Thread: BFR "Classics"

    BFR "Classics"

    It seems to me the BFR "series" would lend itself to the occasional small run of discontinued models for those of us who were unenlightened to EBMM at that glorious time when the Reflex was being made. Being new to EBMM, I don't know of any other model that has been discontinued. Maybe some long timers could think of some.
    2018 Valentine - Vintage Sunburst BFR
    2009 25th Anniversary - Venetian Redburst
    2018 StingRay - Trans Walnut BFR
    2012 Luke II HSS - Sledge
    2013 LIII HH - Olive Gold
    2014 ASS Semi-Hollow w/Piezo - Vintage Sunburst
    2010 Reflex - Vintage Gold

    Axis Sport, Silhouette Special SSS, Reflex, Game Changer, Big AL Bass.

    EBMM doesn't usually reissue instruments after they've discontinued them. BFR's are small runs of like upgraded instruments, different finish, wood combinations and such. Remember the members of this forum are more passionate than most. They are trying to turn a profit and make some great instruments. They'll post pictures of things and we'll all be hot an bothered by it, but when it comes time to step up, most either don't or just can't. I myself am guilty of this. There use to be a lot more teasing around here in the past, I miss that part.

    Big Al was the first model that popped into my head, BUT...the BFRs that I'm aware of have all been small tweaks to hardware or finish, not things that require changing up big parts of the manufacturing.

    I won't pretend to be an expert, but it wouldn't surprise me to learn that it would be a non-trivial effort to retool the plant for a body they don't normally produce.

    So... Fun dream, but only that.

    Yep. The big sellers are still selling.

    My two faves of the discontinued instruments are the 25th Anniversary Guitar (the pre-Reflex or 'Preflex') and the 20th Anniversary Silhouette.

    Both short duration runs, mind you, but classics in my mind.

    That's why it's perfect for a small run (perfect for me anyway-lol). I never said it made good business sense.

    Yah know it might be kind of cool to have a sticky thread of the discontinued stuff. There are way more than I had remembered.
