- 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.
- Ball Family Reserve - a strictly limited run of instruments, built using carefully selected finest tone woods and previously reserved for the Ball Family and friends only!
- Finish: Black Sugar - a special finish with a very fine grain, subtly shimmering. The pictures just do not do it full justice. The instrument looks simply awesome! With chrome hardware.
- Body: Ash.
- Neck: 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. 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: 34" - Standard long scale.
- Fretboard: Ebony - pitch black, with a very even structure. With mother of pearl dot inlays and BFR inlay at the 12th fret.
- Frets: 21, high profile, narrow width - a perfect fretjob, another famous feature on Music Man USA guitars.
- Nut: 44,5 mm.
- Tuners: Schaller BM - placed in the 4+1 design.
- Bridge: Original Music Man USA - chrome plated, hardened steel bridge plate.
- Pickups: Original Music Man USA humbucker - with alnico pole pieces and additional phantom coil to cancel hum in all 3 positions (serial, parallel and single coil). A classic among the bass pickups, famous for its relentless punch and rocking character.
- Electronics: 1x volume, 1x treble, 1x mid, 1x bass, 3-way switch.
- Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftsmanship, handling and sound!
- The bass comes with a high-quality original Music Man USA formfit hardshell case, certificate of authenticity and all factory accessoires.
