NGD - Limited Edition LPB Bullet Tele

Post by jmurph » Thu Mar 11, 2021 11:12 am

What started out as a search for a Tele body to finish a build turned into buying a whole guitar for less than the cost of a body. I had some rewards points built up, so once I applied those and get the rewards I earn from buying the guitar, it'll be about $43 out of pocket.

I'm not really sure why they call it LPB, when it's definitely more IBM. Either way, it looks nice. The neck is decent, but I'll be swapping it out for an allparts neck with a 7.25" radius that I've had for a while. Pickups & electronics are getting replaced with the loaded pickguard from an Am Pro II.

One thing i am seriously disappointed in is the weight. I read & watched reviews where guys were saying they have thin, super lightweight bodies, but this sucker is probably about 8 lbs. Maybe i got an odd anchor.
