Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Majesty Electric Guitar with Autographed Back Plate Sahara Burst

Ernie Ball

Ball Family Reserve is a celebration of heritage in instrument craftsmanship, which features some of the finest figured tone woods and finishes available. These rare pieces are offered in limited production runs that present instruments to the public that were previously reserved only for family and loyal artists.

The Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Majesty Custom Electric Guitar has some key upgrades compared to the standard Majesty model. To begin with, its backplate is hand-signed by John Petrucci. Next, its unique all-mahogany body with roasted flame maple shield and striking Sahana Burst finish is a showstopper. Thirdly, this BFR Majesty features a neck-through design with an ultra-thin polyester finish, polished ebony fretboard, and Schaller locking tuners. A Music Man John Petrucci tremolo with chrome hardware completes the overall aesthetic package of this masterpiece that marries beauty, playability and signature tone. Includes hardshell case.
