    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2016-1

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

    OK, off we go on what, I guess, has become an annual tradition! 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 as we ring in 2017! I usually run this so the Grand Finale falls on New Years Eve, but I got off to a late start this year so we're going to run into January a bit. While 2016 was a pretty crap year all-around (my brother-in-law died, my Gran died, David Bowie, Sir George Martin, Prince, Glenn Frey, Keith Emerson, Greg Lake, Merle Haggard, Leonard Cohen, Nick Menza, Muhammed Ali, Scotty Moore (Elvis), Paul Kantner (Jefferson Airplane), Maurice White, George Michael, Florence "Mrs. Brady" Henderson, and now Carrie Fischer, and more), maybe I can cheer you up because 2016 was a good year for my guitar collection!

    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!

    Even though I set out to roll easy this year, GAS took hold as always and I 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 kimonostereo in the For Sale thread -- an outstanding Albert Lee HH in Classic White.

    Man, I just love this guitar. Such a great retro vibe, and the classic white finish with the pearloid pickguard just speaks class. The all-rosewood neck feels amazing, and otherwise it's just a great workhorse. While the photos here show it with a stock EBMM HH layout, I have another pickguard loaded with TV Jones pickups which take the classic vibe to a new level!











    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...)
