Behold! The Ernie Ball Music Man 2017 lineup has been unveiled. Bask in the glory of 27—27—new finishes on the company’s most popular models, including a reimagining of the Majesty. The new Majesty “Monarchy” comes in super sick transparent finishes with a flamed maple “shield,” and a gloss front/matte back arrangement. The purple and blue ones look damn tasty.
Other revamped models include the polarizing St. Vincent signature, the JP15, and a handful of Stingray basses. Everyone loves to hate on the St. Vincent; well, you’re all insane. I think it’s a brilliantly unique guitar and it looks stunning all murdered out for 2017. The JP15 is coming with a new “teal burst” finish and roasted maple neck and fretboard. You’ll also have your choice between a flamed or quilted maple top. Peep the complete lineup below:

I’m actually super stoked on this announcement, even though I’m a lefty who never gets to enjoy anything in the guitar world. It’s a real toss-up between the JP15 in teal and the all-black St. Vincent for me. What say you, gear geeks?
