    Cool NYNGD #4: New Year New Guitar Days!

    Hi everyone! Thanks again for all the cool posts on NYNGD #1, #2 and #3! To clear up one misunderstanding that I saw from yesterday: I did not just buy these guitars in the past week -- I accumulated a few in the past year and realized I had neglected to add them to my Guitar Gallery site. So since I have a new PDN coming (which arrived yesterday and is MIND BLOWING), I thought it would be fun to NGD each of these leading up to the NGD of the PDN!

    So, let's get on with another belated NGD: NYNGD (New Year's New Guitar Day) Number 4!

    Today we have another Silhouette Classic Reissue, this time in Translucent Purple:










    Ahhh. Translucent Purple. Ahhh.

    The color on these just rocks -- it's so bold that it grabs your attention, yet it isn't gaudy. This is another guitar that just WORKS... feels amazing and sounds killer!

    I'll be back tomorrow with another NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Day! Thanks for joining me on this journey!

    (P.S. The first photo is the "official" Music Man glamour shot, not mine.)

    Admire your Silos. I had to go pull my Silo out and play it after seeing yours. I hadn't played it in a while, but I couldn't put it down. Thanks for sharing.

    @acwild: That's a good analogy. It does look like a lolly pop or, even better, a Jolly Rancher -- you can JUST make out the grain through the translucent finish, so it kind of looks like a see-thru candy!

    @Smelly: Actually, I am unemployed right now from the day job. Long f'ing story about Corporate America evil... So I'm focusing on music and my family a lot lately.

    Hmmmm. Sounds like we have a battle brewing between the PBB and the Purple! Who will win?!? Purple, methinks.

    Yeah, @wolfbone07. Silo's (especially 24 fret Floyd Silos) are the sh!t. Hands down. Like I said, by beat up black one is still my #1 guitar (out of approx 70).


    Thanks for all the feedback everyone! More NYNGD goodness tomorrow!
