    Praise for Sir Valentine and his groovy axe!

    I must admit I had never heard of James Valentine before the EB guitar was released, but I'm glad this man was born. The Valentine is a TONE MONSTER. If you are looking for a non-strat sound guitar with the most stellar clean tones on earth.... seriously, check out the Valentine. I'll probably order a second from Pete before too long (if a couple of things line up before then).

    I have a strat for when I want a strat sound, but when I want to cover ALL the other bases, this guitar is top notch. It is SOOOO spanky with completely rich tones. Kudos to the artist and EBMM for designing a truly gorgeous and unique guitar.

    I love that white special edition model. I'd really love to get one of those too, but things have to sort of fall into place before I can spring for that.

    Gassing as well. Is it me, or do the roasted necks show the flame/birdseye more than usual?

    The Birdseye definitely shows up more on the roasted maple necks. That neck and how it's finish feels is what made me HAVE to buy that instrument. I've never played such an incredibly smooth and beautiful guitar neck before. Looks and feels amazing. Non roasted versions have nothing on it.

    I have a Trans Black one and am about to sell my 2 strats to finance a cream one. Absolutely awesome guitar.
    Thanks James.
