    Default Jerry Cantrell and EBMM

    I recently dloaded AIC playing Would live at the Singles Premiere in 92. Jerry was playing an EVH EBMM that was Gold but without the matching headstock. Was Gold with the natural headstock one of the regular EVH's during the time or was it a custom one that Ed had given him. I know Ed gave him a few of them. There's pics of him with a Trans Purple and Trans Amber but i have never seen an EVH EBMM that didnt have a matching headstock. Just wondering. BTW I came upon a Trans Black at a pawnshop in Macon and got a steal on it for $900 bucks. In great shape with a couple of dings from natural player's wear. I've heard that the Trans Black were really rare so if anyone has info on them lemme know.

    From my research the trans-black is not as rare as the gold top or the solid black topped EBMM. I believe approx 1000 were made of the trans black. I may be off so if anyone has firm numbers let us know. Many of the trans black faded into an olive green color due to UV light changing the color of the stain. I've seen purple ones fade and then passed off as trans black so check with EB before buying one as a "transblack"

    I've got a trans black and luckily the original owner kept it in the case vs. the showroom windowfront.

    900 is a good buy, even with player wear.

    The gold tops are extremely rare. The ones I've seen had natural headstocks vs. color matched headstocks.

    There is or was a Trans Purple on ebay that has faded and was going for $3000. I believe it was guitar center that had it up. There's also a trans green going for over $3000. My trans black has one little faded part on the headstock and thats it.

    This Purple seems to be faded also only at $860
