    Cool NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2018-3

    .
    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 #2018-2!

    This is the Christmas edition even though I am a day late -- had a long, great day with my family and decided Photoshop and I weren't spending time editing photos last night! But enjoy the festive colors of this guitar surrounded by holly and Christmas cheer!

    Today's NYNGD represents a collector's triumph! As you may recall, I have been on the lookout for a Luke III from the Cardinal Red Sparkle PDN run. In February, I finally struck gold and found someone selling on Reverb! This guitar is another sparkle masterpiece. The roasted neck is awesome -- and on this LIII I left the pronounced "V" neck profile unmolested (as you know, I have taken the orbital sander to a few Luke's the the past).

    This guitar sounds really warm and beautiful and has seen some time in the recording studio. Doesn't she look amazing?

    I also thought it would be cool to do a group shot with all my Cardinal Red Sparkles -- what a trio!

    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...)

    Cardinal Red is STUNNING. Does this LIII have the larger, SS frets? If so that may be The Ultimate Luke for me right there (by the way, hi, it turns out we're colleagues ).
