Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty BFR 7-String Craftsmanship

Stunning Craftsmanship With Premium Tonewoods

Every aspect of the Majesty BFR has been meticulously executed using only the finest materials available. The guitar features a stunning top carved from either quilted or burled maple, lending a beautiful visual flourish to its brilliant sonic resonance. Beneath, the body wings are constructed from tonally superior alder or black limba. A rock-solid neck-through design incorporates a Honduran mahogany core with a roasted flamed maple neck for unparalleled sustain and clarity—not to mention an absolutely incredible look.

Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty BFR 7-String DiMarzio Pickups

DiMarzio Pickups Unlock Endless Tonal Possibilities

At the heart of the Majesty BFR’s versatile voice are two signature DiMarzio humbuckers. The Rainmaker in the neck position excels at everything from liquid leads to chunky rhythms. Down south, the Dreamcatcher bridge delivers searing highs and a focused midrange for slicing solos and heavy riffing, jelling well with high-gain amp tones for harmonically complex, articulate distortion. Between the pair, these pickups provide an incredible palette of sounds covering metal, rock, blues and beyond. Tap into the push/pull volume control to engage a 20dB boost for even more tonal range.

In addition to its traditional magnetic humbuckers, the Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty BFR 7-string boasts Fishman’s acclaimed Powerbridge piezo system, opening up a world of acoustic and blended tones. The piezo saddles accurately reproduce the natural resonance of the guitar’s body, while onboard preamp controls allow you to dial in the perfect mix of piezo and electric sound. Whether you want to layer in percussive acoustic textures or perform with pure resonant vibrations, Powerbridge empowers you with inspiring versatility.
