Thread: Sale of Endorsed EBMM Guitars

    Sale of Endorsed EBMM Guitars

    Every now and then I see guitars offered online as Artist or Endorsed guitars.

    My question is are endorse artist allowed to sell their guitars?

    I know there are some different levels and some artist just get discounts, but if EBMM gives someone a guitar, is it that artist property to sell or will EBMM be knocking on the door if someone buys it?

    Just looking for general guideline.

    What "rules" EBMM have in place are not something that we know of here and not something they will discuss in public. I can only imagine that it is clear to the artists if they receive a guitar what the situation is and what the right thing to do is.

    Certainly, here on the forum, we are just musicians and fans of these guitars and it is not our place to call out or shame or chase anyone who sells their artists guitars, whether they are entitled to do so or not.

    I don't think that was the intent here - I think the OP just wanted to know whether they could legally buy a used Artist guitar, or whether it is still officially the property of EBMM.

    I agree that that was likely the op's intent.

    I can honestly say, if I had a one off made for me it’d be passed on in my will.

    ... I don't even know if there is a word for that level of low class. That's essentially asking for a handout.

    I wanted to buy Clay Cooks Albert Lee but didn’t have the scratch at the time. It was a beauty too. Roasted maple neck and had been used on Zac Brown Band albums
