    New these were $3300, but they just discontinued this finish and introduced new (uglier IMO) finishes. I've been following these on Reverb for a while and they're going between $2100 and $2500.
    Beautiful guitar!

    Where are you seeing the new finishes? I haven't been able to find any
    I'm just here.

    They were featured in this EBMM blog post. Pic and video below.

    Charcoal and Honeypot are alright, but I'm not a fan of the other two.

    I don't know how I missed that lol.

    I agree, I'm not the biggest fan of most of those finishes. I think the Matcha green would look better with chrome hardware though.

    Thanks, guys. I'm still very much vibing with this guitar. Here's another clip from a few weeks back. Using the Eventide Micropitch plugin for the harmonized sound here.

    Congratulations! I've owned two, plus one of the OG EBMM/EVH guitars, and they are amazing. The pickups in those are IMO the best sounding EVH pickups ever produced. I traded them thinking I would eventually get one again, but then the prices shot into the stratosphere and I just haven't talked myself into getting another.

    She's a beauty! Amazing color and I appreciate the non-matching headstock.
