Well it's not fancy but I love it. I went with the alder body, maple neck. Ebony fretboard, Translucent Honeyburst, diamond inlays, Passive.

A simple, but classic beauty. I love the subtle swirls/eyes in the alder.

It looks like you got the rounded body sides, eh? I bet that's pretty comfy.

Happy NGD!

You know the rounded body now comes standard. I remember when that was an option.

I've got a pair of J99A's on my walnut fretless. I LOVE their tone.
