NGD -- my Metallic Gold GH3 is here

Postby silvergoat2k6 » Mon Mar 19, 2018 6:36 am

Received this on Saturday, unboxed it yesterday, and just spent 3 hours with it this morning down in my basement studio...what an awesome guitar this is...it's absolutely flawless, and looks, feels, and sounds great. Took awhile to get used to playing with that middle pickup in the way, but all is good now...just a slight change in hand position was all it took.

Here are some pics...enjoy!

They play wonderfully. I really like the Hipshot bridge. You will certainly enjoy that beautiful guitar!!

Wow! That looks great! With that reverse 3+3 headstock, it looks almost like a Silver Sky!!!! I'd rather have the Kiesel, thank you.

I have a Lil'59 in one of my Strats - LOVE that pickup. It's one of the few single-coil sized humbuckers that sounds like a full-sized 'bucker.

Happy for you Silvergoat!! So which you do you like better --- this one or the White CS3 with the Light Blue edges?

Very classy lookin' guitar there. Good call on the non-matching headstock. Enjoy.

It's interesting that you would mention the Silver Sky. It's a great guitar, but I already have a GH3! I love the Lil '59 as well!

They are both great guitars Vaughn...the GH3 is a lot more versatile and is a lot lighter, but I learned how to play on a LP so I tend to lean towards those. My CS3 blows any LP I have owned out of the water.

Thanks...the headstock was inspired by X-Mann's GH3.
