Sterling By Musicman JV60 James Valentine Guitar - Trans Buttermilk
The Musicman by Sterling James Valentine JV60 Signature Guitar has been designed in conjunction with the Maroon 5 guitarist and features a host of unique appointments in a package that is new, yet has instant familiarity.
At the heart of the guitar is a Mississippi Swamp Ash double cutaway slab body that delivers superb comfort whilst having a classy visual quality thanks to its transparent Buttermilk finish. The body is joined to a roasted maple neck that is topped with a roasted maple fingerboard that host 22 frets. A handy body end wheel (in true MusicMan style) allows for easy truss adjustment.
Unique to the James Valentine JV60 is the choice of electronics. At first glance you may think it hosts a pair of humbuckers, but what you actually have is a single in the bridge position and humbucker at the neck, giving superb versatility. You are also treated to a stealth 12db Active boost via the push/push volume knob, a handy clean boost that'll take your signal up a notch - great to kick in for solos or push that valve front end a little harder!
Other appointments include the locking tuning machines and included gig bag.
To round up, the Sterling JV60 James Valentine will not only appeal Maroon 5 fans, but also to any guitarist in the market for something a little different, with standout looks, great spec and a versatile range of tones.
