    Ernie Ball Music Man New for 2021

    Forest Green takes the cake for me! Amethyst Sparkle looks good too with the gold hardware but I feel like I need to see that one in real life first. I would really have liked Forest Green to come with a RW/Ebony Fretboard and gold hardware though!

    Raspberry Burst and Snowy Night have matching head stocks but I wish they offered matching head stocks with the other colours as well.

    Well...I like the 2020 colors better, I was waiting to look at the new offerings before I pulled the trigger on a fretted 5r. I’m going to look for a dropped copper or a charcoal sparkle before they’re gone.

    Off topic: when I went to a local music store last Saturday to pick a few items, the owner told me that EBMM has been slow filling orders because of covid. Covid has really hit SoCal hard, also the state requires social distancing in the manufacturing process. I understand the necessity, but it does slow things down.

    Man that Amethyst color is nice. Uh oh! Don’t like that Gold hardware a whole lot but I could probably ignore it

    Seconded on the forest green.

    If I were after one of these, that would be my choice.

    Kind of funny, they listed the name of the new green color incorrectly for 4 strings, twice, in the big blog post announcement.

    It’s supposed to be “Frost Green Pearl”, not “Forest Green”.

    That purple sparkle is nice but it needs a matching headstock like the snowy night has

    Those look so nice, especially Snowy Night! I'm scared to look at how much they cost.

    How about that new Bongo colour? I kind of wish this was an option for a Stingray:

  14. I’m worried the Sterling is going to be discontinued....

    I really don’t like any of those. Oh well, tons of used MM basses available.

    I have a theory about that. I think they are planning to do something like a Sterling Special later in the year and perhaps because they don't sell a ton of them, maybe they have enough to satisfy current orders for the next while. So while they are discontinued right now, maybe they have plans to release the new version of the Sterling later in the year with some new colours to go with it. They also said that there would be some sort of new model coming in late 2021 so perhaps that could be related to the current status of the Sterling.

  17. K, time to go to the local hardware store for some rattlecan paint to redo my basses!

    don't worry... just kidding....
     
  18. I think it would be cool if they made a Mariposa bass. :drool:

    Hopefully the new models get announced this week. I’m trying to make some purchasing decisions and I wanted to wait until they got announced.

    I don't think they will be announced for a while. I believe I recall hearing that it was going to be a Q3 or Q4 announcement so whatever it is is probably still in development.
