That is simply stunning. Still love series 1 guitars the best.

Is that split volume/tone pots?

Yes. I asked for individual volume and tone and the limited space in the cavity of the wood bodies made the concentric pots necessary.

WOW, 4 years have passed since my last post...

So, I have a serie one baritone EGC and after 3 years I am thinking about changing the bridge pickup. Right now it mounts an original EGC pickup (with split tone pot), but it's too high-gain for my tastes...
Has anyone here ever changed the pickups on one of of these monster guitars?
Maybe I will start by changing the pot or adding a resistance in the circuit before changing the pickup... any tip/suggestion? I like the sound (even if it is too bright for me, but pedal/amp eq do the trick) but the output is way too aggressive and I would like something a little bit more neutral...

(I am sure that this topic already came out but I can't find anything on the forum)

Reach out to Kevin re: your pickup needs. At the very least, he will have the best perspective on what would work, EGC or otherwise...

yeah, and make sure you're very specific about what you have and what you want. Take pics.
I recently bought a new EGC bridge pickup for my EGC Standard #69 and the pickup he sent didn't mount directly onto the neck rails like the original.

New guy here. I have a good friend that is about to put his EGC up for sale. He bought it from a music store in Minnesota new in 2008 and doesn't know much about it. I'm helping him sell it in return for him letting me use it to record. (I am in love and now it's my life's goal to own an EGC Bass VI)

How would someone go about appraising its value? I tried looking at 'sold' ebay and reverb listings, but the different models vary wildly in price and I can't find one that's like his. I belong to a FB group dedicated to aluminum guitars, but I never see the prices they end up selling for. l'il help?

It's a 2008 series one guitar in white. #221 Here's a link to some pics: http://imgur.com/a/v2Dgl

(ps I'm obviously not going to sell it here if I'm getting appraisal from you guys, so...sorry in advance!)

The going price for that guitar when it was new was probably about $2,200.
Since then, prices have gone up on new models, but used guitars seem to go for slightly under new price unless they are some unique design, or a body shape that can no longer be made.
My guess is that guitar should be listed for about $2,200 with an expected sale price of $1,800-$2,000.

Hate to do it but my EGC500 is back up for sale. #104, received from EGC in April 2007. 9/10 condition, just needs a new set of strings. Asking $1800 firm plus actual shipping cost. Would prefer to ship only to CONUS. Any questions email me at ksullivan19@gmail.com.

For me it is a lightning-in-a-bottle type guitar. Those are the best words I can find this early in the morning. I waited a long time for it. "Worth it" is pretty subjective, but it is 1 of 1 and will be in my family forever, which is a cool feeling. I'm into cars and always jealous when I hear stories like "my dad/mom/uncle ordered this Charger back in 1968 directly from the dealer yadda yadda yadda". Now I have something like that to pass along. Strictly speaking, as an instrument, it plays better than anything I've ever owned and seems to be indestructible. Both admirable and rare qualities.

If I ever do a revised edition of my book, I want to use this quote.

(Also, yes, worth it. When I got my baribass several months ago I intended to sell my Standard as space is finite at home. Just can't part with it though.)
