New John Petrucci and Albert Lee guitars
Ernie Ball Music Man has announced a pair of high-end signature electric guitars as part of its Ball Family Reserve range.
The Albert Lee BFR takes the existing Music Man Albert Lee signature model as a blueprint. Weighing in at just 6 lbs 11 oz, the six-string features a southern ash body with a book-matched maple top, a mahogany ‘tone block’ and a maple neck.
The John Petrucci Baritone BFR mirrors much of the spec of the Dream Theater guitarist’s Music Man signature electric, but is the first Music Man to feature a 27.5-inch scale length.
Retailing at $4199 stateside, the Petrucci Baritone is equipped with DiMarzio pickups, an alder body with a book-matched maple top and a mahogany ‘tone block’.
In addition, selected Ball Family Reserve instruments are now available in tobacco, amethyst and emerald burst finishes.
