We’re very excited to announce that our collaboration with Maroon 5 guitarist, James Valentine, has won “Best in Show” at the 2016 National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM).

The yearly NAMM trade show highlights the newest innovations in musical products, and is attended by musical instrument businesses and vendors from around the world. It is a huge honor to be recognized by this organization and our peers.

We’d like to thank NAMM, James Valentine, and the Ernie Ball Music Man family who made this gorgeous guitar possible.
