    What does 'grain filled mahogany' mean? Is it really just a trans-black burst mahogany? Or is the grain actually filled with something?

    If EBMM is doing it like another firm I know of (the other company calls their version "dog hair") then it is white pore filler with a translucent black finish over it.

    It has a nice look to it. I am used to seeing other guitar companies do this with swamp ash. I like seeing the wood grain through the finish.

    I completely love the specs for this. If I didn't have a fairly new L3 I would be all over this.

    Man I have to bump this again.

    Any news about this one?

    Release date?

    Toto is coming an hour away in June and I have front row seats. Steve says this one is already his number 1. Man I'm pumped.

    Soo... Anyone placed an order yet? I'm a bit hesitant due to the painted neck but knowing EBMM the neck will be awesome
