Breeding results of hets provide a 1:2:1 ratio. Siblings who are het present with a reduced pattern while those who are not EB have normal colored pattering with pinstripe . Therefore, it could be that EB is a trait that modifies pattern and enhances the pinstripe trait or is epistatic with Pinstripe acting as an enhancer while reducing coat coloration. The phenotypic spread behaves incomplete dominantly as confirmed by multiple sources working on this phenotype. We have noticed slight similarities to cappuccino pinstripe animals, they are not related just phenotypically similar. This shows more of a phenotype overlap with how some traits can behave similarly. The cappuccino however does not receive enlarged scales along the pin and also has a different appearance than the EB . EB phantoms are also another combo that shows this trait behaving non-allelic and similar to other phenotype combos that can be made. 
The coloration of the pin can be white, cream, yellow, or tangerine depending on how many other traits are phenotypically active in the animal. 
No history yet.
Empty Back is similar to the superstripe trait and the pinstripe trait regarding its appearance on the animal, however, pattern color is significantly reduced and in the homozygous form almost all color is completely suppressed, some exceptions for this are yellow base and tangerine combo phenotypes where the color is modified instead of completely suppressed. The best examples of this morph are completely empty of pattern color, leaving only pinstripe and base color and usually laterally belly striping. The pinstripe scales in these animals are usually significantly raised to what we normally see with pinstripe .
