New Ball's Family Reserve Ivory White Valentine! This beautiful guitar features a Gold Anodized pickguard and gold hardware to match the striking Ivory White! This one being something a little bit special is signed by James Valentine himself, which is a delightful little bonus for those of you that are fans of top 40 botherers Maroon 5.
The select-roasted Maple neck and fretboard have a 10" radius and 25.5" scale length, finished in a blend of gun oil and hand-rubbed special wax it feels just sublime.
The Music Man Valentine is a truly versatile guitar, featuring a Music Man custom wound single coil at the bridge and a humbucker at the neck, you get a really nice of balance of tones, great for adding texture and flavour. With a gain boost on the volume pot you can bump up for solos and lead licks, it's a great feature that will massively benefit the gigging musician. The tone control doubles up as a coil-tap to split the humbucker and provide more glistening single coil tones.
The Valentine has the air of a guitar that has a rich history, it feels natural and perfectly thought out. It might be a new guitar but it will around for a long time!View Full Specs
