Overview

The Music Man 25th Anniversary guitar features a lightweight body, dramatic styling, and state-of-the-art electronics not found on any other instrument. The epitome of form and function, this new anniversary guitar is starts with body slightly larger than the Axis, Music Man's most popular guitar. A magical blend of chambered basswood body with bookmatched figured maple top for brightness, and mahogany tone block for extra resonance that produces a rich, lively sound with a tight, defined low end. The 25th Anniversary sports two DiMarzio custom humbucking pickups, offering 10 very distinct sounds. Utilizing a 5-way lever pickup selector and series/parallel toggle switch, you can custom shape and color your tonal options like never before. The Music Man design team has engineered optimal contours, weight and balance, making this instrument very comfortable to play.

Thank You Music Man!

By Fishbone

from LaGrange, Georgia

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar:

I waited two months to get this 25th Anniversary and it was worth it! This guitar is absolutely amazing. The birdseye maple neck is smoother than silk and it plays like a dream. No setup needed for this guitar, mine was perfect right out of the box. The resonance, tone and sustain is incredible. Play this one time before you buy anything else! This guitar deserves 5+ rating.

The Only Guitar You'll Ever Need

By Aner

from New York, New York

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar:

I just bought this guitar last week and I can easily say that it is the greatest guitar I have ever played. My top is a hybrid of quilt and flame maple, the neck is rose wood and it's a hard tail bridge. This guitar is the most versatile guitar I have ever played. It has 10 different settings that go from the twangy Strat, to the thick and fat Les Pauls. It's a beauty and if you have thought about buying it, then DO IT!!!

Diamond in the Rough? Best Kept Secret?

By Diatarussoulbane

from Downey, California

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar:

Is this guitar a diamond in the rough? No, such an analogy suggests that the guitar requires further polishing and refinement, but is it one of the finest kept secrets in the guitar world? Absolutely. I own one with a Hardtail, Flamed Top, with a Rosewood Fingerboard, and must say, as an instrument, this guitar is the paragon of tone, quality, and versatility. 5 Way switching with Series/Parallel offers 10 incredible and distinct sounds, along with Music Man's unmatched craftsmanship (100% in the USA by the way). Small details make this guitar even better. Schaller locking tuners, adjusted Truss Rod adjustment at the Neck Pup, Compensated Nut, String-Through Body design. Just simply flawless. The Wax/Gunstock oil finish on the maple neck is incredibly responsive and smooth, and the figuring on the top is superb. With variations between Hardtail/Trem, Rosewood/Maple FB, and Quilt/Flame top, this guitar is sure to satisfy anyone's particular needs. You can only do this guitar justice by trying it yourself. It can handle gobs of gain/distortion VERY well without losing any of its tonal qualities and the wonderful sustain offered by the chambered basswood body, and on clean sounds you can go from bright, honky Fendery-like sounds to deep plush rhythm humbucking tones. Very, versatile. There's no boast here. A very softspoken guitar, but all that jazz is in its tone.

Great guitar! Custom Shop Quality!

By Gil Velez

from Morris Plains, NJ

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar:

What a dream to play. This guitar has become my main rig. Nicely priced alongside other higher end guitars like Les Pauls and PRS but way more custom. The chambered body, quilt/flame top, and maple neck are quite distinct. Has a nice airy tone due to the chambered body but still rocks hard due to the tone block underneath the humbuckers. You can make this guitar sing like a strat or growl like a Les Paul with the various 5 way (Series and Parallel) configs...

Awesome

By Joe

from Greensboro, NC

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar:

Unbelievable guitar. The most comfortable neck ever. Excellent workmanship and quality. Multiple sounds with a single guitar. I can't put it down. Well worth the money. Love the birds eye maple! The pickups are very responsive and deliver great clean sounds through metal. I don't regret this purchase.
