You are looking at an Ernie Ball Music Man Limited Edition Ball Family Reserve Valentine James Valentine Signature Electric Guitar, serial number G81869. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 6.2 oz.)

Limited to only 92 pieces, the Ernie Ball Music Man Limited Edition BFR Valentine offers a truly elegant take on the Maroon 5 guitarist's signature EBMM guitar. It comes dressed in a special edition Ivory White finish that's complemented by crisp white neck binding, white dot fretboard inlays, classy all-gold hardware, and a striking gold anodized pickguard. Each model includes a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and each back plate has been personally signed by James Valentine himself.

Just as the standard model, the BFR Valentine sports a unique, comfortable "wedge"-shaped slab ash body, an exquisitely figured roasted maple neck, and a 10"-radius, 22-fret maple fingerboard. With all the versatility of the standard Valentine model, the BFR Valentine is ready to cover all the sonic territory that you need thanks to a custom wound Music Man single-coil pickup with staggered pole pieces in the bridge position and a custom Music Man humbucker in the neck position. Adding to the tonal flexibility of this guitar, the electronics include a 3-way custom wired lever pickup selector and a Custom Music Man active preamp featuring a passive tone control with coil-tapping for custom split pickup configurations and a push/push volume control with built-in +20 dB gain boost for when you need some extra sonic horsepower. High-quality, performance-ready gold hardware includes a Music Man Modern hardtail bridge with vintage bent steel saddles and a set of Schaller locking tuners. Comes complete with hardshell case.
