    Pete DuBaldo's Diablo Blue Exclusive Run - The Return of Rosewood!

    Here's an official heads-up for some of you who may not have seen the teasers on our Facebook page!

    The Diablo Blue exclusive run was designed by Pete DuBaldo (hey, that's me!) from DuBaldo Music Center in collaboration with Ernie Ball Music Man. A tremendous thanks to the entire Ball Family & staff at the MusicMan factory who graciously spent a lot of time helping me create this awesome exclusive run.

    While visiting the Ernie Ball Music Man factory earlier this year I selected a new pearl/metallic blue with a high-gloss finish, accompanied by a never before used hand-rubbed blue stain for models with maple tops.

    The guitars in this exclusive run all feature solid rosewood necks with ebony fretboards and stainless steel frets. The basses in this exclusive run feature roasted maple necks with ebony fingerboards and stainless steel frets. Standard body woods, inlays, and electronics are complimented by chrome hardware.

    Our first dealer-exclusive run is limited to just 5 pieces for each model, and yes, they include a certificate of authenticity.

    The naming of the color "Diablo" blue is a humorous play on how people commonly mispronounce the DuBaldo family name - and yes, I'm serious - it happens on a weekly basis!

    These instruments will be arriving from now through the next 3 months give or thereabouts.

    Estimated instrument arrival schedule:

    October and early November - JP15 & Axis Semi-Hollow

    November - Luke 3 HH & StingRay Special Basses

    December - JP6 w/ piezo & JP inlays (original model)

    Wow Pete, that's really great!!! Congrats!!!!

    So, question, since it's a US exclusive, can you still not sell international, or is this different, just curious.

    Duuude, they're doing a semi-hollow for this run? That's cool. If it was in the budget I would be all over the semi.

    Man, if I hadn't just dropped 6K on brass instruments in the past 4 months...

    But, which one to get???

    Will they all have figured maple tops, or is that just limited to the guitars that usually have them?

    The body woods are all standard, so only the JP15 and Axis Semi-Hollow have maple tops.

    Please let us know when we can hit the buy button. Also, instead of the normal pearl fretmarkers on the fretboard you should have made `D`:s and a bad ass Dubaldo Reserve 12th fret inlay I totally get why EBMM doesn`t want that and these will sell like Budweiser on Superbowl anyway
