    Really? 12 years since I got my first EBMM - still feel like a kid in a candy store

    I haven't picked up this guitar in a long time (probably close to 5 years) and man have I missed it! I feel inspired every time I pick up this guitar. This happens to be the first EBMM that I bought for myself back in the fall of 2005. After I purchased it I immediately sent it off to EBMM for their repair shop to go through & seal the neck, buff the body, and replace a few parts that had tarnished.

    When a few other cases get piled in front it got out of the rotation and was in dire need of some TLC - seriously tarnished frets, a fairly dry fingerboard, and rusty non-eb strings. At least I had remembered to take out the battery... The neck plate was also showing some tarnish.

    Today I decided to get to work on the guitar & bring it back into the rotation, so I removed the strings & neck plate. Of course when removing the neck plate the neck will come loose, and to my surprise there was a note written in the neck pocket for me, by a former EBMM employee!


    My fully loaded Blue Dawn JP6 from the initial run back in June 2001

    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    How beautiful is that note!
    Haven't read about the "sealed necks" from the repair shop for a while. Guess it's not done anymore?

    Sure thing, the image gallery is here:

    While the word "sparkle" is not in the official color name, it was offered alongside the official "sparkle" colors and has a decent amount of flake in it that pops under bright light.
