built at the factory in early June - maybe its yours !

I have one and love it. The twelve fret neck makes it so comfortable to play, and it has such a rich, complex voice. I hope you enjoy yourself.

It's inspired by the Roy Smeck Stage Deluxe of yore (or modern day Jackson Browne). 12 frets, the body an almost uniform depth, big V neck, rosewood back and sides, and a great Baggs Lyric pick up.

It's been a busy weekend and I just now had a few moments to change strings and polish her up a bit. Up until about two weeks ago I wouldn't have considered a 12 fret Gibson, but man...what a great sounding and playing guitar!

 

Looking forward to getting to know this one better!

Couple more.

 

E.M. Shorts is a great shop, I enjoy hanging out there and playing all the guitars. They also had a nice maple J-185 that sounded really good.

Telemaster, is Jon Ray still leading the charge over there? I've had dealings with him in the past, and he always made sure the transaction went great, I've not shopped from them for a while but still have 2 of the guitars and one amp I bought from him. (I live in Mass so it was all MO purchases)

 

Jon was/is a right guy.

Jon is still there but I've always dealt with Lance. I don't think this shop has much turnover and just a few guys work there. It's sort of a "throwback" of a store...great vibe and they are always happy to let you play the guitars all you want.
