    Seeing a lot of buckeye burl in the industry lately. Definitely an interesting looking wood, though honestly I'm a bit fan of a nice piece of alder or ash.

    EBMM - a guitar like no other.
    Even we mancave noodlers can appreciate the perfection that is an EBMM guitar.

    Can anyone tell if that is a Valentine in that blurred photo for the April BFR's? I'm also trying to guess what that finish could possibly be. Only curious because I'm looking at getting a Valentine, but wonder if I should just wait until April.

    Thanks! I was guessing it was the middle one, and in Spalted Maple (but didnt know what it was called).

    That sunburst Valentine is also very nice looking. It reminds me of my first guitar.

    The Valentine in April is a three-tone burst, with bound neck.
