    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2017-3

    .
    Welcome to Day 3 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (NYNGD)!

    Alright, we're rolling now! Thanks for the kind words and comments on yesterday's #2017-2!

    Today's NYNGD represents a collector's triumph! As you may recall, in 2014 I purchased a Blue Dawn Axis and here's what I said in that NYNGD: "So... as you can imagine, when I purchased this I THOUGHT that I had found an LE2007 Blue Dawn Axis from the special LE run that was done that year. I had no idea that Blue Dawn had been offered as a standard color in 2002 (and not sure how many years it was available). I had assumed it was a special color specifically for the LE2007 run, just like Black&Gold was the LE2006 run and Sequoia Gold was the LE2008 run. BAH... Do your research, you fool! (Jeff smacks his own forehead) I didn't even think to look for the LE2007 inlay at the 12th fret. So... in my Guitar Gallery, rather than taking its place right between the LE2006 Black&Gold and the LE2008 Sequoia Gold, this guy is instead stationed next to its cousin, the Burnt Apple Axis."

    And then I said, "Anybody have an LE2007 Blue Dawn Axis you're looking to get rid of? "

    Well, in 2017 I located one that, basically, was a case queen and is 100% mint. Here she is! What an awesome color. And I don't care what any of you says -- the 12th fret inlay kicks ass and shouldn't have been discontinued! This LE2007 Blue Dawn Axis plays great, looks great, and is one I am really happy to have located!

    So... Anybody interested in buying a 2002 non LE2007 Blue Dawn Axis???
















    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's a nice find, Jeff. Love that guitar.
    I believe every guitar player inherently has something unique about their playing. They just have to identify what makes them different and develop it. EVH

    Ooooh. I always wanted one of those, but I came to EBMM a year too late. Gorgeous. If you ever want to part with it ...

    Interesting, too, the difference between the sparkle between this one and the 2002.

    I found it on eBay. It's a lapsed Knucklehead.

    Nah... The sparkles are the same. Just my subpar photography skills. I don't recall how I took the photo of the old one. When I took the photo of the LE2007 the other night, I couldn't capture the sparkle in the shot and eventually said F'it.
