Ernie Ball Debuts Spring Collection

Ernie Ball has debuted 27 models that are part of the Music Man 2017 product line, which includes the Monarchy Series John Petrucci Majesty guitars, 30th Anniversary StingRay5 bass and the Cutlass guitar.

New for 2017, the Monarchy Series John Petrucci Majesty guitars feature a highly flamed maple shield seated in an African mahogany body. While previous models have a completely matte finish, the Monarchy series features a glossy finish on the front and a matte finish on the back. Equipped with DiMarzio Sonic Ecstasy pickups and a piezo bridge, the Monarchy series offer a versatile palette of tones. The Monarchy series is available in four finishes: Black Knight, Imperial Blue, Majestic Purple and Royal Red, in both six- and seven-string configurations.

Ernie Ball's 30th Anniversary StingRay5 sports a transparent buttercream finish and each neck features roasted figured maple. The preamp and pickup are exclusive to this anniversary model, providing both ample punch and articulation. Each instrument ships with a red tortoise shell pickguard and a certificate of authenticity.

The Cutlass guitar pays homage to the vintage styling and cosmetic appeal of Leo Fender's original Music Man models. Updated vintage spec electronics, super smooth vintage tremolo system, and lightweight alder bodies are welcome refinements to these new modern renditions. The Cutlass guitar is available in Charcoal Frost and Coral Red finishes.
