    Hi everyone, I’ve been having a very busy year personally and professionally so I haven’t posted much. However my beautiful wife absolutely insisted I got a great 50th birthday present. So that meant a NGD so that means you great people like to know. I already have a Tele so I thought I would get a strat but couldn’t find one I liked - the American special, American performer, or Mexican roadhouse deluxe weren’t doing it for me which seemed odd. Anyway my good lady wife suddenly said “how come you don’t have a Les Paul?” And I said I wasn’t a “Gibson guy”. However after a strange look from my good lady we decided we should try one so I began looking in the “Tribute / studio” price range. We went for a test drive and it turned out I was a Gibson guy. The studio won easily, so when one turned up at the same price as a tribute I / we pulled the trigger. ( I have a great wife). Here is the obligatory picture. I can also confirm it came with a very nice case and jack plate. £999 brand new which is a good deal in the UK. The colour is BBQ burst
