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

Thanks for the kind words and comments on NYNGD #2019-9!

Alright, folks. Day #10. We're approaching the finish line. Let's get to it!

Ummmmm... these BFRs will be the death of my bank account. Each one is more stunning than the last! This one, in Charred Silver sparkle is a good example of what I'm saying. Just killer. The ebony fretboard without fret dots and with the abalone runway stripes is awesome. This guitar has a rounder, fuller sound than my other Majesties -- not sure why as the specs are the same as other mahogany Majesties. I could see this guy on stage at some point, and I've already recorded a few things with it.

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...)

That one is really doing it for me. Funny, I haven't been drawn to the Majesty, but that finish changes everything. Outstanding!

Man, I had a Vintage Sunburst Morse Y2D with an AWESOME quilt top, Floyd Rose, stunning guitar. And I hated it. The body is too big maybe? Or maybe the neck. (Honestly, I don't recall why I hated it but that it just didn't feel good to me). One of the very few EBMMs I have ever sold (like, maybe 2 or 3 total sold). Here it is:

Absolutely killer. I love all my EBMMs, but my Majesties are my favorite. I love that finish on yours!

This is my favorite of the year so far. Wowza! The whole package is perfect, but the combo of the fretboard and the finish color are amazing together.

Edit:Is that Quarter Sawn ebony with grain rays the I see????

If I had to pick a majesty as my main guitar, I think it would be that iteration. I'm not usually a sparkle finish guy, but damn. And the blacked out neck with strips is subtle and classy. Love it.

I love that finish and understated spec combination, esp. the mahogany body and ebony board with no dots. Great score!
