For more than three decades, every single Ernie Ball Music Man instrument has been meticulously crafted right here in our San Luis Obispo, California factory. From initial concepts and design work through milling, sanding, painting and ultimately setup, every piece receives the care and attention to detail that we would put into creating instruments for ourselves. We build tools for artists, and ours is a labor of love.
Our factory and adjoining headquarters, located on California’s beautiful Central Coast, has become a bit of a landmark for players who know and appreciate the quality of our guitars and basses. People regularly make pilgrimages to come and see the factory for themselves, only to find out that we aren’t open to the public. In order to give people the inside look they want so much, we’ve created this short film which brings you along on a tour through the Ernie Ball Music Man factory.
