    Discontinued Music Man list. October 31. 2015

    Hello fellow Knuckleheads,

    Below is the list of our models and finishes that will be discontinued 10-31-15. We are streamlining our current roster to make room for all the new guitars and basses we have coming out. There have been some teasers and tidbits leaking out through social, so keep an eye out. Two new guitar models in October?? We couldn't be more excited for the future!

    Phew! So no more Reflex and Big Al? That makes me sad.
    Can't say the same about the piezo basses, however, I assume many customers will be disappointed.

    Sad, sad news.

    Just to confirm what this means....you're saying that, for instance, the Bongo 5H will still be available but just not in the colours indicated?

    And piezo will no longer be an option for any Bongos? Or is it just that no configuration of piezo Bongos will be available in the colours indicated?

    Are you coming out with new colours for some of the models? Just wondering as, for instance, after you eliminate the colurs indicated the Sterling 5HS would only be available in 5 colours (black, stealth black, white, vintage sunburst and natural).

    Just want to make sure I'm interpreting this correctly.

    Also, while I'm not really heartbroken about the Reflex, I find it surprising that the Big Al bass is going away. I had one for a while and really liked that one!

    THanks!

    And piezo will no longer be an option for any Bongos? Or is it just that no configuration of piezo Bongos will be available in the colours indicated? No piezo will be available for the Bongo line. The colors listed will be discontinued.

    Are you coming out with new colours for some of the models? Just wondering as, for instance, after you eliminate the colurs indicated the Sterling 5HS would only be available in 5 colours (black, stealth black, white, vintage sunburst and natural). There will be a few new colors. 6 total finishes will be available on the Stingray / Sterling line.

    The reason we are discontinuing finishes is so we can streamline what we are selling vs. what we are offering. These finishes represent a small percentage of what we actually make. Discontinuing these various finishes / models provides us flexibility for future models and custom runs. It has become impossible to stock and offer so many body models, finishes, and pick guards. In the near future you will see many different shapes, sizes, and features on multiple guitars and basses!

    So sorry but that list causes more confusion than anything.

    We can't see which models are terminated entirely.

    Can you annotate with "colors that are left", if any?

    Everything we discontinued was a valid choice...in the end the customers voted with their dollar and didnt buy the stuff.
    Two requests, please
    Please contact customer service prior to posting instrument issues
    Please don't PM me
    Thanks

    Please dont add me as a friend on facebook....my life is an open book here as it is.

    Thus it has always been. Big Poppa will tell you how I felt about the crazy sparkle finishes (and one color that reminded some of baby poop) but if customers don't buy them, that's the market speaking.

    I, for one, welcome our NEW DIFFERENT SHAPES SIZES AND FEATURES OVERLORDS!!

    Although many of us are saddened by the discontinued lines, I think we should all remember how much we benefit from EBMM being a healthy and sound company. I am all about good, market driven, business decisions even if they are a little uncomfortable.

    Not questioning that at all, I never doubted that these were smart, market-driven decisions. I will be sorry to see the Big Al go, but again, happy I have mine. Same for the piezo Bongo. And I am very interested to see what comes next.

    I'm excited for the future models and grateful I had the opportunity to own some of the soon-to-be discontinued models. The market speaks and only foolish companies (or governments) don't listen.
