    Question Reflex/25th Anniversary Story

    I've been searching and looking and reading and searching, and looking and reading...but I've never found the story of where the ideas for 25th/Reflex came from. I've got a buddy that is back looking at EBMMs for the first time in years since I've jumped on the bandwagon and during our discussion earlier today I realized I had no idea about the history of the model and/or its innovations.

    The only think I know is that the tone block concept started in the 20th anniversary Silo. To my knowledge there haven't been any other chambered bodies, especially basswood.

    So, lay it on me. If there's a youtube I missed or a thread I'll devour it! My guess is that BP is going to have to answer.

    Thanks!

    Hi Luke,

    Big fan of the 25th like you - its been my fave EBMM and guitar for many years

    Over the years I've tried to do a deep dive into the story of the model, but off the top of my head, this was a very interesting thread started by BP: Jan 5 Update 25th GUITAR PREMIERE new pix

    Pics are missing, but top notch info.

    Cheers

    Yah they are from Photobucket. Not a very good place to host pictures anymore, but at the time was top notch.

    I moved all mine out and now use IMgBB.com. You can download the photobucket images to you computer and then upload them to another site.

    Well, I never turn down the chance to show off my 1-of-a-kind Reflex.

    This is an older pic without the anodized blue knobs and pickup switch, but the rest still looks the same.
