What we say:
Ernie Ball Music Man turn their attention to Maroon 5’s James Valentine to bring a guitar that could truly be one of the most versatile guitars around.
Maroon 5's axeman has opted for a tasteful double-cut design which is both familiar and unique. There is no specific indication from the shape about what style of music this is designed for and we think that’s one of the guitar’s many strengths! It’s a blank page for your creativity.
The slightly ‘wedged’ slab body is made out of Ash for great resonance and harmonic overtones. The bolted-on roasted Maple neck (joined with Music Man’s customary 5 bolts for strength and alignment) has a fantastic carve and wonderful feel. Roasted Maple looks beautiful for sure, but it feels incredible and is light and resonant. Every little detail plays it’s part!
The headstock is actually slightly larger than Music Man normally make and it looks great! The larger size helps to balance the look of the instrument out. The trademark ‘4+2’ tuner configuration is still present and correct though!
Although the Music Man James Valentine STD appears to have two humbuckers, a closer glance reveals that the bridge unit is in fact a single coil. This is a nice surprise and works particularly well. It's a springy, expressive sounding instrument that can turn its hand to a variety of genres. A custom preamp supplies a gain boost (a push/push in the volume knob) and a coil split push/push in the tone knob adds further variety.
This beautiful guitar, available here in Toluca Lake Blue, will appeal to many more musicians than just Maroon 5 fans: it is a fantastic player with a large palette of great tones on offer.
