    NGD: ASS HH trans gold

    I have a new family member.

    After having played and loved a 1999 ASS HH trans gold from 2004 to 2013 (my first really good guitar), I somehow got distracted by my other Balls, and stupidly sold it.

    Already one year later I got a great deal on my red AS HSS, and it felt so good. Immediately I started missing that ASS.

    Since the new owner, user Black Bird, wouldn't sell it back to me, I began searching for an ASS HH and recently was lucky enough to find one fine example in France in mint condition for a decent price, even in trans gold.

    Feels like I'm home again

    Even we mancave noodlers can appreciate the perfection that is an EBMM guitar.

    Thanks, guys.
    To me it seems, the Axis resp. EvH Sig. was designed for or with that finish in mind, it just looks so natural.
    Remember when Van Halen's F.U.C.K. came out in 1991? In the CD booklet on the last page there is a trimmed pic of an EvH guitar, and although it is a b/w picture, the color might be trans gold quilt. Quickly after this reviews popped up in German music magazines and very often they showed them in trans gold. Since then that color is tightly connected to that guitar for me.
