    I'd like to call out the fact that the CEO of a commercial company just gave us sales info, on a forum, to explain business strategy.
    That is something I've never seen before. Thanks BP. Perspective is always useful, especially at this level.

    Not yet. Work has been crazy and I am also opening my own guitar store. I’m thinking with the 3 I want, the best bet will be used. I love the Game Changers but if the app no longer works or will be updated, then I can’t really do with the guitar what I want to do. With all of the price increases, it’s going to also be a little more difficult for me to now buy new. I understand the companies reasons because the Governor in California is making it almost impossible for businesses to survive out there but hopefully, I can have success with my music store opening up and that will allow me to also purchase more EBMM guitars and basses for my personal stuff and also hopefully buy in as an EBMM dealer too. To help the EBMM brand grow is really the whole reason why I want to get my store opened. I have a passion for the company and want to do whatever I can to get for EBMM guitars and basses into more peoples hands.

    Just to let everyone know. I'm a longtime EBMM player. Bought my Sterling fretless in 1994 -- amazing axe. I have wanted an Albert Lee Tremolo in pinkburst for years. Finally I had the coin to do it. But I couldn't find one anywhere! I called EBMM customer service back in January, asking about inventory because none of the usual shops had the AL in stock. They got back to me a couple days later. The last two pinkburst ALs were due to ship out, first one to Missouri and the second to Indiana a couple weeks after. I called the Indiana shop and reserved it. It is on the way to me now. So I think I got the last pinkburst AL until they start that color run again. Point is, call or email EBMM customer service. They DO come through.

    That's awesome. I was a little bummed that color was going away. I really didn't like it or the AL when I first came around here, but both had grown on me enough that one was on my list, but I'm not in a position to do it right now. Glad you found your guitar!

    As mentioned earlier in this thread, I got what I think is the last Albert Lee SSS Pinkburst out of the SLO factory. Absolutely gorgeous pinkburst with tremolo and off-the-charts flame maple neck. MM advertised price $1749, and that's what I paid. Shout out to Upper Bout in Champagne IL. Great folks to deal with, straight shooters and very nice!!! Point being, this particular AL SSS on Reverb is sweet but no trem, and $400 more than I paid for a brand new one with warranty.

    I'll post pics of my new AL within a couple days.
