    NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2014-6

    Welcome to Day 6 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days!

    Past Days: #2014-1 | #2014-2 | #2014-3 | #2014-4 | #2014-5

    For today's NYNGD may I present a 2002 Blue Dawn Axis:








    If you were paying attention above, you'll note that I said "2002 Blue Dawn Axis." So... as you can imagine, when I purchased this I THOUGHT that I had found an LE2007 Blue Dawn Axis from the special LE run that was done that year. I had no idea that Blue Dawn had been offered as a standard color in 2002 (and not sure how many years it was available). I had assumed it was a special color specifically for the LE2007 run, just like Black&Gold was the LE2006 run and Sequoia Gold was the LE2008 run. BAH... Do your research, you fool! (Jeff smacks his own forehead) I didn't even think to look for the LE2007 inlay at the 12th fret. So... in my Guitar Gallery, rather than taking its place right between the LE2006 Black&Gold and the LE2008 Sequoia Gold, this guy is instead stationed next to its cousin, the Burnt Apple Axis.



    Once I got past the annoyance at my slackery, I realized that she sure is a nice guitar and even though it doesn't have the LE2007 inlay, it's still a killer color! Feels great and rocks! Now... Anybody have an LE2007 Blue Dawn Axis you're looking to get rid of?

    I'll be back tomorrow with another NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Day!

    Thanks for looking everyone!

    (The back story in case you're new to my NYNGD: For the past couple of years I've done a fun thing that most of you I think enjoyed, and I thought I would do it again this year. Every year, I am a slacker about keeping my Guitar Gallery up to date... So, as a fun holiday thing, let's launch a guitar in the Guitar Gallery each day leading up to New Years Eve! In the past I've received PM's about my collection and whether I play all of these guitars. My answer is here!)

    Ah yes, I love Axis guitars with non-transparent tops, and sparkles are my favorite. Nice one(s).

    Sweet guitar. I love your new gear posts. After seeing the latest round, I browsed through some of the old ones. Impressive stuff. My collection of 10 guitars seems positively paltry in comparison.

    Nah, man. It starts with one, then goes to two, then goes to three, and snowballs from there! I had 10 at one point. I prolly should have stopped there. When I do these NYNGD it becomes clear to me how fricking insane I am… But if you want to be a wackadoo like me, it takes time!

    That's blasphemous.

    Haha. For some reason, this made me think of spinal tap.

    Challenge accepted! I might need a couple of decades and my own warehouse, but I'll get there.

    Hey Jeff,
    Ever think about selling off some of the collection and buying an island or something?
