    Thanks danny-79. Do you recall if the pickup covers were easy to pop off, or are they glued in place? I got all the steel wool I could off the exposed pole pieces, but can imagine that there may be...

    That is one of the most stunningly beautiful finishes I've seen on a guitar!

    I can say that the headstock shape is a good bit off, and it has John Petrucci's signature at the top (which should not be on an Axis, which is what this style would be known as now). EBMM has not...

    Used Bongo 4HH - bridge pickup hum

    Hello all! I recently picked up a 2010 Bongo, which I am really digging.

    I've noticed a bit of a hum, static noise, coming from the bridge pickup only. I can sort of dial it out with the EQ,...

    Same here... I am a bit behind as I haven't bought the newest couple, but the trinity does sound worthwhile. I used the one with the shield for a while, and right now I've been reaching for his...

    Yes, because that is where the bass side of the tremolo happens to line up opposite the spring cavity - all good and normal!

    Congrats on the new guitar... post more pictures!

    I have JP's (no Axis or EVH) in my stable, but I have recently found myself using the tone knob to dial a bit of the harshness or "bite" out of my sound... obviously depending on the amp and signal...
