    At the 10:43 mark, Sterling says "this is the block neck Albert?" and proceeds to show off a neck with what looks like a rosewood fingerboard, block inlays, bound neck, flamed maple neck, non-roasted (one of the guys mentions it's one of the few non-roasted they are doing this year).

    20:48, EVH Custom SSS... c'mon guys, please give us an Axis in SSS this year!

    Great video I watched the whole thing really well done.

    I too can’t wait to see the guitar(s)??

    I was lucky enough to have been to the factory for the Open House party back in 2005. Got to meet all the Balls and it was truly a pleasure.

    The factory tour and the party were awesome!!!!!

    I too am intrigued to see what comes of it. I can take or leave Rob Chapman but I can't take or leave any footage of an EBMM factory tour. I always love getting to see an insight as to what is involved in making their amazing instruments.

    Did anyone else spot what, to me, looked like a trans blue Majesty with a natural flamed maple shield, cream pups and cream trem arm tip? Also good to see a mid-build shot of Jason Richardson's signature.

    I've not finished watching it yet so i'm keen to see what else pops up in the footage.

    Props as always to BP & his team for what they develop and produce for us to be a part of.

    Block inlays ALs... interesting. People have been clamouring for more finishes though I guess we got those now. Would love to see what it looks like with that new neck!

    We could also see a 7-string non-JP with a Burl top which I assume is JR's custom Cutlass... SWEET.
    And a GORGEOUS blue Axis. Man that thing was amazing...

    Edit: DAMNIT. I told myself I'd NEVER become one of those fanboys like you see on some FB groups which will remain unnamed. But it's hard to here. That documentary is AWESOME. There's a friggin' Axis with dual soundhole AND a racing stripe! DAAAAAMN...

    They really need to put out a book with all the history of EBMM, the Grills, the charity work, etc. I'd buy it.

    Question is whether it would get a much reading as my Billy Gibbon's "Rock + Roll Gearhead" book, which I recommend EVERYONE get. It's full of ZZ top History, awesome guitars, and awesome custom cars.

    I love their guitars and their customer service has been great to me. This made me appreciate the family and company even more. That was pretty cool.

    I LOVED this !

    When I saw the factory tour I thought it was amazing. However, i was blown away by this video I think it shows the true family value and the awesome work at the EBMM family.

    2 things. I work in IT service optimisation I have used this video on training to show how implementing automation and using skilled crafts can give you an awesome business, If we win the internal company award I will be on stage in Japan with my Armada

    and 2.... the Mr Horsepower that Dudley opened out the box which has been sealed since 2000.... OMG! - Please tell me that will be auctioned off for CLB - I would give my life savings for that guitar. the vault room was INSANE every case with an amazing treasure those EVH's with single coils, and that earthward... It is like paradise.
