- An instrument from the strictly limited "Music Man PDN Emerald Green Sparkle" series. These are guitars and basses, some of them unique and one-of-a-kind, custom-built to individual specs exclusively for the Music Man Premier Dealer network.

- The popular Music Man model in a special modification - now with a slightly larger body and passive Custom DiMarzio pickups for a rich, multi-purpose sound. Created in a close co-operation with Steve Lukather. Crafted with highest precision and attention to detail, by Ernie Ball MUSICMAN in San Louis Obispo, California.
- Finish: Emerald Green Sparkle, with chrome hardware. A special PDN finish, with a beautiful shimmering structure, combining three different sizes of flake. The instrument looks simply awesome, especially in the sunlight.
- Body: Alder. This wood is often preferred because of its excellent resonance characteristics.
- Neck: Best birdseye maple, roasted. This 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.
- Scale: 25.5" (Standard).
- Fretboard: Birdseye maple, roasted. With dot inlays. 12" fretboard radius.
- Frets: 22. Low profile, wide.
- Nut: 41,3 mm, compensated.
- Headstock: Natural.
- Tuners: Schaller M-6 IND locking tuners, placed in the compact 4+2 design typical for Music Man guitars..
- Bridge: Original Music Man vintage tremolo. contributes perfectly to the excellent tone of the instrument and proves itself to stay in tune very well. Has great sustain and bass response.
- Pickups: 1x Custom DiMarzio Transition humbucker in the bridge position & 2x DiMarzio Custom single coils. Very dynamic and absolutely quiet.
- Electronics: Custom Music Man active preamp; 1x volume,1x passive tone (with push-push for gain boost), 5-way pickup switch.
- Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftsmanship, handling and sound!
