Ernie Ball Music Man
Ernie Ball reintroduced their popular
25th Anniversary guitar and bass
models as production models. The
Reflex bass (street $1925-$2345)
is available with one, two, or three
pickup options and features a push-button active/passive selector and a
push-button series/parallel selector
in multi-pickup configurations. The
Reflex guitar (street $1925-$2065)
features two DiMarzio custom
humbuckers and is available with
hardtail or tremolo bridge.
These seafoam green and black Rick Vito Signature prototypes (direct $TBA) feature
P- 90 neck pickups and vintage Supro-style bridge single-coils that use both pole
pieces and a blade. Controls include Volume, Tone, Bass Contour, and pickup Blend.
The final model will feature binding and other minor cosmetic changes.
The Wechter Pathmaker SB Maple (MSRP $1865) is the first
production model guitar to feature Seymour Duncan Triple Shot
pickup mounting rings, which have two small sliders that turn
each coil on or off. The Pathmaker also features a Graph Tech
Acousti-Phonic saddle pickup system.
