2006 Ernie Ball Music Man 20th Anniversary Silhouette


Located in Portland, OR


For your consideration a 2006 Ernie Ball Music Man 20th Anniversary Silhouette with a “Limited Edition Sunburst” finish! In 1971 Forrest White and Tom Walker formed Tri-Sonix, INC. Forrest White had been working with Leo Fender since 1954, at first as a plant manager, eventually becoming the Vice President of Fender. Leo was a silent partner in the formative years because he was still under his ten year non-compete contract from selling Fender to CBS. After briefly being called Musitek, INC, they settled on the name Music Man. The board of the company voted Leo Fender President of Music Man in 1975! Ernie Ball would acquire the company in 1984. As they started to produce more new models (one being the Silhouette) they became more widely recognized!

Specs! This guitar is all original, in very good condition and comes with its original hard shell case. Chrome Schaller Locking tuners. Inonation-compensated Tusq nut with a 1-5/8″ width. Birdseye maple neck with a depth of .82″ at the first fret. and .89″ at the twelfth fret. It has a 25.5″ scale length. Maple fingerboard with a 10″ radius. Action measures 4/64″ straight across. 24 medium jumbo frets in excellent condition. Alder body with a 3 ply figured maple top finished in their “Limited Edition Sunburst”. Mahogany “Tone Block” in center of body. Two custom Dimarzio humbuckers with original wiring (3 way pick up selector, 3 way mag/piezo selector and Dual output). Music Man hard-tail piece with piezo saddles. Weighs 7 pounds and 12 ounces.

This is 1 of only 13 made with Piezo saddles! Would be in excellent condition if not for two small dings on the lower bout. Excellent condition frets should have you rocking in tune for years! 4/64″ action should make even your fastest licks a breeze to play. Modern appointments like locking tuners and 24 frets give this guitar more range. Lovely birdseye maple neck. Dual outputs give you tons of options and tonal flexibility. Amazing playing and sounding guitar!
