Ball in the Family

Wildwoodians, we are downright giddy to announce that we have received the latest offerings from the Ball Family Reserve. For those who are unfamiliar, the Ball Family Reserve is a line of limited-production guitars that showcase exceptional tonewoods, drool-inducing finishes, and extra-elegant designs. Previously, these fine instruments were only available to members of the Ball family and Ernie Ball Music Man's roster of artists. But, Sterling Ball and his sons, Brian and Scott, have graciously offered them to the public.

Each piece in the Ball Family Reserve is lovingly crafted using a combination of precise, state-of-the-art modern manufacturing techniques and time-consuming old-world methods that involve lots of good 'ol-fashioned elbow grease. Each piece is also VERY limited, and once they're gone, they're gone. We are privileged to showcase such rare, exquisite instruments, and we are proud to welcome Ernie Ball Music Man to the Wildwood Family.

Be My Valentine

James Valentine revels in being one of the "out-of-focus guys" on stage with his band, Maroon 5. The spotlight follows his heartthrob frontman Adam Levine everywhere, but that's just how James likes it. Ever the unassuming type, his melodic, tasteful playing is fuel for Maroon 5's hit-making machine. His riffs have formed the backbone of dozens of pop classics, and he uses his Berklee-honed chops allow him to seamlessly blend rock bombast with Chic-esque funk and Steely Dan-tastic jazz. Now, our friends at Ernie Ball Music man have honored his and his endless capacity for crafting earworms by giving him a signature model guitar. Wildwoodians, we are proud to present you with the Valentine.
