    Default A little self promotion - EBMM bodies

    vanhalenclones.com Guitar players! I am more up to speed on doing music man bodies, now I can do a little more promoting now. I know some pople were wanting an update. What's great about these is you now can have a guitar exactly how you want to finish it, with an above average maple cap. Complete body kit will be a basswood body capped with premium maple tops . White binding and will include a machined aircraft grade ( t6160) aluminum neck plate. Here is a sample of a block I have available, it is enough for 3 guitars TOTAL eye candy!! . I am pricing these bodies at current market value for premium quilted/flame upgrade. I checked with warmoth and they are getting $550 for the same exact order not including a neckplate. My price will be $500 or $450 without binding. These are exact specs and they will fit an axis neck like a glove if you have one. If not, any standard after market neck with the same width will fit too. I am not quite up to speed on the neck program yet. I am working on one for a customer right now and will put some pics up as soon as it's done!

    That is AWESOME.

    Forgive me if this is in front of my face and I'm not seeing it, but are you doing to staining as well? I've sort of assumed that happens before the binding. Is that incorrect?

    Also: do you make stoptail or vintage trem versions?

    Thanks, to answer the queston above. Staining is done after. I don't do the finish work myself. I have hooked up with a pro finisher. So if you need finish work too I can get it done for you. This guy is a pro, he paints for a manufacturer is my area , cannot say who it is, but he has his own work on the side too. Yes you could have a vintage trem too. I will do other versions too. The main version is to duplicate the original EVH with the correct placement of the switches and heel. Other than that the sky is the limit!

    How does one go about making a quilt top? I would love to hear how they make the wood look like that?

    That is going to make for some gorgeous-ass tops for some lucky owners.

    I'd love to have one stained blue, with a stop-tail. Two knobs, two pickups. Duncan 59/Custom Alnico 2 Hybrid in the bridge, and a Jazz in the neck.

    F*ck me running, seriously!

    Big leaf maple is an amazing wood. It grows like that naturally.......... roughly 5% of trees look like that. The price reflects it too. It is like a fine gemstone. Same principal. Some I buy from a mill and some I've been cutting myself lately. It is alot of hard work to fall a tree mill it down and dry it. It is one of those things when you see what goes into the process you have a better appreciation for it!!
