    NGD: SBMM AX30-D Natural Quilt

    Hey all - was lucky to get my hands on this one and took delivery yesterday. According to the shop I bought it from the guitar is a prototype which SBMM had laying around and it's basically new. After the customary wonder wipe treatment AND Frine fret polish this thing plays like a dream. The DiMarzio Axis pickups are awesome as always. The 12" radius fret board is perfect. I'm a very happy camper with this one. Neat to get a one of a kind instrument. Pics:

    That's because it's the only one of its kind out there. It's a prototype.

    Does anyone have difficulties opening the battery compartment? I am 70 and have some problems with my right hand and I have not figured out the easy way to do this. Thanks for any help anyone may offer, short of hanging up my guitars for good, or as Roland of Gilead has said “entering the clearing at the end of the path”.

    What's the black "thing" that looks stuck on there, below the switch? Don't believe I've ever seen something like that before.

    Looks like a stick-on pick holder.

    This thing is awesome. I have them on all 3 of my guitars - never lose your pick again!!! Nice if you play fingerstyle and need a place to keep the pick whilst doing so.
