    NGD - Swamp Thing

    So this was waiting for me when I got home today! Swamp ash Silhouette standard that's supposedly as old as I am, but somehow completely unblemished. I seriously don't think the previous owner has touched it in a couple decades. Some...questionable fretwork sort of informs that lack of use though; It looks like someone did a fret dress with their beltsander. Luckily there's plenty of fret left to fix that.

    This is my first MM, and I'm really loving the ergonomics. Neck is very comfy and feels compact in general compared to a strat.

    I've seen flat topped frets before on a few guitars. Usually from the previous owner bending all over the place. A level and crown should make it all nice again.
