    Looking to buy my first Majesty. What is a BFR?

    I am in the market for my first ever MM and i decided to go with a Majesty. I was a mahogany/maple body version.. I have got it down to two...

    Either the Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty 6 (Smoked Pearl) or the Ernie Ball Music Man "BFR" Majesty 6 - Bali Blue Burst.

    I notice some Majesty's are BFR and some do not have BFR in the name. Specs are almost the same on most of them? I know BFR stands for Ball Family Reserve. So are the BFR models like a "custom" or? I am a bit confused.

    Thanks for the help!

    The BFRs are limited in number runs, and use materials reserved especially for artists and family members.

    Ball Family Reserve. Like the other guys have said, they make limited production guitars, and they use the finest quality woods and materials.
