New for 2008, Ernie Ball Music Man is proud to introduce a fresh trio of instruments — all exquisitely designed and manufactured in the United States using the same careful hand and familiar attention to detail that has made the brand famous. Sure to strike a chord with any premium guitar enthusiast, these new models include the Sterling 5, the Bongo 6 and the Limited Edition 2008.

Limited Edition 2008 The latest installment in the highly sought after Limited Edition Series, the exclusive characteristics of the 2008 model (pictured) include a brand new, warm Sequoia Gold finish that is richly complemented by opulent gold hardware. A limited edition Mother of Pearl inlay will adorn the 12th fret, enhancing the overall appeal and allure. Also included, a custom Lizardback case lined with a plush golden fabric is sure to keep this trophy instrument well-padded and secure regardless of your whereabouts. Available for a limited time, the 2008 Limited Edition enhancements will be available on all Music Man instruments.



Sterling 5 The newest addition to the 5-string family, the Sterling 5 is a marriage of sleek design and comfort. Featuring a compact body with a faster profile (maple or rosewood) neck, sculpted neck joint and a smaller profile 4+1 headstock configuration, the Sterling 5 also boasts an ash body, 3 band active EQ and Music Man's proprietary massive humbucking pickup. Available in ceramic humbucking, double-humbucking and humbucking-single pickup configurations, this bass packs a serious punch that any player will appreciate.

Bongo 6 Featuring a unique body and neck concept designed in conjunction with BMW U.S.A., the Bongo 6 marks the exciting debut of Ernie Ball Music Man's first full-scale 6-string bass. Flaunting a slender-profile neck and string spacing that's equivalent to the company's popular Bongo and Stingray 5 Series instruments, the Bongo 6 has a 34" scale, bolt-on neck configuration and 24 frets as well as a basswood body, 18-volt preamp, 4 band EQ and neodymium magnets that provide an unparalleled tone and flexibility.
