The Music Man Valentine Natural Satin has an Ash Body, an awesome Select Roasted Maple Neck and Fretboard, Schaller M6-IND Locking Tuners, Music Man® custom wound staggered pole piece single coil (bridge) and humbucker with chrome covers (neck).
Best known for his lead work for chart topping pop-rock band Maroon 5, James Valentine has teamed up with Music Man guitars to design a brand new signature line. A subtle combination of classic and modern features, featuring a custom wound staggered pole piece single-coil in the bridge position and a humbucker in the neck.
A slab ash body twinned with a maple neck is a wood combination we're all too familiar with, however this time we've got a roasted maple neck which adds that extra stability and class. Schaller locking tuners and a custom active pre-amp add that modern twist, to what appears to be a vintage inspired instrument.
