    Yup...OLP = "Official Licensed Products" if I remember correctly.
    Pretty nice guitars for cheap!

    Exactly - it's not Music Man. It's a licensed copy from OLP. Some loved them, some not so much.

    2007 Bahama Blue Sparkle Back BFR Luke (GC Exclusive)

    I had an OLP MM1F in natural that I really liked, and actually regret selling. It's not an EBMM or even an SBMM, though. The neck carve on mine was very different from my Axis, and there was really no comparison. Still not a bad little guitar (or at least mine wasn't) if you can get it on the cheap.
    My stuff:
    2007 Axis Pacific Blue Burst (9/25/07)
    2016 Axis Super Sport Starry Night PDN (11/23/16)
    2010 JP6 Mystic Dream (6/22/10)
    1989 Fender HM Strat HSS Blackstone
    2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Caribbean Night
    1995 Washburn N2 Padauk Stain
    2017 Taylor 224ce-K DLX Koa
    SBMM JP70 Trans Purpleburst
    SBMM S.U.B. SB4 Black

    OLP as mentioned.

    Not a Music Man.

    Not a Sterling by Music Man.

    Not a bad guitar, but make sure the price is in line with what it is (i.e. you should not be paying Music Man or Sterling by Music man prices).
