NGD: 1997 Rose Morris RI

Postby (Kyle) » Fri Nov 10, 2017 4:07 pm

Been dreaming of one of these guitars for a long time, whilst browsing a few days ago I found the dream version: first year run 1986, same year as Tom Petty's with similar fading too.

Arrived yesterday, quick clean up and restring and very much enjoying it. Love these 12k toasters, they have extra grunt over the scatterwounds (7.4k).

Anyway, here's some pics. It'll hopefully get its first run out at tomorrow's gig.

Beautiful guitar, I'm especially fond of the gold guards and TRC. It has aged very gracefully, looks a lot like the original fireglos of the early '60s.

That is a stunning guitar! I am envious. Play the heck out of that thing. Congratulations. I keep picturing it with the Vintage TV style knobs ;)
