Thanks for comments my friends! The pickup on the guitar is Slash's signature model bridge pickup. I did not like it on my les paul after a quick test so I put it in this one. My other cigar box guitar has Seymour Duncan Hot Rodded SH-4 Jeff Beck humbucker and it also works good.

Nice video performance ND! Powered by JD and 120v ....you rock!

Holy moley! I hope that wasn't actually JD in that bottle. Ha ha. That homemade amp looks really cool and sounds great. Thanks for sharing.

"2 of My Favourite Neck Oils"

Comment by Bob "Ambrose" Negus on May 15, 2019 at 6:50am

That's some neat kit you've got, Nasty De.  Really enjoyed watching your video!  Mine's normally a JD or bourbon-based lubrication.

What kind of poison  do you guys use for Neck oil? My favorite are Finnish beer and Fireball Whisky Liquor. :D

Comment by AGP # on May 14, 2019 at 4:31pm

Both CBG and Amp sound mighty fine Nasty, I'm sure the "Note Oil" helped, or "Neck Oil" as I usually call it :-D

Comment by Nasty DeVille on May 14, 2019 at 10:53am

Rock on Andries! :) I need some more note oil =D
