Designed in conjunction with the Award Winning Engineering team of Ernie Ball Music Man and Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine, The Sterling by Music Man version of the James Valentine Valentine guitar features a Certified Sustainable Mississippi Swamp Ash slab body.
JV60 features a gorgeous Roasted Maple neck and fretboard, which not only give this guitar a striking appearance, but also an incredibly responsive feel. The Roasted Maple neck undergoes a very specialized kiln drying process which involves heating the wood to a specific temperature, or Roasting it, as the name implies. This removes excess moisture from the wood, which makes it stronger, more stable, lighter in weight, and, less susceptible to humidity changes. It also gives the player one of the most amazing feels in a neck. Topping the Roasted Maple neck is a 12 inch radius, 22 fret Roasted Maple fretboard with black dot style inlays.
At the heart of the electronics layout are two pickups (1-humbucker/1-single coil) wound and voiced to Music Man specifications, and wired to a 3-way pickup selector. Additionally, JV60 features an Active push-push 12dB circuit boost on the Volume control, allowing the player ultimate soloing power at their fingertips. This Active Circuit is powered by a 9V battery that loads into an easily accessed compartment on the rear of the instrument, and requires no tools, making battery changes user friendly and quick.
The no-nonsense Sterling by Music Man design hardtail string through bridge features bent steel saddles, and are loaded ‘string through body’ for fantastic sustain. The locking tuning machines are arranged in a 4+2 manner on the headstock, giving positive, in line string pull over the nut. String changes are easy with a slight turn of the locking wheel mechanism located on the rear of each tuning machine. James’ Valentine signature adorns the headstock.

What started as a simple string and pedal sales catalog has grown exponentially over the past thirty years. The early days were a time where catalogs didn't have much of a presence in the industry, but what began as a college dorm room operation grew rapidly. In 1986 we moved to a full product offering and 64-page catalog, which over the years has grown to 162 pages. Join the AMS family and get your free catalog now!
