We are in the final stages of testing and although we are running later than expected, the results will be worth the wait.
Our testing time is being spent primarily on the custom proprietary electronics that we’ve designed. We have very high standards and therefore the details matter.
We have got the gain structure and effects imaging (between the 2 speakers) where we want and it is showcasing the other great aspects of our design.
Our preamp sounds great and has the headroom and expansiveness that we designed for.
Our power amp is measuring about 18 watts of audio muscle, split between 2 speakers. In fact, we had a jam last week with some friends of ours, and the guitar held its own with drums, bass, and keys.
The acoustic treatment inside our Model One is having a huge positive impact on our sound. This has not been a trivial pursuit. In fact, our work in this area has spawned a few innovative new products that you will be able to use on your other guitars. More later…
Our final testing is almost complete. Almost.
Thank you for your support and patience. You will not be disappointed.

A a quick note to update you on EP’s production status. We are excited to let you know that we are very close to completing the final production prototypes.
Essential components are being stocked at our Inglewood factory, ready for assembly. Our suppliers, manufacturing and development partners have truly gone “above and beyond” our expectations. We are grateful to all our partners for their hard work and dedication. They have been instrumental (pun intended) in making the EP dream guitar a reality.
Depending on where you are in the delivery schedule (April, May, June, etc.) your actual delivery date may vary. Our April deliveries will be late but we should be able to catch up by May.
We assure you that your EP guitar is worth waiting for and we thank you for your continued support and patience. If you have any specific questions don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
We are excited to announce that our new online store is open for business. Using our store, you are able to see the current colors available and add options to your guitar purchase, like a tremolo bar.
In the future we will be adding a lot of new functionality so stay tuned for new stuff.
The NAMM Convention is a huge event where musical product manufacturers show off their latest wares. The floors of the convention are a cacophony of every type of musical instrument and audio product being demonstrated… all at the same time!
There are rock star appearances/ signings, various events, and thousands of people: buyers, distributors, retailers, music store employees, etc. walking the aisles to see “what’s new” in the music/ audio world. It’s a nerve jangling, mind numbing experience—sensory overload.
This year ElectroPhonic had our Model One debut, showing off our gorgeous prototypes in Hall E. Thank you team for helping us with our NAMM debut. The sound was absolutely incredible. (Thank-you Tim Thompson and team) And the story we told showing off early prototypes, was interesting for folks.
It was amazing to witness the looks of astonishment on people’s faces when they realized the fat sound they were hearing was coming out of the Model One guitar itself.
We lost track of how many people said “that’s the coolest thing at the show.” The most common reaction was amazement at the fantastic tone, followed by shock when I cranked up the volume!
On Sunday the crowd had thinned and I decided to take a walk around the convention halls with the Model One in hand. As I wandered around, people were pointing and saying “whoa, check that out!”, etc. Several times I was stopped and asked about the guitar… “is this the guitar I saw on Facebook?” Of course I was always happy to give a quick demonstration. A lot of people I met made their way to the EP booth to get info, check out the prototypes, ask about how to purchase, etc.
All in all, a fun experience and a successful debut of the Model One EP.
