New (belated) guitar day!
Real NGD was on friday, but some real life stuff and - of course - a lot of playing around with my new “toy” kept me busy and away from sharing my happiness here.
We actually went out to our local music store to get two old violins restored or at least some hints on who could help us out with that. This mission was at least partially successful, as we got an address where we can bring them to, but this is another story.
Being there, I could not resist the opportunity to check out a few electric guitars as I was having the desire to add one to “the family” for quite a while now. Coming from the acoustics side only and having literally no experience with e-guitars at all, I tried to explain what I imagine or hear in my mind - to be honest it was more an exclusion of what I don’t want leaving open a lot of possibilities.
But the shop assistant was just great in helping me out and directly picked up 3 different strats (Ibanez AZES31-VM, a Kauffmann 63 S in Sonic Blue and the PJD) and took us to a quiet room to showcase them and giving me the opportunity of trying them myself without disturbance.
By hearing and touching it the first time, I immediately fell for the PJD. Even though I must admit the Kauffmann was also a very decent sounding guitar with awesome playability.
Normally I take my decisions slowly, but this was an easy one - I took this signal red beauty home with me:
Here’s the happy little family:
Currently, I am using the Marshall MG15CFX but it gives me a little pain (Got it as a gift years ago). But definetly I am the problem, not the amp. Just need to get used to these things, I guess.
Some specs to the PJD Woodford Standard (Signal Red), as it is not (or no longer) shown on the PJD-site. The body is made from ash tree with satin finish, neck is baked maple and the fretboard made from rosewood. Bridge and Tuners are from Gotoh and it’s having 1 Humbucker and 2 Single coils by Cream T.
All in all, it makes me very happy.
