    NGD - Silhouette HT 2016 PDN Starry Night

    Just scored this AMAZING guitar. I can't believe how butter-like the playability is. Takes it to a whole new level. My first guitar with SS frets. Simply amazing. As others have said pictures in no way do the finish justice. I bought it from the original owner and it's only about a month old. Gave the fb and neck the wonder wipe treatment and polished it and it's just like new. He put in a Duncan Jazz in the neck and a Custom Custom in the bridge. The single coil has been disconnected. 500k pots and a 3 position switch have been installed. I actually REALLY like the sounds of it this way. I may order a new HH pick guard for it eventually. Haven't decided yet. Another option would be to put the 5 position selector back in and wire up the single coil. Could get some interesting sounds that way too.

    Congrats! It's a great finish. I can't imagine doing that much customization on a new guitar and flipping it inside a month!

    Congrats!
    Shame it's been molested, but at least you won't feel bad about setting it up to your liking and playing the paint off of it...

    *come to think of it, I molested mine a bit as soon as I got it....and I'm not done yet...

    Wonderful Silo mate!
    I'd like to have an HH hardtail Silo too, to be paired with my Special.

    Update to the Silo PDN 2016

    Well, seeing how the single coil had already been disconnected and the stock pups and caps switched out, I went ahead and ordered a new pick guard. I also took it in and had a new 5 way super switch installed. The pup config is now:

    1. Bridge HB
    2. Bridge rear coil
    3. Bridge and Neck HB
    4. Neck front coil
    5. Neck HB

    One other thing - this is my first guitar with a black pick guard and they are IMPOSSIBLE to keep from getting scratched. The OCD part of me can't stand it .

    Some updated pics:

    Beautiful!
    But why no 2 mixed single coil position? They sound better alone or too much noise?

    Just wanted it that way. Straight up single. They sound great - absolutely ZERO noise.
