    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2015-11

    .
    Welcome to Day 11 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (NYNGD)!

    ...And a Merry Christmas to you and yours! If Christmas isn't your thing, then Happy Friday!

    Thanks for the kind words and comments on yesterday's NYNGD #2015-10!

    For Christmas Day, I decided to showcase a beautiful quilt top EBMM 25th Anniversary -- the color goes well with holly and Christmas spirit! This guitar is a total masterpiece. Look at it! Wow... I already have a 25th, but when I saw this top for sale I couldn't resist! Just STUNNING. These guitars were amazing and I can't help but wonder if the Reflex (which was the production version of the 25th) would have fared better with figured maple tops instead of the opaque colors...

    It's been a while since I played either of my 25th's and I played this one today and remembered how great the phase switch is for changing up the tones. I remember my initial reaction to these when they came out, I thought, "It's just a 'big Axis'..." But, in fact, it's way more than that. Having said that, the larger body size never really jived with me -- I like EBMM's because they feel smaller (which works when you're 5'-6").

    Anyway, enjoy this 25th Anniversary and have a wonderful Christmas! Starting tomorrow we are on the home stretch for this year's NYNGD and I have some goodies coming for you!

















    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...)

    That one looks great ondeed! The only thing that bothers me is the huge pickup rings ebmm uses. I know its just a detail but i really prefer direct mounted pickups.
