The Valentine JV60T is a revamped version of the already beautiful Sterling by Music Man James Valentine signature guitar inspired by the Music Man signature model built for and designed by Maroon 5‘s James Valentine. This brand new design has all of the same aesthetic charm and tone as the original Valentine guitar but comes equipped with a Music Man designed fulcrum tremolo system that increases the range of sonic possibilities.
Featuring a highly resonant Swamp Ash body in a sleek double cutaway design that combines the contours of two of James Valentine’s all time favorite guitars (a T-style and a 335 style) with a silky smooth Roasted Maple neck and fretboard for next level comfort and buttery playability.
The key to the JV60T’s versatile tone is its electronics. Featuring a specially designed single coil pickup, housed in a humbucker casing, in the bridge position, and a Music Man spec humbucker pickup in the neck position, the Valentine features a 12dB boost that is activated by a push-push switch on the volume pot. This allows you a new level of tonal versatility as you can switch instantly between lead and rhythm voicings without sacrificing tone or volume.
The most impressive innovation on the JV60T is the addition of a Music Man spec classic fulcrum tremolo system. This fulcrum tremolo is incredibly smooth, allowing you to pull notes sharp or drop them flat with ease, and the addition of Sterling by Music Man locking tuners ensures that you will enjoy tuning stability the entire time you use the tremolo.
The Sterling by Music Man Valentine JV60T delivers incredible tonal versatility with a number of high end appointments that are extremely rare at this price point. The push-push 12dB volume boost allows you to switch between jangly rhythm and searing lead voicings with the simple push of the volume control, making it perfect for live playing. Featuring a Mississippi Swamp Ash body with a sleek roasted maple neck and fretboard, and a Music Man spec fulcrum tremolo system, the new Valentine guitar is delivers everything a guitarist would want at an incredible price point.
