How is this not full of posts?
I got an email about the vault having instruments, wow I'm ready to spend some money!


"The Vault" now has a different meaning! Before, it was stuff that Sterling forgot was under his bed. Now, it's stuff you can buy.

Which is even COOLER.

Playing the green one today I was wondering what happened to the orange one? Anyone know?

Both Craig Young and I wanted that one way back when.

It was reported that people actually did look for it....which may mean Dargin slid it under his bed, from whence no bass has ever escaped.

Maybe it's been found in the meantime? No idea. But it's sure orange and dead cool.

Couple quick thoughts on The Vault. First, I think it is awesome EBMM is making small batches or one-offs available to the general public without having to hunt one down at a retailer or pay premium pricing for scarcity. Second, ordering was a breeze - the website is very intuitive, communication about the order was perfect and the instrument was quickly shipped. Couldn't ask for a better process. Finally, every single instrument listed is aesthetically pleasing and there is plenty of variety. Whoever is deciding what to build is doing a phenomenal job!

Nice, would you mind posting some pictures of it?

Sure! It was very difficult trying to capture the color on this one. My iPhone camera kept making it loo blue for whatever reason but these few turned out well. The third photo does a really good job of showing the subtle metallic sparkle in the finish.

Denver area.
This bass looks like it was made for Ian Grushka from New Found Glory, and he's unfortunately gone in a different direction with the basses he plays. So, we have some cool Cutlass basses with roasted necks that can't go to a store.

Just seeing this - I assume those are gone?

Kia ora from New Zealand - the only way we seem to be able to order online from you is via the Vault. Are there any plans to extend online to the full range? I’d really love to get a Stingray Special in black, but right now only roasted orange is available. Thanks for any info!
