Music Man the Valentine Signature Guitar Coming Soon

Music Man - The Valentine
Music Man - The Valentine
Having made quite an impression at NAMM 2016, Ernie Ball Music Man's 'The Valentine' signature guitar is due to be available in August, this year.

This unique guitar, which dons the Valentine name, was designed in collaboration with Maroon 5 guitarist, James Valentine.

The Valentine, available in trans buttermilk, satin natural, trans maroon and trans black, is an incredibly versatile instrument and marries classic aesthetics with innovative engineering.

James was renowned for playing Telecasters and Gibson ES-346 previously, however, his signature guitar from Music Man combines the best of both worlds - suiting Maroon 5's sound down to a T.

The guitar boasts a tapered slab ash-body, two Music Man designed pickups (humbucker in the neck and single coil in the bridge) with a coil tap and boost along with a hard tail bridge. It also has a 25.5" scale, roasted maple neck and oversized headstock.
