- A very versatile instrument with an excellent tone and unbelievably ergonomic handling - created in a close co-operation with Steve Lukather. There must be serious reasons why Steve uses it in his numerous studio jobs, as well as in all of his live concerts!
- Crafted with highest precision and attention to detail, by Ernie Ball MUSICMAN in San Louis Obispo, California.
- Finish: Caramel Apple Delight, with chrome hardware - changing the color depending on the light angle. Dargie Delight II limited edition has been designed by Scott "Dargie" Ball, son of Ernie Ball / Music Man boss Sterling Ball, and was available for ordering till Aug. 13th, 2009.
- Body: Alder - this wood is often preferred because of its excellent resonance characteristics.
- Neck: Select Maple - 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!
- Scale: 25.5" - Standard.
- Fretboard: Rosewood - with a nice, even wood grain, which is hard to find nowadays, even on Music Man guitars. A medium-flat 12“ fretboard radius supports fast playing and easy string bending.
- Frets: 22, low profile, wide - a perfect fretjob, another famous feature on Music Man USA guitars.
- Nut: 42 mm - Standard.
- Headstock: Matching the body color (which is normally an option subject to an upcharge on Music Man instruments).
- Tuners: Schaller M-6 IND locking tuners - placed in the compact 4+2 design typical for Music Man guitars. Always requested by professional artists, these tuners are a must-have for the demanding musician. The key to their design is eliminating wraps around the string post, which can cause string slippage and tuning problems. Simply loosen the thumbwheel located on the back, feed the string through the post, lock the thumbwheel tight, cut off the remaining string, tune up and you’re finished – better tuning stability and no more restringing nightmares.
- 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: EMG 85 active humbucker (bridge) and 2x EMG SLV active single coils. By the way, the EMG SLV pickups have been developed by EMG exclusively for this guitar model, after exact specifications by Steve Lukather. They are normally not available for sale separately, only coming factory-installed in the Music Man Luke, or alternatively in the expensive EMG SL20 prewired Strat pickup board or upon special order. The pickups' sound is very warm and lively (especially, in comparison with other active pickups). They are dynamic and absolutely quiet at the same time, and feature a very low electricity consumption: A 9V battery lasts for many months to several years, depending on your playing time, because of the very efficient electronics which are only activated when a guitar cable is plugged in. The battery change is a breeze, due to the separate battery holder on the back.
- Alternatively, upon request of the purchaser, we can also perform a professional installation of a different pickup combination, e.g. any DiMarzio, EMG or Seymour Duncan etc. (Very fair prices per pickup swap). Furthermore, we offer installation of active boost and EQ circuits like EMG Afterburner, PA-2, SPC, RPC, VMC, EXG etc. Please ask for details if interested.
- Special feature: This instrument comes with the factory-installed (expensive) optional piezo bridge - with a built-in piezo preamp and a dedicated 2 band EQ plus a separate balance control knob!
- Electronics: 1x Magnetic Volume, 1x Magnetic Tone, 1x Piezo Volume, 3-way magnetic/both/piezo-switch, 5-way pickup switch, separate and combined outputs for Magnetic and Piezo! Therefore, it can be used with mono or stereo cords, in a total of 4 different connection modes.
- Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftmanship, handling and sound!
- The guitar comes with a high-quality original Music Man USA hardshell case.
