    Cool NGD: St. Vincent "Starry Night" PDN

    Holy...

    I had seriously underestimated how much I would love this guitar upon receiving it. Don't get me wrong, I knew I'd love it well, but damn...the neck is just sooooo smooth. The sounds are really diverse and I'm finding I'm using pickup selections I normally don't use. And chunk? It drives a JCM800 right into perfection.

    I was also a bit nervous about not having fret markers on the fingerboard, but a friend told me I'd be surprised at how much I actually use the side markers and don't realize it. He was right! I've had zero issues getting around.

    I also lucked out in getting the matching headstock model at the same price as the non-matching! Additionally, everyone is right in that the sparkle finish doesn't get justice in images. AT ALL. It's really actually pretty understated, but beautiful, in person.

    Good lord. Thank you, EBMM!

    It really feels that way after seeing a few other models. Also, the guitar is just so small compared to others. I love how the body hugs to yours and feels very lightweight.

    Wow! If I had one, I'd put a clear pickgard on it to let that finish shine through!

    I'm wondering what the underneath looks like. You think it would be that clean cut under the pick guard and wouldn't have other routing showing?

    Remember the old abalone and moonstone pickguards? Would be so awesome on this, or even black mother of toilet seat.
