So I got the Quilt top one from Slav and pretty much straight away the BFR came up and I couldn't resist. I should really sell the other two but they each have their own unique character.
    I love all three, but that BFR is my #1 pick of the bunch.

    2017 StingRay 5 - 30th Ann
    2013 Luke III - PDN - emerald green sparkle
    - rosewood neck
    2012 Morse - BFR - Dark Lord
    2010 Axis SS - red flame - rosewood neck
    2009 Axis - pink quilt
    2006 StingRay fretless - 30th Ann

    I'm a long time lurker and did not post very much so far (not at all to be exact )
    But here's another one for the gallery. I own this guitar since the 25th was released. This is also the only EBMM guitar I have and it's one of the best of my stable. EBMM fooled themselfs with this model, because it's so perfect that I don't need another EBMM guitar!

    Jimmy even as much as that AL is smoking your baby puts all those EB's to shame= Congrats!

    Don't have a good pic handy but my 25th will never go anywhere.

    I just brought home a NOS 25th Anniversary Guitar!

    Honestly, I kinda' stumbled into it. Started guitar shopping, and played a guitar that I thought was the Axis. Came back to the store intending to buy it, then realized it was a 25th Anniversary.

    This is the first time I had ever seriously looked at any EBMM guitar or bass. My NOS guitar was priced to sell on clearance. GC really wanted it out. I'm only now realizing I've stumbled into quite a find!

    My previous guitar was an Ibanez S from 1994. Very nice guitar, but this 25th Anniversary is obviously in a different league.

    My serial number is G47627. Don't know what -- if anything -- that indicates about the guitar.

    BTW, my axe has a maple neck and non-floating vibrato bar. I got a few questions about using this guitar optimally, esp. regarding the 5-pickup setting and the parallel / series toggle. I'll look around the forum and website for awhile before asking much.

    Cheers,

    Welcome to the addiction Joe. I used to be a big Ibanez fan but bought an early Petrucci when JP switched camps, then...well just look at my signature line.

    The 25th is a sweet axe. I have a maple/trem. I would suggest letting the bridge float just a little. Mine has maybe a half step up available and it will still Drop D without going crazy. Also is insanely stable tuning-wise. Mine also has the best unplugged sustain of any guitar I own hands down. Go out and have a bite to eat and she'll still be singing.

    I will tell you that I've found that pickup positions 2&3 on my axe, are pretty similar. Difficult to tell the difference unless you have a pretty clean amp setting with high's available. I also think it's a very unique voiced guitar, I don't really try to compare it to anything else. Let it be itself.

    Another great thing about the axe is the tone knob is very usable. This is especially cool since the bridge humbucker is a little brighter than most, which is cool, but with the tone knob it really gives you a whole 'nother voice.

    Careful Joe, my first was also a 25th that I stumbled upon. I now own 10. If I could only own 1, and was a gigging musician, it would be my 25th. You'll figure out the diversity. Congrats.

    A couple of questions:

    - Is there anything like an owners manual or web page about owning and maintaining this particular guitar?

    - What strings do you guys use?

    - What do you do to polish / keep up the fit and finish?

    - Do you use the vibrato / tremolo bar? If so, how well does the guitar stay in tune? (I ask because initially I was looking for a hard tail guitar, having gotten wary of vibrato bar hassles.)

    - What roughly was the the street price of the 25h anniversary guitar when it first came out?

    - Is there a group or web page for us... or is this thread the closest thing to that ?

    Cheers,
    - Joe

    I don't think there's an "owners manual" per se
    I use regular EB 10's...YMMV
    Most recently I've used the EBMM polish but I've used other stuff guitar polishes and they work just fine
    My vibrato floats just a little. Up a 1/2 step. Stays in tune ludicrously well. I do a couple EVH tunes with big dive bombs (Ice Cream Man). No problem. I DO put graphite on the nut when I change strings with all my guitars.
    No idea the price

    I was wondering if there is a was to just get one coil of the neck pickup redirected to one of the 5-way lever positions. That way, you would be able to get a more strat-ish sound. Any ideas?

    Time to resurrect this thread. I know there are some newer members out there with a 25th to add here. Here's mine... love it.
