The ghost wood color looks great!
Ernie Ball Music Man New for 2020
Nice! I have yet to play one of these basses, but have been curious about them lately. I really like that Tectonic Blue
I just realized it's a sparkle too...very nice!
ooh starry night is back. without the ebony board unfortunately.
Since they’re not using Ash anymore, I wonder what’s under the two burst finishes; an ash top? Or will those actually be the lightest weight ash they could find?
I really like the Tectonic Blue and Ghost Red!
Thanks for posting!
what woods do they use now? "selected hardwoods" is what the website says. that doesn't explain anything.
Where's the stingray classics? Only EBMM I'm interested in. Man, around 2012 they had like 20 varieties of that model. Some AMAZING vintage colors, now it seems all they do is natural and sunburst. WTH? I will grab a used one I think soon.
That short scale in starry night, ME GUSTA.
They put out a statement a few months ago that there is a Swamp Ash shortage and they were going to start using more Basswood & Poplar.
I think it’s more to cut weight since those woods are typically lighter weight but very little visible grain. That’s why there are so many solid colors and no more Natural finish.
Changing Times, Changing Timbers: Why the guitar industry’s swamp ash shortage won’t interrupt our mission to make the world’s best guitars.
Ghost pepper lol .
What fingerboard option goes with each body finish?
The aqua sparkle is still my favorite. Beautiful on every bass, fretboard, I've seen.
My color shifting green on my DD2 big Al is pretty freaking amazing as well.
Beyond that, the first ever bass I gassed over was natural Ash, Maple fretboard, tort pickguard stingray 4. Still a top 5 beautiful factory instrument to me.
I’m looking forward to seeing these basses in person at NAMM starting on Thursday. I need to touch, feel and see them in person.
I wonder if these colors will apply to Bongo or EBMM sterling?
I like the Ghostwood and Ghostpepper.
While EBMM certainly dont need my advice, I agree that the Classic line could do with some (classic?) colour options, creating a fully fledged alternative to the special. IMO
"Ghostwood" or "Ghost of Shoreline Gold"?
Dare I ask how much these go for? The last time I bought a US made StingRay bass it was $849
US Music Man basses start at 2k now.
