    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2015-9

    .
    Welcome to Day 9 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (NYNGD)!

    Hi all! Thanks for the kind words and comments on yesterday's NYNGD #2015-8!

    My friends, we now cross the midpoint of our journey. Including today, there are 9 days left until New Year's Eve. Let's step it up a notch, shall we?

    Let's start with a stunning quilt top Translucent Black Axis. Let's be clear: this is NOT a BFR Axis, nor it is an Axis Tribute. In fact, this is an earlier Axis from April 1996 a short time after EVH left EBMM. Long before the BFR so a super quilt top was fair game! For a guitar that's 19 years old, this one could pass for new -- perfect condition...

    While this guitar certainly is a member of the Class of 2015, I actually purchased it from fellow knucklehead Jim Warnstedt on 12/31/2014 before heading out to a New Year's Eve party (and after posting the final NYNGD of 2014).

    Besides being a looker, this guitar sounds and plays great and has been recorded recently on some new material I am working on!













    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...)
