    Question Interesting, I'll say, but it's a combination of guitars

    So I saw the post and the corresponding post (not suppose to have comments) about the guitar, so I too a look for myself. This one looks like an AL mash up.

    Used Ernie Ball Music Man Albert Lee Ball Family Reserve | Reverb

    It looks like an early AL HH BFR neck on an Emerald Green AL MM90's. X your right it's pretty high priced for being a bit beat up. It probably had an maple neck on it originally and the seller wanted the maple neck for the AL HH.

    Looks like it sold. No idea if it was a mash-up, but I thought it was a cool piece despite the dings and scratches.

    Agreed it was a cool piece, it might have been interesting to know the origins and what the deal was with it.

    I'm sure someone here snagged it, just for the MM90 option alone and the Emerald Green Sparkle finish.

    Fess up, who got it?????

    Haha. I'm really after a BFR anyway, and I just got back from the family vacation, so I'm really out of money.

    That guitar came that way from the factory, actually. I don't have information on who it went to but it is all original based on the information I can see. Sweet guitar, wish I bought it.

    Hey people! I am the dude who bought the green sparkle AL, and this is my first post on the forum.

    As AJ said, the guitar came from the factory with a rosewood neck and three MM90s. It was born on October 20, 2010. It was sold by the Tone Shop in Dallas, and after speaking with them, it was apparently some sort of special order and has been owned by one of the shop owners for the past 8 years. He recently traded it in for a G&L Doheny.

    Notwithstanding the headstock ding, and a couple of scratches on the back, it's in pretty great condition. It literally showed up in the mail about an hour ago, so I don't have too many thoughts on how it plays sounds, but it is pretty. To demonstrate my focus on the important things about guitar, all I have really done is take some pictures.



    This is my first Music Man, but I have been pining for one for years. I decided I wanted an AL quite a while ago, but I resolved to wait until I found one that I really thought was cool. This is that guitar.

    Anyone know where I can get a replacement tip for the tremolo arm?
