A year with my Millimetric MGS3

A year with my Millimetric MGS3

I knew it must have been approaching the arrival 'anniversary' soon but with life as busy as it's been of late it had slipped my mind. It wasn't until someone kindly commented on my 'NGD' unboxing video over on my YouTube channel last night that I realised yesterday marked a year to the day since my MGS3 arrived! So I thought it might be good to follow up on my time spent with the guitar and ultimately, did I still admire it as much as those first few weeks/months we often call the honeymoon period. Well the good news for me, is of course a resounding yes!

I was kindly approached by a writer at Stuff Magazine as they wanted to include Millimetric Instruments in their 'Upvoted' segment covering 9 superb guitars. What more I had the opportunity to photography it myself too which as a photography fan for almost as long as guitars was something I couldn't pass up to have a photo I had taken as the main image for the article, very humbled!

But I must say, it feels very cool to have used my own personal MGS3 for the shoot and have it in a major print magazine! Thanks to Stuff Magazine and Richard Purvis for getting in touch and having me involved in this feature, means a lot!

#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!

#MGS3Build - Complete!

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!

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.

#MGS3build - My personal Millimetric MGS3 build

After a super excited, but patient wait. It's become my turn for my personal build by Millimetric Instruments. Cast your minds back to around this time last year, I sold a guitar I'd owned for a number of years after finally seeing the astonishing work by Florian in person, and felt super content in knowing once it's my turn it most certainly will be worth the wait. Well, I received the very first couple of photos of the build which will be commencing soon, after Florian went wood shopping for my MGS3 build.
