    if EBMM had a custom shop...

    what would you order?
    I'd go for: Y2D with JP6 trem, & a majesty with no inlays and no carbon shovel inlay

    Interesting question for the fun of it, but I still think that this makes very little sense. For me, all of their current options are great, with the exception of maybe adding fret materials/shapes, neck wood options, and figured tops options. I have the feeling that in a few years they will completely crossover to roasted maple and all-rosewood necks.

    All I really want is an all-white silhouette with a roasted maple neck. Certainly wouldn't need a custom shop, just the neck wood option.

    why do you need a custom shop when the regular run is already top notch?

    each guitar is perfect as it is and when Joe Bonamassa customize a Y2D it's very close to the original or recently John Mayer asking for an EVH

    Keep in mind you still have the limited run that can feed your appetite for new guitars

    Black majesty and replace the carbon fiber inlay with Ruby Redburst Quilt maple bookmatched to look like flames firing out the back of the guitar.

    well yeah, the options they have are fine if you happen to like the options.
    but you're right, a lot of what I'd personally be interested in is relatively minor. neck and tremolo issues, etc...Y2D's are my favorite (the neck and body), but I use regular tremolos a lot (but not Floyd's)

    Y2d with jp6 trem. Full rosewood neck with stainless steel frets.

    I'd also get it loaded with transitions and a piezo pickup.

    And it would be in purple sparkle or purple sunset.
