    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2016-5

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

    Thanks for the kind words and comments on Friday's NYNGD #2016-4, and sorry for the day off but I had a bunch of NYE stuff happening!

    Today's NYNGD is an Axis Sport with MM90 pickups finished in a gorgeous Pearl Platinum finish. I purchased this guitar from fellow Knucklehead Johnny Alien in the For Sale thread. This was my first guitar with P90-style pickups, and I spent hours when I first received it just playing with different amp settings and learning how the MM90s responded. There's nothing "fancy" or "special" about this guitar -- it's just a classy looking, great sounding guitar. The Pearl Platinum finish is really beautiful but hard to photograph.











    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...)

    Solid. An excellent, and completely under-rated guitar.

    Damn, Keith. When you put it that way, it's pretty scary. You have me seriously worrying about WTF is wrong with me. I have issues. In all seriousness, I think 2017 will need to be a slimmed down year. Besides the data point you just pointed out, I really am out of space at my studio...

    NOOOOOO!!!!!!

    In addition to your obsession, you also have the best presentation, and writing about your instrument collecting...

    Oh wait..., there's a couple of huge guys dressed in black saying they're from Ernie Ball at the door.
    I'll be right back. I wonder what they could want?
