Folks, please keep the number of photos in your F/S post to no more than 5, so as to limit the amount of scrolling people have to do to get through the thread. If people are interested you can share more photos with them directly when they contact you.

Many thanks!

2016 EBMM Cutlass SSS for TRADE

Great white on white SSS Cutlass (2016).

Posted a stray-style and NGD about the beauty not long's a great axe, but my playing style and ear really prefer the humbuckers/mini humbucker sound.

Hoping to trade for a St. Vincent with the 3 minis.

Hoping to work something out at the forum instead of the GC. IMG_4302.JPG

Ernie Ball Musicman BFR Luke III.

This guitar is one of 65 in the world. It was a limited release that quickly sold out. The shadow gold color was only released on this particular run of Luke III's. Unlike regular Luke III's, this one features a mahogany body, roasted flame maple neck with ebony fretboard, and stainless steel frets. It has the DiMarzio Transition pickups and the 20db boost on a push push volume pot.

The photos really don't do the color of the guitar any justice. It's absolutely stunning in person. The backplate has been signed by Steve Lukather.

It comes complete with original hardshell case, paperwork, and goodies from the factory.

$2600 shipped and paypal'd (trades considered would be a Luke III HSS in buttermilk + cash, EVH)

Looking to trade my LUKE III Tumescent HSS (40 of 300) for a LUKE III Tumescent HH model. Guitar is in near mint condition with OHSC and all case candy. May be coerced into other LUKE III HH models as long as it has the roasted maple neck.

EBMM Silo Special SSS, Hardtail, CAR

Hi All,

I have a nice 2004, EBMM Silhouette Special, hardtail, in Candy Apple Red. In very good shape and plays really well. Neck pickup had a short so I replaced it with an SD Lil '59, which I think complements the other pups nicely. Sale includes the original neck pup and OHSC. Weight is a nice 7.5lbs.

Price is $1100 shipped and paypalled to the continental US. Please, no trades.

I've been on this forum some time now and thoroughly enjoyed my Ernie Ball guitars and in the past, working at some of the exhibitions in the UK for Strings n Things - during those, I used to get some free-be's that I used to give away on "Spuds online Xmas parties".
Anyway, I'm left with my two Albert Lees - THAT I'M KEEPING lol. But I have some stuff that I'd like to sell off now that I'm retired and will help fund some parts for my DeLorean. :)

First off, for £99 is a Music Man 5983 Hardshell Guitar Case it will fit a Silo, Axis, EVH, Albert Lee and JP6 ... a Luke 3 (and I assume a Luke 1 and 2 ? )
Bump edit case still for sale due to 2 time wasters.
Next up for £49 is a brand New Piezo preamp - it was going to be for my JP6 renovation, but I didn't actually need it.

Next I have lots of MM endorsee photos - some signed some not - including a signed Eric Clapton photo who I know was a big fan of the MM amps and a lot of unique MM plectrums - would people be interested in these as I would like them to go to a true MM fan who will cherish them - the same as myself. Please pm me and I'll discuss further. Thank you
Being retired, and in my mid 60's it's time to pass on "the baton".

JP13 6 - PDN Cardinal Red Sparkle w/Chrome DiMarzios

Okay, I listed this awhile ago and then thought I couldn't let myself sell it so I pulled the ad. After spending some more time playing it, I've decided after all that I would really like to let it go. 7 strings ftw for me.

Excellent condition, chrome Dimarzio Dominions, case candy etc. all included. I don't have the original pickups. Will also come with an EB strap.

I'd like to get 2,150 USD shipped Con-USA. I will pack like it's going through a warzone.

Oct 8: Still available!

2008 Silo Special Limited Edition $1,200 USD CONUS Only

Hi All,

I just got another EBMM and can’t justify having so many guitars. This is a 2008 Silhouette Special SSS Limited Edition in great condition. I can’t find a flaw on the guitar and it’s only been used within non smoking homes (my house and my drummer’s house). It comes with the original LE case. I will only sell and ship CONUS. I’ll be posting this in my local Craigslist site as well.

This is by far the hardest guitar finish I’ve tried to take pics of. The pictures just don’t do it justice. It’s a cloudy day here and the lack of sun is limiting the pop of the finish. If you search for images of the EBMM Sequoia Gold LE models, you’ll probably find much more accurate photos of how beautiful this color is. It’s very unique.

Looking at unloading either my 2018 NAMM JP7 in Firemist Gold (Petrucci demo and Jason Richardson played), or my 2017 NAMM Majesty Marrone.

Looking at $1800 for the JP7, which is pretty much 'new' save for a small surface blew by the piezo knob, which can't be seen unless the light hits it just right.

The Maj would be around 2K. The bridge has anodized a bit, so not as new in that regard. But still, overall EX+ condition. Both guitars have been used in a studio recording environment only.

Only looking to lose one of them for another EBMM purchase, so when one goes, I'll pull the ad.
Having trouble uploading images, just hit me up in DM and I'll shoot them over.
