    Cool NYNGD: New Year's New Guitar Days! NYNGD #2018-10

    Welcome to Day 10 of my annual New Year's New Guitar Days (NYNGD)!

    Thanks for the kind words and comments on NYNGD #2018-9!

    Alright, folks. Day #10. Guitar #13. As you know, I usually try to build up to a big finale, and the guitars start ramping up in awesomeness. You could say that this guitar represents me lighting the fuse, because the next 10 days of guitars is pretty explosive! One last "tame" guitar before we turn up the heat. And, how appropriate for fuse lighting than Firemist Purple. That's right, this LIII just arrived before the 12/31 cutoff to be included in my 2018 NYNGD.

    She's pretty sweet. An LIII in Firemist Purple, with a roasted maple neck, rosewood fretboard, and black hardware. This guy doesn't have a fancy quilt maple top or flashy sparkle, but it's a got really subtle but cool pearlescent finish. Honestly, I am not a fan of the matte black hardware (especially since the tuners and knobs are not matte but gloss black), but it does look pretty sleek. This guitar sounds really bright and cuts well! Since it's only a couple weeks new, it hasn't really been played more than 10 minutes yet. But, in due time...

    I thought the matte black neckplate was a particularly cool feature so I included a photo of that. I tried to capture the Firemist Purple in the final shot, but this finish is really one you need to see in person -- photos can't pull it off. What do you think -- does the purple work for you?!?

    I'll be back tomorrow-ish 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...)

    I don't dislike the color, but it's definitely not one I'd be likely to own. It's just not me. Doesn't mean I can't admire that Luke for what it is, though!

    I missed this! I love the flame on the back of the neck. Amazing color. Agree about the black hardware, though.

    Sorry. Been a hectic week at work. I actually love the Firemist Luke and hate you for posting it because now I'm GASing for one in HH config to compliment my HSS Bohdi Blue LIII.

    Cool axe. Love the figuring on the neck.

    I love LIIIs, but have a complicated relationship with purple. I kinda like purple on guitars, but never enough to buy one. But I do love sparkle/pearl in the finish!
