#MGS3Build Update - NGD! Box opening of my Millimetric Instruments MSG3!

Huge day for me! After patiently waiting for my turn on the build list until this point today, it's been an awesome experience topped off with the guitar arriving safely today. I thought it would be apt to film the un-boxing of this really special moment (for me anyway!) and you can watch the video below!


Here's some quick photos taken today, needless to say more will follow and some sound clips when I can too. Thanks again to Florian for doing an incredible job with my order, the guitar has far surpassed my hopes and really looking forward to getting used to it and playing for many years to come!

Seeing the colour come to life on my previous #MGS3Build update certainly made the build feel real, but not only that, I knew it wouldn't be long at all before I saw it all in one piece. The photo I shared on that previous article wasn't the best representation of the true colour, apologies there, but hopefully these images will give you a better idea of the colour and thoughts behind choosing it.

Last week was crammed full of seriously exciting updates from Montreal, safe to say the build is feeling very real now! I was able to see my idea for colour/finish come to life and it didn't disappoint, in fact it exceeded my expectations really!

For those of you that enjoy videos over written articles, I've made this humble video talking through some of the finer spec details of our UK demonstration Millimetric Instruments MGS2. This is not a demo as such, but you can hear the guitar in the background music throughout. 'Tone' Demo videos with much better guitar players than me will follow, where I plan to feature a variety of playing/music styles and sounds available from the guitar. For now, this video is simply to go through the specifications of this build, from body materials & finish, to fret wire, pickups and strap buttons. Yup, you get it all! But if anything is unclear or you'd like further info, do please contact me directly via my website or with Millimetric Instruments directly.

Well this is getting so exciting for me and it's beginning to sink in what is happening! The last #mgs3build update finished by showing the chunk of walnut which will become the neck. Well Florian has been super busy the last few days roughing out the neck shape, profile, headstock and heel etc which you soon realise is quite the task with the quality of work he displays.

Another exciting day in MGS3Build world! We left off from the last build update with the pickup routes completed, so now was the time for the wire channeling which is shown in the main post image above. Starting to look like a guitar now for sure!
