    one thing that struck me was how heavy this guitar is!! Holy cow, I expected this pine tele to be one of my lightest guitars -- but its 9.2 Lbs!! :eek: That does beat out either of my LPs, BTW - but I'm totally cool w that, I LIKE heavy guitars

    And,

    I am planning on performing surgery on this puppy VERY soon (I bought this CV specifically with this mod in mind) - perhaps even this weekend, as I have almost everything in place for this project... I think I am going to have fun w/ this one! :cool:

    Sexy! That's great wood grain showing through there! Have fun with it. What humbucker is going in? Leaving the stock bridge pickup?

    I have an Epiphone Alnico Classic that I am going to solder a Nickel cover on (and install upside down :))

    I also have an SD Vintage Broadcaster for the bridge, and going with an old school "Broadcaster Blend" control circuit ... should be a beast when I'm done!

    Happy NGD, looks awesome. I've heard the weight really varies on these, anywhere between 7.5 and 9.5 lbs.
