Though the company was started in 1972 by Leo Fender, Tom Walker, and Forrest White, Ernie Ball Music Man guitars get their namesake from a 1984 sale to Ernie Ball.
It was thanks to this partnership that helped Music Man guitars rise from relative obscurity and become a go-to guitar for a wide range of now-iconic musicians like Eddie Van Halen and modern stars like Bruno Mars.
Today, Ernie Ball Music Man instruments stand out thanks to their focus on high quality electronics and comfortable-to-play necks. Each guitar goes through a meticulous handcrafting and precise millworking process - the end result of which is a top-of-the-line guitar.
On the electronics side, Ernie Ball Music Man uses only top-shelf pickups from today's most popular pickup makers or their own in-house electronics to ensure quality. Specifically, Music Man's custom humbuckers are well-known for their detail and distinct punch.
Some of the most popular Ernie Ball Music Man guitar series include the Sting Ray and John Petrucci lines.
