    I was thinking the same thing - it was Steve Morse, then EVH, and wasn't Luke before Albert? Or was it Albert before Luke?

    Wow - I saw the UK prices and that is a HUGE bump over the USA prices. Here EBMM is priced like most other premium brands - PRS, Suhr's production models, etc.

    Yep the 4+2 headstock makes its production debut on the Silhouette guitar in 1986. As tbonesullivan says the Leo-era StingRay and Sabre guitars had 6-inline tuners, but the basses of course had the...

    It goes back further than that - the MM90s were made in-house, and I think they start in 1998? I may be off by a year either way on that.

    oledave's Sabre II is one of the original Leo Fender-era models that was made from 1978-1982 (I think - not sure when those went out of production). Leo parted ways with MM during 1978, and stopped...

    It could definitely be the offset body based on your description. About the only EBMM body that is offset is the StingRay body. The Sabre has a little bit of an offset, and the Cutlass seems to...

    That is correct; I'm not sure exactly when they added the Silent Circuit to the Albert Lees. The earliest AL that I've owned was a 2006 (with 3 MM90s) and it had it.
