    Exclamation NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2017-4

    .
    Welcome to Day 4 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (NYNGD)!

    Thanks for the kind words and comments on yesterday's NYNGD #2017-3!

    When the 2015 Premier Dealer Network (PDN) run was announced, I hated it. Just didn't like the color of the body and the relative lack of figuring on an LIII, Silo, etc, but also didn't like "vintage maple neck" which was a bit brighter and yellower than we're accustomed to from EBMM.

    Well, fast forward a couple years and I saw this one on eBay and it had a rosewood board (but the back of the neck is still the vintage maple). The collector in me couldn't resist and after some negotiating it was done!

    Personally, this isn't one of my favorite sounding EBMM's. It's not particularly resonant and not very loud. Doesn't sound "bad", but it tends to not be the axe you grab for. I was thinking of maybe trying out some Cobalts on it to see if they change the sound -- thoughts?

    The cable company fixed the outage! Photos are back!















    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 great one too as for cobalt try, give a shot to the M-Steel. I love those strings. Bloody expensive if you are willing to switch all your collection but worth a try on that model

    Personally I donīt have any particular opinion on this one... not a Luke guy here...
    Am I wrong or do we still wait for your first Morse?

    I have never been big fan of brownish sunburst finishes at all. That said, that does have an elegant and graceful flow to it!!!

    I have a Y2D from the run and it is a really beautiful looking guitar. Mine really does sound pretty good though . It’s different form my other morses which I like.
