You are looking at an Ernie Ball Music Man Limited Edition BFR Valentine Pine Green James Valentine Signature Electric Guitar, serial number G86617. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 8.8 oz.)

Not only is this BFR Valentine in Pine Green a specially-made signature model from James Valentine of Maroon 5, but it's limited to only 63 pieces worldwide. This model features James Valentine signature design, BFR expert craftsmanship and limited appointments, and unique electronics. With quality and rarity like this in an artist signature model, this is a heaven sent axe for guitarists and collectors alike.

James Valentine Signature Design
This axe was custom-made for James Valentine of Maroon 5, crafted by the Ball family to his preferred specifications. James Valentine himself stated that he wanted to make a guitar that was completely new, but that looked classic. The body sports vintage styling, with a design that blends some of the world's most iconic guitar models into one awesome instrument. The body is actually tapered – it's a certain width at the bottom, but it's slimmer at the top where it makes contact with your body. This gives it a comfortable feel and a lighter weight without compromising the sound.

BFR Expert Craftsmanship and Limited Appointments
Ernie Ball Music Man Ball Family Reserve guitars are known for their excruciating detail. It's no wonder they're so limited in quantity. The body of this guitar is carved from ash. It's finished in a powerful, limited edition Pine Green finish with a matching headstock, and sports a white pickguard and pickup ring covers. With all gold-finished hardware, this Valentine comes equipped with a Music Man Modern hardtail bridge with vintage bent steel saddles and Schaller M6-IND locking tuners. The neck is crafted from roasted maple and features hand-fitted white binding along with a 22-fret rosewood fretboard with upgraded elegant pearl block inlays. To make sure you know who's responsible for this sweet axe, each of the 63 Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Valentine guitars features James Valentine's signature on it.

Unique Electronics
James Valentine had some very specific sonic ideals in mind when he created this guitar. He wanted to be able to play Maroon 5's full set with just this one axe. To do that, he needed some real versatile electronics. The Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Valentine guitar features a single-coil bridge pickup in humbucker housing, in addition to a neck humbucker. You can alternate between the two, or use both, thanks to a three-way pickup selector. The push/pull volume knob gives you gain boost, while the tone knob push/pull splits the humbucker for a single-coil sound. There's a plethora of options with this setup.
