yes they are great but the company is distasteful to me on many levels... and there is enough great companies who make equally great guitars out there to make me chose those instead.
I used to have a ton of different EBMM guitars. Great guitars in every aspect!
Amazingly enough, Sterling Ball was the one who got me to pursue other brands and sell off my stuff. There was just something about playing "his" guitars that didn't sit well with me.
I hear what you are saying. There was a situation a while back that Sterling got mad at me for misreading a thread I started on the forum. I have been nothing but a huge EB MM fan for a while now. At the time I had 4 EB MM guitars. He said some crap about me throwing them under the bus, when in reality thats the farthest thing from what I was saying.
The mods got on my case about it I had to clarify stuff with them and work things out. And were all good
I was about to sell off all of my EB MM guitars because of how poorly things were handled but in the end I kept two of the guitars because they are so damn good.
But I know a lot of people that dont play them because of Sterling and his attitude. Its a shame because they are such fantastic instruments.
Great customer service though
