In this segment, Sterling takes us through the Ernie Ball Music Man factory that produces the company's guitars and basses. Here, we get to see specific processes on how the guitars are setup, how the necks are carved, shaped, and given EBMM's signature feel and playability, the patented chamber patterns of an Axis, how they do seamless binding, and Sterling talks about how it's hard being a CEO during these shaky economic times.
In this segment, EBMM's Chief Designer Dudley Gimpel gives a personal tour of their historic guitar collection, including rare models and prototypes of the Eddie Van Halen guitar, Nigel Tufnel's (Spinal Tap) Signature Mr. Horsepower guitar, Steve Morse signature, one of the first Silhouettes, and a prototype of Albert Lee's signature guitar.
Here, we get to see how PBG enables players to choose from their portfolio of boutique, masterbuilt guitars without the uncertainty, long wait times, and lack of customer support often associated with boutique instruments. The PBG shop is run by master luthier and head engineer Gene Baker and production manager Gil Vasquez who have over 30 years of combined experience and expertise in the guitar-building world.
