Ball Family Reserve (BFR) style, class, and quality
When Ernie Ball Music Man designates one of their instruments as Ball Family Reserve, you better believe it means top-quality craftsmanship and materials. The BFR Silhouette HSH Trem is a perfect example of this. You’ll notice the BFR Silhouette HSH Trem plays like a dream, because the figured roasted maple neck is finished with gunstock oil and a hand-rubbed wax blend. The special roasting process removes moisture from the wood, strengthening it while reducing weight and making the neck more impervious to changes in temperature and humidity. You’ll appreciate this as the seasons roll around or if you gig far and wide! And gig after gig you’ll have reliable, top-notch performance thanks to premium components and construction.
Silent Circuit electronics deliver world-class tone
Grab the Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Silhouette HSH Trem, and you’ll never have to go digging for amazing tone again. From high-flying solos to chunky rhythms, a set of custom DiMarzio pickups lets you quickly dial in the perfect tone every time. The HSH pickup configuration delivers amazing series, parallel, and single-coil tones. we really like about this BFR limited edition is its H/S/H set of custom DiMarzio pickups, which not only sound great, but they play extremely well with one another. Using the 5-way blade selector, you’ll get parallel and series humbucking tones plus a pure single-coil middle pickup setting. You’ll never have hum, though, because, upon closer inspection, you’ll find that that “single-coil” pickup in the middle position is actually a single-coil-sized dual-blade humbucker. So, no matter what texture you’re going for, this Ernie Ball Music Man BFR Silhouette HSH Trem delivers — hum free.
