    I've also bought many ebmm models before playing them and in addition to the excellent quality control you can count on the fact that they all share that ebmm neck DNA. The way the necks feel and the comfortable dimensions of the necks are a shared trait between the models. The shapes vary but the feel is always the same. You simply can't go wrong.

    I gave my eldest son a really nice Axis several years ago and I told him that I've played most of the brands and that the ebmms are the best you can get. Years later, he plays Hendrix and SRV perfectly so he naturally wanted a Strat. Until he played one. Hahahahahaha. He said it just didn't feel right and he doesn't want one now. I have a feeling that a Cutlass will do the trick for him.

    Yep. My Luke III came in yesterday sight unseen. Perfect right out of the box. It was even a blemish. Still looking for that. The instruments are sublime. Zero problems with buying without playing first.

    I bought mine from GC online. Had not played the guitar (never even played the previous model without the Roasted maple neck).
    Itís incredible.

    Have no fear!

    I just ordered my fourth EBMM online and I had never tried one in person before ordering. I got three from Sweetwater and one from Axe Palace. I've tweaked the setups, but all have been flawless instruments. #4 hasn't shipped yet and I'm already considering another!
