    NGD!! Non-Guild Content

    Well, it finally happened!! I got my BLUE guitar! This is the one I've been GASing for well over a year now. HUGE BIG shout out to txbumper57 for being diligent and giving me a heads up on this Musician's Friend Open Box find. THANK YOU!!

    So I got Express Shipping and it arrived yesterday afternoon at 2 pm. I was pacing looking for that brown truck, almost drove myself crazy! It's kinda warm here and I had no idea how long it had been on the truck but the box was kinda warm so I just took the case out of the box and then left for Happy Hour because I kept circling like an insane person. Got back 3 hours later and opened it up. This guitar is SO beautiful and the sound is much more than I could've hoped for! For such a small guitar it's got a nice punchy bass, but still even across the whole range. A warm and full sounding guitar with a Sitka Spruce top, with local Oregon Myrtlewood back and sides. It's the limited edition with the beautiful gray/blue stain and a killer burst on the top. Satin neck, ebony pinless bridge and fretboard.

    I promise to take more and better photos soon!! I give you my Breedlove Oregon Concert Rogue!!













    This thing is SO shiny and my photography skills suck, but suffice to say it's WAY better looking in real life and it sounds even better than it looks!! I'm pretty darned sure this one's a keeper!!

    Thanks again to TX for the assist and heads up on this one!!

    If you look at other blue guitars now would that constitute adultery? Or only if you actually play 'em?
    Oh, hey, almost forgot, a while ago Breedloves came with Bridge Doctors built in.
    This one?
