The Axis, St. Vincent, and Luke III

Ernie Ball Music Man have updated their Ball Family Reserve series, a celebration of the company's heritage in instrument craftsmanship, with the addition of three new models as part of their November reveal.

Following the release of the September and October instruments, the Ball Family Reserve collection is now further enhanced by this month’s additions: the Axis in Natural Koa, St. Vincent in Light Translucent Gold, and the Luke III in Claro Walnut.


The Axis features a hand-stained Koa top with a translucent natural finish, a flame-figured roasted maple neck, and hand-shaped black binding for both neck and body appointments.

In Light Translucent Gold, the St. Vincent achieves a vintage look with a mahogany body, hand-shaped white binding, and a flame-figured roasted maple neck similar to that of the Axis.

The Luke III is the last of the group and, like the St. Vincent, features a mahogany body and roasted maple neck. This model is finished in a translucent walnut burst over a rare claro walnut top and is made with 22 stainless steel frets to enable a smoother feel during string bends. 

All three guitars are available as extremely limited editions with 60 pieces for the Axis, 23 for St. Vincent, and 36 for the Luke III.
