Ernie Ball Music Man announced their partnership with Rabea Massaad last April with the promise of a signature model coming sometime in the future. While it’s not available just yet, Ernie Ball Music Man has finally unveiled the Massaad model in a brand new video!


The Rabea Massaad Artist Series Sabre includes a custom tapered neck carve, a recessed lower horn for better upper fret access, and glow-in-the-dark side dot markers. The Sabre is also equipped with a custom Ernie Ball Music Man tremolo, Rabea Massaad signature Bare Knuckle “Silo” humbuckers, and push-push electronics for access to single-coil tones. All we know so far is that Ernie Ball Music Man plans to make the guitar available sometime this spring.

“To be a part of the Ernie Ball Music Man family is something I never thought I’d be able to say,” said Massaad at the time of his signing. “Being on the back of the pack alongside so many musicians I’ve looked up to since I started out and having a Music Man guitar with my name on it is truly a pinch myself feeling I don’t think will ever pass. Thank you for welcoming me with open arms. I promise to make you guys proud.”

“We are honored and thrilled to welcome Rabea Massaad to the Ernie Ball Music Man family of artists,” added Brian Ball in April 2023. “As a world-renowned musician, his passion for music and innovative approach to guitar playing is a perfect match for our company’s commitment to providing the best tools for artists to express themselves.

“We are excited to collaborate with Rabea in developing new products and are looking forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
