    I love how small EBMM is but I still think they should do endorsements for the publicity/exposure. Being exposed and ramping up production are two different. The more people get interested in the company and the fewer instruments they make, the more of an "insider company" they become (which I love)

    If I am going to get a Signature model, I usually like it to be one that is from an artist that has worked with the same company for years, and built a relationship. I would want something that isn't just a name slapped on a slightly customized model.

    When an endorser moves from company to company all the time *cough*EVH*cough* it really says they are more about the $$$ than about the guitar. And of course, in many of those cases, you get what is essentially a tribute model, not the same thing that they actually play. They also are guitars MADE to play. Some have some interesting features, but they are thought out with the player in mind.

    With EBMM, they are what they use. High quality and long term endorsements. And they make a product that can stand up to Steve Morse's touring for 15 refrets.

    What you get now though is a lot of companies that are starting off, and they offer the moon to whatever player the can get their hands on. I've never really understood this type of philosophy. Ultimately it's the product that sells itself, not the endorser.

    I saw this year back when Tyler Bryant fresh out of high school was a promising EBMM artist and then was lured away by Fender. like all industries there are non-ethical practices. I am proud that EBMM always try to do the right thing with the resources they available to them.

    During these times where larger companies have an uncertain future and the overall market shrinks I think it's critical to stick to your founding principles and always try to do the right thing.

    Thank you BP and the team.

    Tyler was a bit frustrating....we were there for him for many years when nobody knew who he was We gave him opportunities to raise his profile and fender lured him away...but he didnt have to go I read his wikipedia and it says that Eric Clapton invited hiim to play crossroads...not true we were a sponsor and got him he invite revisionist history Obviously he wanted what Fender wanted. Thats the way the cookie crumbles. No hard feelings.

    Sterling, my whole reason for wanting to start a store but have it mainly feature Ernie Ball Music Man and Sterling by Music Man was really for one purpose. To help grow and further both the Ernie Ball brand and Music Man brand. I really don’t have the desire to carry other brands because I want to only grow the EBMM brands and they are the only brands that I am passionate about. But until the store is ready and I can then sign my contract, what else can I do to help promote and grow both brands? I don’t want any money or special privileges, I just want to do whatever I can to help you guys because everyone at EBMM has been so good to both my family and I.

    I don’t care if you need me to talk with other stores or potential retail stores, assist any endorsed artists coming through Colorado or whatever it is. Just let me know how I can help further and promote the brands.

    Sterling, I want your guitars to have a bigger footprint in the UK, but I’m not a recording artist. Is there anything I can do as a bedroom playing bum to help? I know the answer is probably no, but figured I’d ask.
    My friend runs a guitar shop locally - what could I say to him to get him on board?
