The Music Man Valentine premiered at NAMM 2016 and walked away with the 'Best in Show' award, and for good reason. It's incredible! But at the best part of £2500 it's a bit out of reach for most players, the Music Man Sterling JV60 offers everyone the chance to enjoy this incredible guitar.
Very heavily inspired by the classic Telecaster design, the Sterling Valentine features a Swamp Ash body, finished in Transparent Buttermilk. The simple design is perfectly balanced and brings a vintage vibe to this new guitar.
The roasted Maple neck and fretboard are absolute heaven and have a 12" radius and 25.5" scale length, it feels just sublime. So smooth underhand and offering a great, super comfortable platform for both lead and rhythm playing.
This is a truly versatile guitar, featuring a Music Man Sterling 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 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 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
