- An instrument from the strictly limited "Music Man PDN Neptune Blue" series. These are guitars and basses, some of them unique and one-of-a-kind, built to individual specs exclusively for the Music Man Premier Dealer network. Using selected Music Man guitar and bass models from the current production as a basis, all these guitars and basses share unique features such as a mahogany body in the special "Neptune Blue" finish, high & wide profile stainless steel frets, and on top of that, as a special extra feature, an extremely beautiful figured neck made of "Roasted Maple". These instruments are priced very moderately, considering the numerous extra features, however, they will be instant collector's items! Ernie Ball Music Man Premier Dealer Network is a select, international group of high-end retailers, dedicated to the Music Man brand and stocking a wide range of Music Man instruments, with the exclusive opportunity to offer special, limited-edition models with special features that showcase the highest level of quality and workmanship inherent to all Ernie Ball/Music Man instruments.
- A professional, legendary top quality instrument with an excellent tone and unbelievable handling! Crafted with highest precision and attention to detail, by Ernie Ball MUSICMAN in San Louis Obispo, California.
- Finish: Neptune Blue, with black pearloid pickguard and chrome hardware. A special MusicMan PDN finish, warm and transparent, to highlight the fine wood structure.
- Body: African mahogany.
- Neck: Best birdseye maple, roasted. This new special treatment by Music Man allows the performance of the neck to benefit of a thermally modified microstructure: It increases dimensional stability, resistance to temperature and humidity changes and subsequent warping, reduces density while maintaining stiffness for a lighter neck with sufficient strength, yields a microstructure similar to naturally aged woods with lower moisture content, results in more resonance and less damping, eliminates the need for hazardous chemical treatments. Vibrational testing indicates that roasted maple exhibits clearer tone with a stronger fundamental than untreated maple samples. Back of the neck unpainted, hand oiled and waxed for a smooth satin feel. Music Man guitars are particularly so famous among musicians, because of the outstanding quality of their necks. The neck is a pleasure to grab, feels perfect to your hand and plays just fantastic!
