    How much gain/overdrive are you using? Dimarzios are wax potted, and I haven't really heard of their modern pickups without covers going microphonic. With enough gain you can get just about anything...

    This is true for just about every guitar with active preamps. It's also true for most pedals that have batteries. Many have a buffer or other circuitry to help it when in bypass mode, so any time a...

    ARRRRGGHHHHHHH. Yeah steel wool and guitars should never mix. I know some people used to be about it, but with scotch brite pads and other types of abrasives, there is NO need to ever bring a...

    The headstock on EBMM basses is not finished with the oil and wax blend. They are finished with satin polyurethane, and the finish goes until the nut.

    When I got some, I first used water think...

    Looks almost like someone with rings on their fingers tried to play it. That's not normal wear at all. Usually you see little dents/dings on the very back of the neck from leaning against things, but...

    The neck has to match the pocket exactly, and has to be the exact same length, or there will be intonation and sustain nightmares. I doubt anyone has tried it before.

    I'm pretty sure that the EVH...

    A coil tap should not cause that much of an issue, as long as it is a 4 conductor pickup. Then you would just need to install a mini switch somewhere to short the spliced wires to ground.

    The...

    I never understand why people do this to instruments, and don't even seem to bother to keep the original electronics. You don't get much better than EBMM electronics, IMHO. I'll take my EBMM...

    Do both have fresh batteries? Are the pickups adjusted the same height? Same gauge strings?

    All of those are things that could influence the output level of the bass. Also how the EQ is set.

    I...

    That's Guitar center for you. I hope they ordered you a case or knocked a nice chunk off the price. Those cases are solid and not cheap. I won't put my EBMM guitars in anything else.

    Yeah, to clarify, ALL EBMM instruments have a painted headstock. It's just question of what type of paint job it has. The EBMM logo and other markings are silk-screened on, and then at least a satin...

    Which guitar are these in, and what pickups are they? Have you tried raising or lowering the pickups to change the tonal profile?

    Generally if you want more mids, more winds on the pickup would...

    The G string has a lot less mass than the other strings, so naturally it will have less output, regardless of the bass. It often seems to be more of a voicing issue than anything else. Raising the...

    It was an option at some points. Then guitars like the PDN runs, BFR runs, and other limited editions will have them.

    The entire JP line has been in need of streamlining for a long time. This is just a continuation of the process. As what JP wants changes, the guitars change with him, as expected of a "Progressive"...

    Whoa. That looks like when it was set up, that one side of the bridge was raised (or lowered) and the other side wasn't. The FR bridge is radiused so it shouldn't need to have one side higher than...

    Ok, confusion lifted! That is a great color. I've always wanted an Axis SS. I just for some reason keep having trouble when it comes down to tremolo (which i don't use) or hard tail. I keep...

    Well, the write up says they are Artist Relations guitars, so they may have non-standard offerings, which is why there are EMGs. We'll have to wait and see what EBMM says. They have some other NICE...

    Is the rust just on the outside? Or it is down where the pivot is?

    Did something spill in there possibly? Usually it's very rare to see corrosion on those, as they are plated.

    NICE!!! I'm a little confused though, is that one guitar or two? It was routed SSH, and painted, so is the guitar with two H pickups a different one, or did you have the neck pickup route expanded?

    It's gotta be fun getting the action right. There isn't much neck angle to work with on most EBMM guitars, so getting a bigsby to work is like putting one on a telecaster. you might need to replace...

    Clapton definitely felt that it was a different sound. He never used the tremolo, and would block all of his. All of his signature models are the same way, when he could easily just make it a hard...
