    Hi Guys! New MM owner just saying Hello

    Hi guys, I recently bought my first EBMM guitar!

    I'm from around Toledo, Ohio and I had never even seen a MM guitar in person in around here. I have been hearing a lot about the Valentine Model on some podcasts I listen to and decided to check it out. I have to admit I'm not really a Maroon 5 fan and had no idea who James Valentine was, but I loved the specs on the guitar. So I decided to give one a try.

    I found a blemished (aka customer return) model on Zzounds and pulled the trigger. After a very disappointing experience with the retailer (no fault of EBMM) and having the guitar properly setup, I was completely blown away.

    Not only is the guitar impeccably well built, all of the little touches add up to a tremendous guitar at any price much less a sub $2,500 guitar. What an amazing neck! I can't believe they are this good. Not only does it play beautifully, it is just stunning to look at. "figured roasted maple" is an understatement.

    Hats off to everyone at EBMM, your dedication to your craft comes through in every little detail.

    My only complaint is I have a feeling this is going to get expensive.

    I completely agree. I could not figure out how to upload them on my laptop. I had to log in to Tapatalk.

    Here you go.

    That neck is simply absurd. Almost Makes me wish I would have waited for the RS model cutlass. Something special you got there.
