NGD Logan Jazzmaster

Post by AlumNeck » Tue Sep 10, 2019 1:18 pm

Really basic guitar for a Jazzmaster with kind of a tele color scheme. I will likely mod this but for now I am gonna play this bad boy! First impressions the pick ups sound really good and neck is well dressed feels great. Tuned it up and its pretty much intoneated, smooth consistent action not too low not too high (good middle of the road set up). This is a hand shaped body with minimal if any grain fillers so not CNC perfect edges and I must say makes me like it even more, has that hand made feel and character out of the box!

Just under 8lbs.
22 medium jumbo frets, 9.5 radius, 1-11/16" nut, Modern C shape.
Vintage split shaft tuners, (15-1 ratio)
Amber tinted, Nitro finished Maple Neck..
Alder body finished in 50"s (TV) yellow, 100% nitrocellulose lacquer.
Seymour Duncan Antiquity 50"s pickups. (custom Shop)
Standard bridge and tremolo..
3 way toggle switch, 250K CTS pots, switch craft jack, Master volume and tone..
Black 3 ply pick guard.

Nice! My girlfriend has a Logan thinline tele with Lollars in it and it's a REALLY nice guitar. I had never heard of the guy - she got it on Craigslist for like $500. Total score. Have fun with it!

Yeah whaaa? Are these an Asian thing? Immediately looked at the pics before reading and assumed they were just import guitars but this is like a custom thing? That’s awesome

Nope. He's a small custom builder in the USA. For whatever reason he just isn't as well known as some of the other big names... he makes very nice guitars and since he is little known his prices are very reasonable.

Yep Adam pretty much nailed it!

I spoke to Bob super nice guy if you are serious just call him up he loves guitars too and he could not be nicer to talk too! His prices are extremely fair so there is little to no haggling its just what parts and finish do you want on what body and neck. If you want something super fancy or super custom I think there maybe better options. Now if you want off the rack Fender combinations that don't exist or cost too much then this should be on you research list at the very least. These are solid work horses and they fit standard parts cause thats what he uses to build them. So i think they are great for modding a platform guitar if you will made by one guy. The necks he gets pre made and finishes them and if anyone has very had a rough neck knows a lot of magic goes into finishing. Personally I like the that it's hand made and you can just call the guy up.
