    Well, I'm not sure it's any of those things as I plugged my pedalboard back into my interface (I do not have a noise gate on it) and it's pretty well cleaned up. I'll just use real life OD's as much...

    AL HH noise

    My AL HH gets a lot noisier in med-high gain settings than my STV's (both original stealth black and the Goldie), which in my relative ignorance I'd figure shouldn't be the case. I was wondering if...

    EBMM artist history curiosity

    I was wondering the chronology of EBMM artist endorsements-just for my own curiosity's sake, enjoyment of useless historical trivia. Morse is the earliest endorsee still with the company, Albert Lee...

    So I take it you've removed the circuit board harness. Have you looked into finding the Gibson 495r and 495t's? They're hard to find aftermarket as they're stock in the modern Firebirds-they're...

    I'd love to try one of those. A good hollow/semihollow is the only thing I feel like I'm lacking from my collection. If EBMM could fill that void, I'd have no need to go through any other maker for...

    Uneven frets 2021 models, St Vincent Goldie

    When I first got my STV Goldie, it had a number of uneven frets. Annoying for sure, but at least relatively simple to fix (I do a lot of my own maintenance, but I did give EBMM a head's up, offered...

    EBMM in house pickups
