    Thanks guys, will definitely post more pics when it arrives. I was looking at getting a new Tele and started to do some research remembering what great guitars EBMM makes. It's amazing how this beauty just flies under the radar. I guess EBMM sort of does in a way. The Valentine is an incredible instrument for sure. I'm betting this won't be my last EBMM either. I actually got a brand new Holeyboard DragonFly and Strymon Zuma power to redo my board too. This is my moving back to CA present. lol.

    Glad to be a part of the family.

    Congrats and welcome to the family! And welcome back to CA.

    Impressive first post that demonstrates that you have studied the forum culture: pics of the new EBMM guitar before it has actually arrived! Looking forward to more photos after arrival -- that is if you can put that beauty down long enough to snap some photos.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks! Yes, I'm moving back to San Diego where I was born and raised. Can't wait. Actually moving back to work on a kids tv show I am developing with a couple of producers. When I saw this guitar I had to have it. Was so close to getting a Telecaster Elite, but this was like such an intriguing guitar. Always loved EBMM anytime I jammed on one. Kind of surprised it took me this long to get one.

    Sweetwater sent me their pics of the guitar as soon as it came in. They only got 1, so I was happy that my rep had reserved one for me. Kind of fun waiting on your guitar to be made. Like a custom shop guitar, but not the custom shop price tag. Always looked at EBMM as like custom shop guitars.

    Where in CA are you? Rock on!

    I definitely agree with you on the custom shop comment. With some other manufacturers, you do have to go with their custom shop lines to find the same craftsmanship and quality that is standard on every EBMM.

    The TV show development sounds exciting. Between that, a return home, and a new Valentine, I hope 2017 is a great year for you!

    Sweet, and thank you. Yeah, we have worked our tails off on this show. We have been to Burbank quite a few times and needed to be closer to LA to work with some other people. Here's a link to our deck if you want to check it out. It's a really fun show to be part of. Yep, 2017 is going to be a great year. Plus, I'm a surfer and I'm chomping at the bit to get back in the CA waves.

    Well, there is that initiation ceremony with the masks, the paddles and the peanut butter, but you'll find out about that eventually.

    Seriously, though, welcome aboard and congrats on the new guitar. The neck on that thing is gorgeous, and the roasted necks are awesome to play.

    lol, nice, I will be ready. Yeah, the necks on EBMM are generally pretty amazing. I found this Valentine an amazing guitar all around. So blessed to be joining the club.

    How are the stock 11s working out for you? i play Cobalt 9s generally, and wondered if 11s would be too much of a transition. What do you normally use?
    Sweet piece btw.
