The NDM3's body is based on the Talman series. Features include a basswood body and a hard-tail fixed bridge. It's fitted with soapbar single coil pickups, which is a departure from the humbuckers in all previous NDM guitars. Noodles describes the NDM3 as "a simple working-man's guitar."
This model replaced the NDM2 and was replaced by the NDM4 in 2016.
