    Thanks for the share! Personally I'm a huge fan of everything made by EBMM but I'm such a newbie that my eyes sparkle at every model and make you have. With only 2 EBMM- I am wishing for my next one to be acquired soon. 🎸

    Sorry for the late update, as I've said in the guitar thread I've been unable to access a computer for the last week, so in order to make up for missing last week's post you guys get a double post!

    I have two companions to the orange Cutlass that was posted a few weeks ago, these were originally set up with Seymour Duncan's and were reverted back to our stock pups, and originally only featured one volume knob. They both feature roasted necks, but of different maple varieties. You can tell these apart from any other Cutlass by the black headstocks.

    I, predictably, am in love with the green one. Of course, green basses don't sell, I know this now.

    I'm in love with it too. Actually, I'm in love with both.

    Taking the thread in a different direction today, this is NOT an EBMM product, but it is however part of the EBMM legacy. Earthwood basses have been highly sought after due to their relative rarity and deep resonant sound. Here we have a gen 2, Dan Norton refined the original design that was made by Ernie and George Fullerton, late of Fender. The Gen 2 features a narrower body, improved bridge and binding, and does not come equipped with a pick/tap guard.

    Thanks, Casey!

    I have one exactly like that, except no neck or headstock binding. And a lot more wear. (And someone replaced the wood trussrod cover with black plastic.)

    So are *all* the ones with the narrower/shallower body and no pickguard gen 2? Someone sprayed the entire inside of mine with some kind of pink textured coating, presumably to dampen resonance, so the label and serial # are unreadable. I have no idea what vintage it is.

    I also have a 6-string Earthwood guitar, #574, supposedly from '72. That one has all the binding and a dark wood pickguard.
