    It is KBaim! Very kind offer. BTW, I still have your demo CD from years ago when I bought my first Luke 2 and you sent it so I could hear the tones!

    There were 3 I was planning on purchasing this year. 2 you technically still make but were changed. A JP6 in mystic dream w/piezo. I actually found 3 still available. I like the chrome hardware and tuners pre 2018. The next is a Stingray 4H in black with a maple fretboard. I’m not opposed to the new one with the roasted neck as I love those and the last and probably my biggest priority is the Game Changer HSH with piezo and tremolo bridge. I bought another one last year to replace my first one that I had to sell a few years back. When the 30th Anniversary Stingray 5 was announced, I returned it to order the 30th Anniversary but planned on buying another one this year.

    I appreciate all you guys do BP and also appreciate the offer. The entire reason why I want to get my store opened is to sell EBMM guitars and basses more than any other brand. I understand why you guys are having to do what you’re doing. My frustration lies more with the stores I have visited not having product knowledge and having an attitude of the customer already knows what they want. All we need to do is ring up their sale. To me, that is lazy and no way to build a customer relationship. I think it was in February, a customer was checking out a Classic. He didn’t know a lot about it so I educated him and told him about EBMM. As a result, he ended up buying the Classic. Then in September, same situation. I went to buy my Bongo 5HH in barolo metallic purple and roasted neck. Another guy is playing an Old Smoothie. Salesman again can’t answer questions. I did and the guy bought the Old Smoothie. How many other people just at that store were potential future customers of EBMM? Seeing that pisses me off and now hopefully, if I am able to come on as a dealer, I can sell more guitars and basses for EBMM and help grow the brand.

    BP, again I really do appreciate all you and everyone at the company does. I also understand everything you are saying but because you may have someone saving up for a year in some cases to buy an EBMM guitar or bass, and as far as they know, the instrument will be available after they have saved up. Why not in that final month when orders can be placed for the current model year instruments and or finishes a post be made and dealers informed that says, “Hey, we are thinking of discontinuing this color on this instrument or we are thinking of discontinuing this model so if anyone wants one, orders for them need to be placed by X date.” That way, those that are saving up can place an order, pay a deposit and then have 5 or 6 months to save up for it knowing it may be going away.

    If there are reasons that you can’t, then I understand but it is just an idea I thought I would share.

    Is that the black one?

    I need to get some strings. Maybe I'll stop by on Monday and take a photo of it.

    I have indeed contacted customer support, As of an hour ago, Billy@EBMM replied via email stating "Unfortunately, no dealers have that in stock."

    Attempting to purchase an Albert Lee in Pink Burst SSS with tremolo with matching headstock. Thanks again BP!

    Regards,

    I will have one of those without matching headstock in stock soon.

    there has to be a deadline there is never a good way to do this stuff...what baffles me is that this forum has become so focused on unintended slights and not one post about the amazing stuff that replaced it....

    When I eventually learn to play bass I want a 2018 stingray. That sunburst with 2 pickups - that’s the one
    I’m a little guy so the weight reduction appeals greatly.
    Trem valentine is next up tho

    If the Luke 25th is still a possibility, even if distant, I could be persuaded to wait and go that route instead. The purple is nice but I'm of the firm belief all Lukes should be blue! Carbon Blue on my old Luke 2 and Neptune Blue on my III PDN!
