    NGD - Noventa Telecaster in Vintage Blonde

    I was browsing Fender's website when I saw this strange Tele-looking guitar called a Noventa Telecaster. Once I found out it was a P-90 equipped Tele I became more interested because I love the sound of a P-90 pickup. I saw that there were some Noventa Teles in stock locally so I dropped by to...

    NBD, but it's on a Slow Boat From Mexico

    I own a P-bass but for a long time I've wanted to get a J-bass as well. There were several times when I nearly pulled the trigger on either the MIM or MIA Geddy Lee models, but something always held me back. I didn't know what I was looking for but I knew the Geddy Lee models weren't quite it...

    Snow Angels

    Where I live, it's typical to have snow on the ground for 7-8 months of the year. That must sound horrifying to those of you living in warmer climes but it is what is what it is where I live. The awesome scenery more than makes up for it. There is a semi-official program in many communities in...

    NGD - Eastwood Surfcaster 12/6. Twice the necks, twice the fun!

    I haven't been on TDPRI in a while due to illness but wanted to share my latest acquisition - the Eastwood Surfcaster 12/6 because it's an unusual guitar. Even though I've never lived by the ocean I have a real thing for surf music and surf guitars. I love the old Frankie and Anettte movies...

    What's Up With The Ramones Official Online Store?

    Does anyone know what's going on with the Ramones official online store? I've been checking them regularly to see if they have the classic black Presidential Seal t-shirt back in stock and I'm only willing to buy direct from them because there are way too many knockoffs out there. I checked...

    NBD - SBMM Short Scale StingRay Bass

    Reading threads on TDPRI can be dangerous. I didn't even know that Sterling had come out with a short scale version of a StingRay until I read this TDPRI thread. You can guess what happened next - yup, I bought one. Today I finally went to pick up my Daphne Blue SBMM Short Scale StingRay bass...

    The Big 1-0-0-0

    With my post count now in the 990s, I'm about to have my posting odometer roll over to 1000 posts. What happens then - do I get a door prize, a cake with a scantily clad woman or two jumping out of it, a ticker tape parade, learn the secret TDPRI guitar riff, or just the ability to reach post...

    George Jetson Just Delivered This

    Yup, George Jetson just delivered a supersonic jet fighter in the shape of a guitar. I gave it a quick workout and only have time to post a one word review: Whoa. A snapped a couple of quick pics of what I just received and a Backlund family photo. That's all the pics I'm taking at the moment...

    I Feel Bad For My MF Gear Advisor

    Some of us including me get regular phone calls and/or emails from a MF gear advisor trying to drum up business and this morning I got yet another email from my MF gear advisor. Well, this morning was the wrong time for me to get such an email because I had been thinking about why I never buy...

    OnStage RS7030 12-space Rack

    I was looking to get an inexpensive small rack and the OnStage RS7030 seems to be the best budget choice. It has 12 rack spaces which is plenty for me and I doubt I would be putting gear in it that weighs more than half of its advertised 75 lb. limit. Does anyone have any feedback to share...

    NGD - Backlund Rockerbox DLX LTD

    I was originally just going to add to this thread since I now have the identical guitar, but I think I'm going to ramble on a bit so better that I start my own thread. I've been irresistibly drawn to John Backlund's guitar designs since I first laid eyes on one of his Backlund Model 100's. It...

    Guitar Karaoke

    Because of what's happening in the world, I haven't been able to play with anyone so instead I've been spending a lot of time tossing CDs into the player and playing along with the songs. I was telling a friend of mine about this the other day and he referred to what I was doing as guitar...

    The Waiting is the Hardest Part

    Yesterday FedEx delivered a box to my house. When I opened the box there was another box. When I opened *that* box, I found this inside: But qu'est-ce que c'est? What could it be? The sharp eyed people with good memories might know. Because what's inside is so special, I want to wait until...

    NGD - Epiphone Casino Coupe in Turquoise

    Last fall I was looking for another P90 equipped guitar and ordered an Epiphone ES-339 P90 PRO in Pelham Blue from MF. When it arrived there was a nasty surprise inside the box - the headstock was broken - so back it went. Between the time I ordered the ES-339 and receiving it, I had bought an...

    NGD - '72 Limited Edition Tele Custom Purple Sparkle

    For several years a '72-style Custom has been on my wish list. I had always assumed I would pick up a black one at some point but what I really love are guitars with bold coloured finishes. Therefore, when I saw this purple sparkle one I had a GAS explosion and when the dust had cleared I...

    About the Epiphone Vintage PRO Thunderbird, from Epiphone's website: "The Epiphone Thunderbird Vintage PRO Bass is an incredibly accurate reproduction of the classic electric bass first introduced in 1963 that has since powered dozens of hits by artists like The Who, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Cheap...

    NGDx4 - The Epiphone Les Paul SL Quadruplets

    I feel like I should be passing out cigars! I recently became the proud papa of not one, not two, but FOUR Epiphone Les Paul SL guitars. I had originally ordered one (in Pacific Blue) from Cosmo Music in Toronto, Canada but somehow four ended up at my door. I blame my cat for ordering the...

    NGD - Gretsch G5420T Orange Sparkle

    A few days ago Long & McQuade posted their 2017 Gift Issue on their website and as I was browsing it one item really caught my eye - a Gretsch G5420T in an Orange Sparkle finish. I've wanted a Gretsch for some time now but had never found the right one for me. I love guitars with unusual...

    Help! My Inner Bassist Is Trying To Escape!

    I've been a guitarist most of my life but there was a time when I also played bass - but that was over 40 years ago. I sold off all of my bass gear many years ago but picked up a P-bass and small practice amp not too long ago and now I find I spend a lot of time looking for more basses to add...

    NGD: Guild M-75 Aristocrat Goldtop - WOW!!!

    I've wanted a goldtop guitar with P90s for a while now and had been shopping for a Les Paul, but hadn't come across one I liked. When I had an opportunity to pick up a new Guild M-75 Aristocrat Goldtop for a decent price I was intrigued but knew little about the guitar. After doing some...

    NGD - Epiphone SG Back In Black

    The very first guitar I owned was a Japanese copy of a SG (in a natural wood finish) that my parents bought for me in the early 70s. I had it for about 10 years before selling it. Last year I started feeling nostalgic and thought about adding a SG to my collection again. Whenever I was in a...

    NWSD - Line 6 Relay G10 Wireless System

    (I wasn't sure which forum to post this in but this seemed the closest one.) Over the years I've thought about getting a wireless system, not because I really needed one but because I thought it would be a cool gadget to have. Yes, I have an advanced case of GAS. Last week I was tripping over...

    I took delivery of the latest addition to my Telecaster family and she's a beauty! It's one of Fender's 2016 Magnificent 7 Limited Edition guitars - an American Standard in Seafoam Green with painted headstock and rosewood board. I wasn't able to get a decent full body shot but here are some...
