    NGD Yuriy Shishkov Master Design Masterbuilt 2005 Twisted Tele

    I bought this guitar yesterday from a good friend who bought it way back,
    new.
    The guitar is amazing, and has one of the best relic jobs I've seen from the Custom Shop.
    Only 50 of these were built. There were also 100 Team Built Limited Edition models built with supervision from the Masterbuilder.
    7.25 radius, medium C profile neck, '63 bridge pickup and twisted tele neck pickup.
    I am very happy with the guitar! It Rocks!
    This one is 41/50. Who else has one?

    Thanks a lot everyone!! This is a great guitar no doubt! The setup seemed to be perfect but now I am having some buzzing on 1st and 2nd string in the first 6 frets.
    I never had a bigsby before, and normally don't do setups myself.
    The neck is pretty straight, with little relief. I do not get other buzzes. The action is pretty low.
    Should I adjust the individual saddles of the first two strings and see what happens?

    Very cool.
    Mr. Shishkov is a master craftsman.
    He's made some incredible one-off pieces, too!

    Sounds as though the truss rod needs to be loosened a bit. Raising the strings can solve the problem, but it's usually better to loosen the truss rod if the buzzing is only on the lowesr frets.

    Yes Sir... You were dead on. Thanks for this. The neck moved a bit.

    The guitar was set up ok in summer withiut these issues. The neck had relief. Now its autumn and rainy humid season where I live. The neck went flat!
    Maybe weather caused it. Though I have 8 other electrics and the buzzing mentioned only Affected this guitar
