Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Silhouette HSH Trem – Silver Flake Sparkle/#57 of 75

Serial Number: G98694

The Ball family is the last of a dying breed, a family business making premium guitars and basses on the California central coast since 1984. Sterling Ball, alongside his sons Brian and Scott, combine the laser precision of robotics and old-world hand craftsmanship to develop innovative instrument designs that push the boundaries of performance and playability.

Ernie Ball Music Man’s first production guitar achieves BFR status. This special edition Silhouette HHH BFR features a lightweight alder body finished in an exciting Silver Flake Sparkle finish. Upgraded appointments include a nicely figured roasted maple neck, ebony fingerboard accented with cream dot marker inlays that retain the original look and vibe of EBMM’s first guitar. This #57 of 75 units built!
