Ernie Ball Music Man proudly presents the Kaizen, an all-new visionary collaboration between the Ernie Ball Music Man design team and the world-renowned guitarist, innovator, and designer Tosin Abasi. Built for the modern player, the Kaizen is available in 6 and 7-string versions crafted with forward-thinking design concepts guided by Tosin Abasi’s unique playing style and vision. Offered with a decidedly contoured alder body, roasted figured maple neck, and ebony fretboard, the multi-scale length fretboard also features an “infinity radius” that provides improved visibility of the fretboard in any playing position. The electronics include a new Music Man HT bridge humbucker, a custom offset neck humbucker, and a 3-way switch wired with a custom middle position. Each guitar comes equipped with a Music Man tremolo, Steinberger gearless tuners, and a G&G hardshell case.
