    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2015-1

    .
    Happy Holidays and Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (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!

    Before we begin: In the past I've received PM's about my collection and whether I play all of these guitars. The same question came up during my NYNGD posts a few years ago and my answer was pretty detailed and well thought-out, so please check it out here!

    This year I was my usual GAS-prone self and again bought too many guitars. Some new, some used, all EBMM (OK, except a couple of other goodies that I will launch in my Guitar Gallery before New Years).

    The first one is a guitar that most of you probably saw being sold by mystixboi1 in the For Sale thread -- a really sweet Albert Lee HH in a custom Purple Sparkle finish with all-rosewood neck.

    I bought this from John in a combo deal along with another cool EBMM that we'll see in the next couple weeks. This is the first AL I have ever played and I just love it. So different from my other EBMM's and yet it feels just like home! And man, does this finish rock. I hope EBMM does a PDN run with this finish!













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

    Thanks for looking everyone!

    (Also, in case anybody gets any funny ideas -- these guitars are not at my house. They are all in my very secure and alarmed studio facility. I usually only have two guitars floating around the house...)

    Great collection. I would have difficulties knowing which one to pick up and play!

    Just out of curiosity, are they all stored in the one place?

    Soooooo hot! So glad that you like it. I had no idea that you were the one I sold it to(meaning - the guy that has the amazing collection). I've been tempted to buy another one and have marty bell do the same finish. He did such a great job with it.

    Anyway, enjoy!!!
