The high performance ‘Valentine’ signature guitar, designed in collaboration with James Valentine of Maroon 5, was one of the eye- catchers at Summer NAMM. Featuring a slab ash body, two Ernie Ball Music Man designed pickups (1-humbucker/1-single coil) with a 3-way custom wired lever switch and coil tap, the guitar is a must-see at this year’s show.
Another must-see guitar is John Petrucci’s JP16 16th Anniversary signature guitar. The JP16 is the first guitar designed with Petrucci that implements a Floyd Rose double locking tremolo system.
Bassists can also catch a glimpse of the new Cutlass bass – a retro first for Ernie Ball Music Man. The Cutlass bass is an old school split-coil passive humbucking design with top-loading bridge. It’s sleek and modern, with vintage features.
Catch all of these new instruments at the Ernie Ball Music Man stand (#75) at the Melbourne Guitar Show.
