James Valentine's guitar work has been the focal engine component of Maroon 5 for many years now. Featuring in hits like 'Moves like Jagger,''She will be loved,' and 'This Love,' he has certainly played many different styles of music.
The beautiful Ash body has been ergonomically designed, and subtly tapers from a thicker bottom to a slightly thinner top. This clever idea enables the guitar to hug the body, which lends itself to Valentine's funky rhythmic style. This wedge shape body also distributes the weight without effecting the sound, and allows easier access to the fretboard, and also the ability to achieve complex styles. An additional benefit of this unique shape is that it provides a comfortable playing position, allowing your forearm to be more relaxed and therefore play for longer.
The roasted Maple neck and fretboard is finished in a gun-stock oil and wax rub, and adds an urban look to this guitar. This unique finish also provides the neck with a similar feel and resistance to raw wood. The neck features 22 high-profile, stainless steel frets, and is bolted on to the Ash body via five bolts. This sculpted neck joint enables a smooth access to higher frets, and enhances the ease of playing.
Custom Pickups for a Custom Guitar
The Music Man James Valentine Signature Guitar features two pickups; the custom Humbucker at the neck, and one single coil pickup at the bridge. Another great feature is the push-push master volume and tone knobs for quick and easy control, and an active pre-amp that provides an additional 20DB active gain boost to fatten up solos.
Versatile Sound for Any Set
The advantage of the James Valentine guitar is its ability to achieve many different sounds. Whether its a funky tone you're looking for, or a classic rock feel, this guitar has it all. Explore a whole world of textures by experimenting with various volume settings when using both pickups.
