Yes. Your instrument purchase is covered by a Limited One-Year Warranty. For full terms and conditions, please visit our Warranty page.

Our instruments are designed by Ernie Ball Music Man’s world class team of engineers. The instruments are built in Indonesia with the highest quality standards in place, and then they ship to our Los Angeles warehouse for inspection.


We offer the Ray4 and Ray5 as left-handed models.

All of our battery-equipped instruments feature active electronics. 

For our battery-equipped guitars, the battery compartment is used for a 12dB push-push active volume pot. The following guitars have a battery: Majesty models, JP150, JP157, Luke, and Valentine models.

For our battery-equipped bases, the battery compartment is used for an active eQ (Preamp / On board electronics). All basses have a battery except for our StingRay Short Scale. 


It will take about 3 to 7 business days for you to receive your order. Since we operate out of Los Angeles, California, you may receive your instrument sooner if you live on the West Coast.

We’ll update you on the delivery details every step of the way. Once we process your order, we'll email you the tracking number with order details.
