    NGD For Meeeeeee

    Yup.

    As I suspected, I've got a bit EBMM crazy...

    If all started with "just the one EVH." In my favorite color, Purple. Which, of course led me to, "Well, I can't very well use this as a daily-player. Especially given the fading issue. It's going to primarily live in the case, and come out during special occasions. So...I'm going to have to get an Axis." Which I found at a local GC. It's every bit the guitar I'd hoped it would be.

    Fast forward a couple of weeks, and I find myself on Reverb. For S&G, I decide to see what they're getting for an EVH there...

    There I find the Trans-Blue...and it's been "marked down." Not cheap. But, as good a price as you'll find for a player-grade. So...sure. Let's do it.

    As I'm talking to the shop I found it at on the phone to discuss safe packing, he tells me they actually purchased an estate-sale, with a bunch of guitars. 3 of which were EBMM EVHs. They sold the Trans-Pink in less than 30 minutes after listing it, sold me the Trans-Blue, and had a Trans-Red they had yet to list...

    "Can you send me some pics?"

    That, was that. So...my GAS has subsided.

    Except I know of a Trans-Purple HT in excellent condition, with what looks like *no* fading, for sale.

    I could be in trouble.

    Here're the new adoptions.

    I originally thought the Red was a Flame Turns out it's a unique looking Quilt. The Blue has the prerequisite fade-to-kinda-Aqua going on.

    I have no complaints.

    ...Purple Hardtail you say?

    Oh...it *is.* they're my "Corvette." My Credit is on life-support now. But...you don't often get a second-chance. How many "Imwish I'd pulled the trigger," or "i shouldn't have passed" posts do we read?

    I've seen them come and go over the years. I saw deals, and chose to swing. And...if I regret it, or *have* to flip them, I can get what I paid. So, I went a little overboard.

    ...like a kid in a candy shop.

    Going overboard may be the best feeling of all!! =)

    ..and like you said, you can always flip them or sell them as they are very fine instruments never losing their value. Especially if they remain well-kept. Again, congratulations and happy melting them =D

    Lovely guitars! The red reminds me of the "boat wake" 20th Anniversary Silo that somebody here had.

    It *would* "round out" the collection. I have a friend that's teasing me and serving up the "rainbow challenge."
