Ernie Ball Music Man is excited to announce the 2020 Valentine guitar collection. This collection is the latest iteration of James Valentine’s signature model and features a standard lightweight slab ash body, stunning figured roasted neck, and custom Ernie Ball Music Man electronics that perfectly complement the Valentine’s already dynamic and articulate signature tone.
For 2020, we’re introducing three new, striking finishes including Classic Natural, Shell Pink, and TV Yellow.
The translucent finish on the Classic Natural Valentine allows each and every grain on the wood to shine through — making each guitar uniquely its own. Joined by a black pickguard and all chrome hardware.
Finished with the most subtle shades of pink, the Shell Pink Valentine is a unique take on a neutral-toned guitar. With its roasted maple neck, white pickguard, and chrome hardware, each component beautifully blends together making a stunning overall design. We’re sure you’ll have trouble taking your eye off of it.
In the early days of black and white television, bright white objects would overwhelm the cameras and get lost on screen. Then came the idea to paint the objects yellow, minimizing the harsh exposure while still appearing white on the screen. Thus, the shade TV Yellow was born. Thanks to modern advancement, you get to enjoy the color in its truest form. The TV Yellow ash body is adorned with a shell pickguard and roasted maple neck.
