    NAMM 2018 rumors thread

    So...has anybody heard any juicy details about what we might see at NAMM?

    BP posted a few pics on his FB page the week before Christmas of a new blue color for the Valentine. Haven't seen much else than that.

    I will be purchasing a new EBMM in 2018 and I am really looking forward to what will be offered / I have this thought that the color and shape of a specific guitar - it's overal beauty, tends to lends itself to they way I will play it... A little to much OCD here....

    No rumors here, just a wish list...

    Wish 1: a super-sparkly finish for the Cutlass... like candy-Apple red mega sparkle with white pearl pickguard.

    Wish 2: a hollow body with glassy, filtertron type pickups.


    If either or both are true, there will be some purchases made in 2018!

    Hi all... newly registered on the Boards (though I've been reading for months)... I have been in the market for a EBMM St Vincent for a few months, having missed out on the MASSEDUCTION guitars (I loved them), and wanting to ensure I got a Rosewood neck and fret board. I think they are beautiful guitars and I know they are not everyone's cup of tea, but to each his/her own!

    Anyway, as I was looking at the cycle of products and the MASSIVE year the St Vincent line had with EBMM, I think I am not expecting too many new things? 2017 seemed like an amazing year for so many of the guitar lines, with so much going on... so, I got an amazing deal on Reverb on a brand new black 2016 St Vincent and pulled the trigger on it. All I was looking for were the BFR knobs on the St Vincent (the metal cylinders instead of the plastic cylinders with a triangle base) and some new finishes, but it was not enough to stop me from jumping in on my first EBMM guitar (it arrives on Monday). On the one hand, I hope I'm wrong and I am forced to buy another one but again, I think the STV line got so much press this year, I can't imagine the line being transformed too much.

    It has been fun lurking & reading here and on the Facebook group as I waited as along as I could, but when I saw this deal, I just jumped. Hope NAMM doesn't make me regret it! Then again, I hope it does!

    Thanks for having me... excited to be an EBMM owner! Look forward to seeing the new instruments and configurations!

    At Vai Academy, I asked BP about the 30th anniversary Morse and he said there were pics and info on it in a recent newsletter - but I haven’t seen anything... anybody else know what he was referring to?

    Also, I’m hoping the Mutual Admiration Society CD is for sale at NAMM!

    NAMM 2018 rumors thread

    BP just posted another teaser on his FB of him playing through Lukes rig. Looks to be playing a blue Luke or LIII with a dark fretboard and BLOCK inlays!
