    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2017-1

    .
    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 2018! I usually run this so the Grand Finale falls on New Years Eve -- let's see if I can stay on track!

    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!

    The first one is a guitar that, technically, belonged in the Class of 2016 but it was left back... This beautiful 1994 Translucent White (a/k/a Butterscotch a/k/a Mary Kaye) Silhouette arrived last year basically looking like the previous owner wanted a matte finish so he used Scotch Brite pads on the finish. Really, I don't think he was going for matte -- I think he was just a jackass who ruined an amazing guitar (and then didn't disclose that on his Reverb listing). So... after complaining and getting some money back, I sent this to the factory to be refinished with a fresh coat of poly. And she was gone during the photo sessions for last year's NYNGD. So... left back!

    This guitar is pretty sweet. Really warm sound, great sustain. I replaced the hurting aftermarket pickups that came with it with a fresh set of DiMarzios -- a PAF Pro in the bridge and two True Velvet single coils -- one of my few guitars in HSS format. Of course, a floating Floyd Rose, completes the goodness. I'm not sure how many Silos were sold in Trans White, but I have never seen another one in all my travels. Anyone?















    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...)
