Nude stuff is awesome, how're you finding it so far?
That's my main guitar since 3 years. Gabo is a wonderful guitar builder! I never had a guitar with such sustain and resonance! You literaly feel every not you play!
I get that, I have an EGC and an EGC bolt-on so I know how lively aluminium instruments can be. What's the thickness of the neck like?

I never measured the neck thickness, but it's very confortable. I suppose like a normal fender c-profile (?)

Interesting, were you able to specify neck thickness or any other specs when you ordered?

no, Nude necks are standard, I don't think you can order a different thickness. the only thing you can choose is the scale, Gibson, fender or baritone.

Not a fully family photo, this is so y’all can see how the OTM color on the Vintera 60s Jag stacks up to the same color on my AO Jazzmaster. Kinda neat I thought! The AO is def more on the blue end of the spectrum and the Vintera is greener. In the right light they’re close but clearly not the same.

Much prefer the more greened out OTM on the Vintera, should be the standard for OTM honestly.

It’s real weird in that in this low light in the pic you can see the difference between em, but the rest of the time they’re very similar looking. In fact the bluer one here in the pic is much greener in person. The light makes the Jag almost veer into Sherwood Green territory haha.

It's probably the way the 2 guitars are angled slightly differently, reflecting the wall colour in different measures.

I need either less guitars, or a bigger bed.

Image

from top to bottom :
  • Parts bass (semi DIY semi hollow body, Stagg 24 fret neck, bartolini pickup and hofner-style bridge and tailpiece)
  • Lag Tiki Ukulele
  • Epiphone G-310 (1992, Samick/korean-made, GFS humbuckers and Bigsby B5 copy)
  • Hurgy Toy (pocket hurdy-gurdy by french maker Leo Maurel)
  • Jim Harley Les Paul Custom (plywood copy, with Eastwood HB-sized single coils and pickup behind the bridge)
  • Home-made electric fretless version of a dutar (two stringed central asian lute)
  • Yuri Landman Homeswinger
  • Stagg Mandolin

And there's two cheap acoustic guitars back at my parents...
