Ernie Ball has released the Music Man Reflex, which they were showing off at their booth during this summer’s NAMM show in Nashville. The bass is an evolution of the 25th Anniversary Bass, and features multiple pickup options. Choose from a standard single humbucker, dual humbuckers, or a humbucker plus two single-coils to suit your tone interests. The bass also features the comprehensive electronics system that is found on the 25th Anniversary model, which features 2-way push buttons that let you select your pickups as well as choose between active or passive.
The body is made of ash with a maple top and a mahogany tone block. The neck is also made of select maple featuring either a maple or rosewood fingerboard.
