    As of today I am a member of this club, and proudly so!
    I traded an AVRI'62 strat for a Music Man Axis:

    It plays like a dream and is very light. In fact it is lighter than the exact same guitar that a friend owns. I love it!

    I joined the club with an Albert Lee HH. Powder blue with white pick guard. May be the most comfortable guitar I've played.

    EBMM Luke with solid rosewood BFR neck in Sterling Silver.

    The bridge EMG 85 has been replaced with an 89 which splits to single coil but is still active and silent. The push pull is on the volume knob, default is down which is single and up activates full humbucker.

    Just traded a Duesenberg D-Caster for a EBMM Albert Lee MM90. Thrilled with the transaction. Build quality on EBMMAL is far superior and it really "just feels right" to me. Have long since graduated from the headstock logo; and now go only by comfort and ability for the instrument to inspire me. Thanks EBMM!

    Funny you should say that, because, having been playing my various Telecasters almost exclusively for some while, I've recently once again been using my 1990 Silhouette with the Kinman AVn-Blues pickup set for a few jams and a gig or two. The ergonomic qualities and the lightness of the Music Man guitar are very striking; it's a joy to work with and I'm reminded yet again why it's been my main working instrument for many extended periods of time over the past 19 years or so.

    It won't replace any of my six Telecasters entirely but it's still a very effective weapon in my musical armoury.

    I've had a few EBMM's over the years but haven't had one since early 2011. I rectified that situation last week with this Albert Lee HH - it's one of their 2012 Premier Dealer's Network limited editions. On the AL HH it mostly deviates from norm specs by having a roasted maple neck, pao ferro fingerboard and stainless steel frets:

    and a close-up of the roasted neck:

    I no longer own these, but in the past I kind of had a thing for Silo Specials:

    2007 LE Blue Dawn:

    And the last EBMM before the AL - a 2010 Silo Special in olive gold (ordered on just about the last day to order one of these in 2009):

    How do you like yours?

    Those PDNs are gorgeous, John C.

    Wife already gave me the go-ahead for an Armada. :)

    Thanks LawDaddy; love your Y2D - it's got a great top!

    Cool on the Armada - I really want to see one of them in person.

    I'm liking it lots. The rosewood necks are awesome. The EMGs are great for cleans, the '89 in the bridge when split sounds very Tele like. I'm using the bridge pickup mostly in split mode, it's still hum free. It's not a light guitar, not sure how much the neck affects that being solid rosewood, it definitely feels like a very solid guitar.

    My 2006 Silo HSH. No mods, everything is original. It´s a very twangy guitar and the original pus (DiMarzio Virtual PAF and custom wound sc) match perfect with low output. No volume drops between the 5 positions. It´s an axe for everything between country and hardrock. Perfect quality and playability. Love EBMM guitars but this one is by far the best I owned. I play it as often as my telly.

    So many amazing looking guitars that remind me of how much I don't like ebony looking fretboards! All these fretboards with figured rosewood and maple are something!
