Ernie Ball Music Man Big Al SSS Sugar Roasted Maple Black

Ernie Ball Music Man Big Al SSS Sugar Roasted Maple Black

Item: EB940BSRE01

Music Man's Big Al Bass, similar in style and shape to Albert Lee's signature guitar, is the most unique bass to appear in recent years. The birdseye maple sugar roasted neck is long and lean, fast, and very easy on the hand, and, check out that retro shape. Features include a select hardwood body, ebony fretboard, and a single pickup in the bridge position with a 3-band active preamp for a wide variety of sounds. The benefits of a thermally modified neck include stability and resistance to temperature and humidity changes, increased resistance to warping, a lighter neck with suffcient strength, more resonance and a clearer tone. Umm, gotta get me some sugar!
