  2. GTFO, you know that can be remedied. Now you have no excuses.
  3. I stand behind these amps as being some of the best. Really great and if you love 10's @Jakeboy this one would be a great addition. Rob has been posting schematics on Facebook and I believe the last upgrade schematic is available. He will not do it, but it can be done. I will say that the one that I played in Nashville was the newest version and sounded better than my 1x12 combo that I had. But the 2x10 combo I had sounded just as good as the Nashville Amp and was not the newest upgrade. I think it was the 10's .

    With this guitar I didn't have the usual "Getting to know you" time. Out of the case it felt like home, and it didn't paint me into any corners. It has a wide palette of tones with the just the volume knob. Splitting the bridge is great, it is not icepicky and sounds more like an under wound P90 than a weak single coil. I had to makeshift my second pedalboard together so I could hear what it would sound like through my Sexdrive/OD11/Gen5 Echo. Having the slight compression from the Sexdrive really makes that already great coil tap come to life. The Sexdrive is one pedal that once you have played with one at your feet, you won't know how you ever got along without it. At least into a Fender,Vox that are already naturally compressing a little. This beast also shines with my "Rock" Rig. Echophonic/JMP11/Tremolo Pedal into a Carmen Ghia Shishkov's are worth the wait, so be patient, be open, enjoy the process and you will be rewarded. BTW @Northfield did you add those ebony bottons on the keys or is that how they came? LOVE THEM!

    I know, but this weekends trip was of those non guitar related trips. I guess I could have gotten #0090 its own room and hung out there. LOL

    I have exhausted all scenarios. This is the guitar that resulted from my years of... Well, whatever the hell it was that I was doing down in the dungeon all these years.

    The best part of this NGD happened when I plugged it in. Straight into my Carmen Ghia with my JMP Pedal and I didn't have to adjust anything in comparison to my Tele. This bridge pickup is a masterpiece, it was Josh's idea and I had nothing to do with it. It was a leap of faith, I told him what I wanted, he translated it into what you see. It is the best Gravelin Pickup i've heard to date.

    The nickel bar is bolted all the way through and the saddles are attached to it. The saddles are not screwed to the body. How do I know? I was wanking so hard yesterday I broke a string and had to change it out. LOL The string tension is so freaking awesome, this guitar managed to keep a bit of snap on the Low E and keep a loose feel but a focused sound.
  12. It is pretty much perfect. #0090 feels like he married a 96 Wraptail Studio with a 2000's Vintage Neck Shape. The guitar just feels so like home. I'll be 100% I love #0070 but it doesn't feel as natural as #0090, the neck and body really have come along nicely.

    @hamerhead, yes sir it is officially here! More to come soon.
  15. He was here for 3hrs, because the piano was tuned so low. He got is super close and didn't break any strings, so he was happy. One more time in 6 Months to bring it to pitch and we can keep it on a schedule.

    Gushing on NGD has a bipolar affect on the guitar community. We have a select few who have been lucky enough to be able to pony up, those who dream of the day that when they can afford their own NGD, and then we have the jaded and sarcastic to make up the remainder of the bunch . I'll leave it up to your imagination, but if it was a Pie Chart you could envision what the shares would look like. So i'll do my best to lay this out as honest as I can. This is for the ones that are sitting on the fence, with a dream of one day owning a Shishkov. I ordered the "Working Man's Guitar", it was a dream that was thrown out as a possible "HFC Run" that never happened. Why, because when you get a bunch of people who can ask for anything, that is exactly what they do. Only they don't ask for the same thing, and can't settle for less. After receiving #0070, I knew what I wanted to order and Team Shishkov was up to the challenge. The process is what is special about doing a custom order, but its not for the faint of heart. You can get anything you ask for, but if you don't like what you get, it is on you. So keeping it simple, I wanted a mahogany Guitar, P90/Humbucker Routes, Hardtail through the body (no sustain block). The pickups needed to be clear with punch, and the bridge bucker needed to have a strong split. I wanted to use one guitar all night, even if the other guitar player switched from playing Tele's to a LP and I needed to change tones. Simple right? I always kept one thing in mind, leave Mike and Josh enough room to work and let the guitar become what I wanted instead of making them work in a box. First change came with the wood, I get an email with a request to change the wood to a piece that nobody had claimed yet. I gave it a big thumbs up! Josh wanted to do a 12 Screw pickup design and after some discussion (sometimes i'm worrisome) I green lighted that as well. Since I left the bridge open ended, Mike looked around and came up with the Hannes Bridge. I wanted the good attributes of the Sustainblock without the inherent brightness that comes along with it. So after we discussed it (because I just liked to hear Mike explain it too me) we continued. Ah, the tuners, so the Hannes looked so modern that the guitar needed modern tuners. The Schaller Divinci tuners were beautiful, modern with a touch of vintage. Ok the color I stole from someone else Shishkov, but sometimes other people have great ideas too. The final result, is a guitar that is light, punches like Mike Tyson and can hold a note longer than Celine Dion. To Mike and Team Shishkov I know you put the same amount of love into every guitar, but sometimes things just happen. Sometimes they just come together in a way that cannot be explained, but i'll try. I have owned some of the most infamous Hamers to come through the HFC. Maybe not the most coveted, but the ones that were known tone machines that had that extra 10%. The first being the 77 Sunburst that when through so many hands here, along with BCR Greg's Personal Hamer Vector(#72), and Greg's Personal BCR JR. This guitar stands toe to toe with all of them, the pickups are perfect, the neck is perfect ,and it reminds me of those guitars. The harmonics are crazy good and so is the sustain. I wasn't even playing that loud, but the guitar would hold a note like you were stepping on a sustainer pedal. This is my Forever Guitar, and I don't take that lightly.
