    Ngd...2012 d55



    Been waiting a while for one to pop up locally for a good price. Sam Ash yesterday I noticed it on the used section of their web site. Priced pretty good I went and looked. Setup was terrible with old light strings and zero relief (dull sounding and buzzing) so I couldn't really play it properly in the store...I knew fresh mediums and a quarter turn of the truss rod should do the trick. Pointed out some cosmetic flaws and haggled, and now she's home. Nothing major but some finish chipping on the lower bout. I'll likely have patched up but for now I'll be playing a lot. Sounds awesome of course! Some quick pics here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/HGTTmB5oFBSX8yG46
