    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2015-4

    .
    Welcome to Day 4 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (NYNGD)!

    Hi all! Thanks for the kind words and comments on yesterday's NYNGD #2015-3!

    If you're not familiar or didn't stop by yesterday: 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! Standard caveat: In the past I've received PM's about my collection and whether I play all of these guitars. My answer is here!

    Today's NYNGD is another Axis Sport. Interestingly, for MANY years I was like, "I am only interested in the Floyd Axis. The Sport and the Super Sport are, to me, the 'Axis Junior'." Well, fast forward 15 years and I have discovered what these guitars are all about! First off, the vintage trem has grown on me, particularly because of the LIII. And the rounded top edge contour (instead of binding) is really comfy. And they sound GREAT!

    This bad boy has a great translucent teal finish, and is a no-pickguard variant. Can't decide if I like the pickguard Sports or the non-pickguard Sports better... Sounds great, plays great, love it!















    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. 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!)

    (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...)

    Trans teal is such a great colour. And the vintage style trem is so much easier and better then a floyd rose system in my opinion. Best trem system ever!

    Awwwww, yeah. That's my favorite of the bunch so far... I really like the wood. And, green is my 2nd favorite guitar color.
    Very nice, Jeff!

    Whoa. That is an incredible collection you have there... If i added up all the guitars i have bought and sold in my lifetime I'm sure the number would amount to somewhere around 50 or so. But i've never ever owned all of them at once!
