Hey Guys,

I just received my new guitar and couldn't wait to share with you guys. As many might have known, I was playing my first guitar (JEM Jr) but then due to its build in carelessness (been 7 years without maintenance), I was popular for intonation and tuning issues on my REC takes.. haha. But now, I can't wait to try this thing out.

This was sent in to me by Monte Stevens (member on GMC as well) as a gift. Who could be so generous? Thanks Monte. I just had to pay the customization setup (pickups) and shipping costs all the way from US to Nepal. It took 3 weeks but was worth the wait!

Here are the specs:

Moses Carbon Fiber neck - 24 frets, Ibanez style headstock
LSR Nut in chrome
Steinberger gear-less tuners
Dimarzio Hambuckers (Air Nortion and Steve's Special)
ZR Bridge System
Q-Parts knobs
Custom shop JS style body - swamp ash with black metalic finish

My only choice was the pickups.. hehe. I wanted to experiment with new pickups and creme/black combination. I still need to learn how to restring the guitar and probably get a hang of new strings/neck and action.

I only had few minutes to play as it was late night yesterday and interestingly today, theres a blackout.. What a coincidence! Hope the electricity will come up soon and I can practicing. smile.gif Within those few minutes of playing, I found the tone was much richer, had some meat on it, clarity, sustain, warmth. Oh boy, I am loving it. And overall It looks damn sexy! I have been a satch fanboy and this couldn't have come earlier! smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

Cheers!!
