    Searching For Tele Style

    Sorry if this has been covered before but I refuse to believe that I'm the only one that would LOVE to see EBMM make a T-style guitar. I would think this would quickly move to one of their top sellers. With their close association with Leo over the years, I would think a killer Tele/ASAT type of guitar with the quality of MM behind it with the modern features a la the Cutlass, these would move out the door faster than they could make them. Am I the only one?

    It’s different in appearance, and opinions vary, but the Valentine is pretty remarkable covering that sonic ground, to my ears, though it has range beyond with the neck humbucker. Who knows what’s on the drawing board for the “modern classics” series, though.

    Yes. I'm looking for a more traditional look a la the ASAT, Suhr Classic T but an EBMM version with EBMM appointments.

    Here's mine:



    The backstory: I bought an Axis on ebay a few months back. It had been refinished (not professionally) and hardware swapped. Paid under $400 for it! It makes a great Tele.

    Looking for a much more traditional body style. That is nice though and I'm sure it plays and sounds great.

    I like the idea! Of course, the Axis is close to the body shape.... but not the pickups. That 'inexpensive' one of klaveguitar's looks awesome!

    I have an Axis Super Sport MM90 that sounds and feels pretty close to a Tele. That's what I use it for, at any rate. Having said that, I have a '66 Tele that's pretty cool, but all of my EBMMs play and sound better.
