Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Valentine Walnut Flame (073)

Limited to just 57 pieces worldwide, this BFR Valentine features a double bound ash body with maple top in a striking Walnut flame finish. The 3-ply white/black/white pickguard matches the white neck and body binding for a complete uniformed look. White pearl block inlays adorn an ebony fretboard atop a roasted figured maple neck. This guitar is also outfitted with a Herringbone skunk strip on the back of the neck for a unique appearance that is not offered on standard models. The electronic package includes Ernie Ball Music Man "Ranger" pickups that replicate a wider frequency range than tradition humbucking and single coil pickups. Each Walnut burst Valentine is autographed by James Valentine, includes a numbered certificate of authenticity and hardshell case.
