    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2015-5

    .
    Welcome to Day 5 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (NYNGD)!

    Hi all! Thanks for the kind words and comments on yesterday's NYNGD #2015-4!

    Today's NYNGD is a really beautiful and understated guitar. This Silhouette is finished in Sapphire Black, which I think has become one of my favorite EBMM finishes (alas, now discontinued). In addition to the killer finish, this one is even more special because of the black pearloid pickguard. Wow. This guy has the stock H-S-H pickup setup a great 24-fret rosewood fretboard. Another great workhorse Silhouette!











    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...)

    Sapphire Black with the black pearl pickguard does look pretty sinister. I love the combination. Another excellent choice, my good man.

    I am loving the varied models so far, but I gotta say...it is high time for a Floyded Axis to make an appearance in the Class of 2015 lineup.

    2019 Albert Lee - BFR - Electric Shimmer
    2019 Axis SS semi hollow - DuBaldo Blue - rosewood neck
    2019 StingRay fretless - BFR - Sierra Vintage Burst
    2018 Axis SS - BFR - Buckeye Burl
    2017 StingRay 5 - 30th Ann
    2013 Luke III - PDN - emerald green sparkle
    - rosewood neck
    2012 Morse - BFR - Dark Lord
    2010 Axis SS - red flame - rosewood neck
    2009 Axis - pink quilt
    2006 StingRay fretless - 30th Ann
