Ernie Ball Music Man debuts Family Reserve October series

This month, Music Man has introduced the Majesty in Cinnabar Red, Valentine in Pine Green, StingRay in White Smoke, and the Axis in Steel Blue.



A sparkling Cinnabar Red finish covers the body of this Family Reserve Majesty, complete with a streamlined fretboard with two sets of pearl inlays in lieu of the standard Majesty shield position markers. Each model is hand-signed by John Petrucci, and the entire collection is limited to just 105 pieces.



The Pine Green-finished Valentine boasts a figured, roasted maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, pearl block inlays, and matching paint for its headstock to tie into the overall aesthetic. The guitar also features an ash body, white pickup rings, and gold hardware. It’s limited to 63 pieces.



Limited to just 39 pieces, the White Smoke StringRay features a tortoiseshell guard, pearl block inlays, roasted maple neck, rosewood fingerboard, and hand fitted white binding. It also boasts a matching headstock and white plastic pickup covers.



With only 75 pieces available, you’ll need to get in quick to secure one of these limited Axis designs.  Each guitar features a one-piece maple fingerboard, satin-finished figured maple neck with Schaller tuners, and a light blue finish on the back of the instrument to contrast the hand-stained Blue Steel finish on the flame figured maple top.


Ernie Ball Music Man is distributed in Australia through CMC Music
