A Quality Blend of Old and New Features

As lead guitarist for the band Maroon 5, James Valentine has to cover a lot of tonal ground. His Music Man James Valentine signature model is constructed from an ash and roasted maple combination to get plenty of attack and snap for the band's brand of funky pop. The custom-wound humbucker and single-coil pickups give the Valentine an impressively wide tonal range, and hidden features like an active gain boost, coil splitting, and the neck-heel-located truss rod adjustment make the Music Man Valentine a powerful instrument with plenty of vintage appeal.

Vintage tonewoods with a twist

The ash body of the Music Man Valentine solidbody electric guitar offers a clear attack, strong note definition, and a warm low end. This is a wonderful wood for funky chord stabs and rhythms. Matched with the roasted maple neck and fretboard, it exudes plenty of sustain. And they can really make the bridge pickup growl for modern country or even hard rock tones. The neck's roasting process also makes it very stable in a variety of climate situations.

Custom-wound humbucker and single-coil

The pickups in the Valentine were designed in collaboration between James and Music Man. The bridge pickup is a vintage-sounding single-coil, though it's housed in a humbucker-type cover. And the neck humbucker is voiced very clearly to handle everything from jazz to hard rock tones. When you switch to the middle pickup selector position, you'll enjoy a cutting and still full-sounding tone that excels at sparkling arpeggios and tight picking-hand rhythm work. Hiendguitar players agree that this is a deceptively versatile electric guitar.

Coil splitting, boost, and more

The power of the Music Man Valentine solidbody electric guitar is much more than meets the eye. Giving one of the pots a push engages an active boost, which is great when you need to get above a band for a solo, or when you need a little extra grit and sustain from your dirty tone. Pushing the other pot splits the neck humbucker, making the Valentine sound very similar to a classic guitar with two single-coils. And the body's revolutionary wedge shape causes the instrument to be very comfortable while helping to reduce weight.
