NGD: ESP Mockingbird

Post by haooomaru » Thu Oct 29, 2015 2:09 am

So I managed to snag this interesting beast from the motherland..

No serial number (!??), seller description indicates it's around 15 years old

Flame top looks cool as hell! The maple top is reaaally thick (around 17mm)

Fingerboard seems to have been PAINTED after the fact.. Finished in black. It feels a bit weird.. It's smoother than the smoothest ebony, which is taking a while to get used to.

Has a volume knob and what seems like ... a gain knob. Having it at half-way is like having a tone knob at full, going past half-way and you get a massive EQ boost. No idea if I would ever have a good use for this, but glad to have the option???

Anyway, overall it plays fantastic! Every inch of this guitar is just great quality, and the attention to detail is what you'd expect.


I have plans to replace the novelty knobs.
