Oh yah the AL is just a great balance and very cool retro (Jetsons) shape. I've to an AL HH and an AL 3 MM90's. Love them both. If you can locate an AL with MM90's those are EBMM's custom wound P90 alternative. Just great sounding pickups in my opinion.
Yeah, I think I have decided that I am going to hold onto it. The EBMM stuff is just super rad and unique. I'm starting to think I will regret it, if I got rid of it. Plus, my bro my be pretty bummed since he grabbed it for me. lol.
I think that's a smart call. A brother buying you an EBMM guitar is no small thing. Definitely worth giving yourself a chance to bond with it. I almost traded away a guitar that I think a lot of today. I was glad weeks later that my trading partner bailed on the trade.
You're not locking yourself in long-term, but you'd be very unlikely to ever get that guitar back down the road if you sold it and later decided it was premature.
Very true...and I think that with time I will bond with it. It's a really killer guitar. Think I'm going to really spend some time playing it. Keep my bro happy too. lol
I think that's smart too. I get where you're coming from though as I had similar feelings about my JP15. I got it with an LIII around the same time and the LIII had a much more immediate connection for me. Best all around guitar I've ever played. The JP is a treat too but doesn't grip me the same way. That said, every time I play it I can't help but think how marvelous it plays. Def a keeper.
