Thread: NGD Minus 2

  1. #1

    NGD Minus 2

    No not the temps.

    As I sit here I just received an email that a very cold box just arrived at the GC about 20 minutes ago.

    We have an annual company event here in CNY that will take me to meetings from 4:00 today until early Thursday.

    So I wait 2 days. Nuff time to let the box come to room temp.


    It's an F-30ce...or as TGC called it: Guild F30E7B1 Natural Acoustic Guitar.

    Hans helped out a bit last week to ID it for me, said that was the factory designation for it.

    In any event, it is somewhat similar to the F65CE, but blinged down considerably. Similar I would imagine to the JF-30-12 vs F-412.


    Looked pretty in the pictures from GC. Nice maple back. Hope the description and in hand description are accurate. Not much info for this specific guitar as the pictures never got through from the salerep


    Stay tuned!

    Cool. Congrats. Technically this should be a ANGD (Almost NGD) or NQYNGD (Not Quite Yet NGD).

    Iím curious to hear what the specs are on that, specifically the lower bout width and depth, and neck/nut width.

    It'd be like this one reported here http://www.letstalkguild.com/ltg/sho...30-OM-OOO-size in post number 41

    Usual disclaimers: Not mine, don't want it, no interest, etc ....
    Just to be clear that's a 16" lower bout maple archback with 24-3/4" scale and full 24 fret (2 octave) neck, most likely 1-5/8" nut if it's at "spec".
    3" deep.
    And pretty darn rare, I think this is only the 3rd one I've ever seen. (Well, probably 4th, now)
    And yes as far as I can tell it IS a blinged-down version of the first version of the F65ce, came out a year earlier.
    Maybe more correct to say the F65ce was a blinged-up F30ce.
    Assuming no major condition issues pretty sure $650's a great price, especially with unusually-sized original case.

    Oh, yeah, @Beecee:
    Congrats!
    Do you still have that F4ce in your sig?
    This oughta be an interesting comparison, both for body wood and scale length.
    Would like to hear the report.

    She is here. Boy I am really starting to fall for that thin neck, narrow nut. The F-112 was still there and I played that a bit but gosh what great little guitars these FXX CE's are

    Cool Case

    Top is stunning..rich amber, mellowed by time and based on the odor, 4,235 packs of Marlboros

    Those streaks are flash, not blems. Just some minor lacquer crazing
