Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Valentine – Baby Blue/Signed #40 of 68

Serial Number: G89233
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.
Limited to just 68 pieces worldwide, this BFR Valentine features custom Baby Blue finish. White pearl block inlays adorn a rosewood fretboard atop a roasted and premium figured maple neck. This guitar is also outfitted with a matching headstock and white neck binding, both features not offered on standard models. Each Baby Blue Valentine is autographed by James Valentine, includes a numbered certificate of authenticity and hardshell case.
