The new multiscale fretboard features 24 stainless steel frets and measures 27” on the bass side with a standard scale length of 25.5” on the treble side. This multi-scale design allows for a longer string length providing a comfortable amount of tension on the bass strings, with a traditional feel on the treble side for fluid string bends and solos.
The Mystic Dream finish first appeared on the Ernie Ball Music Man signature JP6 guitar released in 2001. This unique metallic color shift finish flips between dark green and purple hues depending on the direct light. Proving to be one of the most popular signature color options, it has been brought back for the Majesty 8 debut.
With a multiscale instrument, the bass side of the fretboard facilitates a longer scale length while the treble side remains at a standard scale. For this reason, the hardtail bridge is set at an angle to increase the string length of the bass strings, which reduces the amount of tension when using larger gauge strings.
The Majesty 8 string will be offered in a limited quantity of 100 pieces. Each Majesty's is numbered #1 through #100, and comes with an autographed certificate of authenticity.
