    Hi guys,

    I decided to create a new bass model club.

    Like shown in Thread title:

    Ernie Ball Music Man reflex & 25th Anniversary bass Club

    For people who don't know much about these wonderful basses just brief description:

    Reflex is serial production model of 25th Anniversary model from this famous bass/guitar/gear factory (Ernie Ball Music Man).

    Here's mine, 2011. EBMM reflex 5 HH:

    I hope this Club will have it's own place under the sun in this huge bass world of Talkbass forum!
    And now I'm giving myself #1 members number as a creator of Thread/Club, ...The Club is open, all owners are invited!

    Cheers, Keko!

    Perfect IMHO. Reflex 5 will eventually be paired up with my current White/White Big Al 5.

    Sure it will! :)

    I always wanted a white bass with maple board, but one is enough for me! :smug:

    Next bass will be something modern with mighty preamp and pickup/s, in crazy bright sparkle/metallic color, 5 strings...and I think I wanna piezo option badly! ;)

    Thanks for Your comment,

    Keko

    Big Al 5's preamp and pickups are definitely "Mighty". Start raising them up and they raise hell with the string vibrations of hte low strings. Some serious magnets in them casings.

    I know all about Big Al basses, I'm an EBMM fanboy :D ...but my point was more on incoming Bongo with lightweight tuners (check this piezo option part)!

    Now please, back to the RX & 25th models, OK? ;)

    Not to steal your thunder, or anything. But I plan to own one identical to this. I'm seriously jealous. Sadly I cannot join the club yet, but just you wait :)

    Mrfstop, ... all well with member number #3

    Your RX 4 HSS is "younger" than mine, as far as I remember You were one of the first owners in the world! :)

    Nice reddish rosewood grain ...and these single coils are neodymium, right? H pickup is ceramic, as it should be! ;)

    I'm looking forward to that! :)

    But I must warn You, mine is "on order" model, that means that maple board with white color is not a stock model, well maybe in future will be, I don't know! :rolleyes:

    P.S. ...I ordered mine in Autumn 2010. and received it in first quarter of 2011., just look at my face (white like a bass :D ) on this pic with my dealer in the store when bass arrived:

    Hey... thanks for the number!
    I recall you owning yours before I picked up mine.
    I saw ya posting pics of it on the EBMM forum.
    I loved the white and black theme of yours.
    Then found mine for sale "as new" from an EBMM Forum member who bought it and then had to let it go right away un used.
    I love this thing...It is one amazing tone machine for sure!
    And with a TON of of eyeball and curb appeal as well :D
    The only thing that might make it cooler would be if it had a black ebony fretboard.....But EBMM does not offer Ebony on many of their models. ( which I think is nuts! :( )

    This Reflex and my recent addition of one Big AL with another on the way have become my favorite EBMM basses of the moment. Really loving the HSS and SSS pup configs....
    Been letting go of some seeeerrrrrrious Stingrays to obtain these beauties....sadly :(

    Not yet, but who knows, ...maybe shows up "The Game Changer reflex" 6 strings version in the future?

    Until than only Bongo 6 is available from EBMM factory!
    (H, HH, and HS pickup configuration)

    I'll do my best to proceed this information (Your wish) to the right people! ;)

    Well if John Myung could own two Bongo 6 bangers (Ice Silver HS and Black Pearl HS), I'm sure You could afford one some day! :bassist:

    I guess we will not be spending much if we are to throw a party? hahaha!! :)

    I do not think there are all THAT many people on here who play Reflexes or 25th basses....

    Ohh yeah, ...no need to hurry, take Your time! ;)

    I know a solid number of owners, mostly 25th models, but it seems they are not all TB members, ...I'm patient, ...this club will grow, that's for sure...just give us some time! :smug:

    I know also about a few EBMM Artists owning these basses (including The Game Changer reflexes), but don't believe they are members too? Will see about that! :eyebrow:
