    I'm not sure there was ever a SSS guitar with PRS nearfields and an alder body. The only guitars I know of that got those were the NF3 and the 25th anniversary swamp ash special. Otherwise they've...

    Also trying to talk myself out of a Cutlass after buying a Valentine. :D

    My PRS DC3 has an alder body and there is no weird low end thing going on with it. I wonder if the different bridge pickup...

    It's interesting stuff. Pete Thorn did a tone secrets video a while back where he scratched the surface of how this all works from a musician's perspective but it was light on technical details.

    Not to start a semantics debate on this but it's not a vintage vs modern fuzz pedal comparison, it's fuzz pedals with diodes made of germanium versus silicon.

    Are there any pedals which have an...

    The buffer drives me nuts. It's the only thing I dislike about EBMM guitars.

    If you aren't handy with electronics, pulling the guts and wiring in a normal Strat circuit wouldn't be a big deal for...

    I had no idea the Axis Sport SSS even existed! I'll keep an eye out for one.

    I did see the other day that G&L makes a neck shape that has similar measurements so I may jump on one of those.

    Wow, interesting! Thanks for all you Cutlass owners replying, it sounds like I should try to get my hands on one as well as an Albert Lee. The Hunter Hayes Cutlass has definitely caught my eye before.

    Closest SSS neck to a Valentine?

    I got a EBMM Valentine a few months ago and can't get over what a great instrument this is. My PRSes are lonely, yada yada. You all know the drill. :D

    The only thing I would change about it would...

    Happy NGD, I'm glad to hear your situation got resolved. I love EBMM's customer service and Sweetwater is solid as well.

    That's a beautiful instrument!

    You didn't say what pickups you got (that helps) but usually the metal braid of anything is going to be a ground point rather than carrying a signal.

    With that in mind, in theory it shouldn't...

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone!


    There is no substitute for a bridge humbucker for sure. I traded a PRS CE24 (outstanding guitar) for the Valentine. It was the right move to make without a...

    NGD: I finally got a Valentine

    I'm not a huge Maroon 5 fan but I went to college in Nebraska at the same time as James Valentine and was a big supporter of his work on the local scene. Sadly I never got to play with him as he...

    That sounds like a grounding problem.

    You can take it to a guitar shop and they can probably deal with it. If you're handy with electronics and have a multimeter, you can probably figure out...

    I had a tough time trying to find replacement 25k (volume) pots. EMG had them for sale but it was hit and miss everywhere else other than directly from EBMM. Finding replacements for the 500k tone...

    It depends on what year your LIII is. In 2015 they reengineered the preamp board and the cavity layout, including a different jack hole setup.

    If yours was built after that you can just order a...

    How funny, I came back to the forums to ask if anyone had ever bought a neck from EBMM because I have a LIII with a rosewood neck that I wish was a roasted maple.

    I have no way of knowing for sure but it looks like it based on other pics of the Bali Burst guitars.

    Build code is 919-LQ-DR-00-CS-CR but I don't know how to translate any of that.

    Yep, I just got out the multimeter and pulled the boost board - the tone pot is 500k. It's unmarked so I assumed it was the same as the volume pot, which is marked as being 25k
