Ernie Ball Earthwood



Handmade by Ernie Ball in Costa Mesa, California alongside the Legendary Earthwood Acoustic Bass. Designed in part by George Fullerton, known for his long association with Leo Fender and credited as the co-inventor of the Fender Stratocaster. This model features a Spruce Top, Walnut Back and Sides and an All-Maple Neck.

These were made in extremely limited numbers, and sport some very unique characteristics. The back and sides are made of solid walnut, which provide a nice mid-range tone in conjunction with the projection of the solid spruce top. Deep body, with loud volume. Priced to sell quick for $2,650.

Body: Solid walnut back and sides with solid spruce top in natural finish. Rosewood bridge with ivoroid bridge pins and original wooden pickguard. Lower bout measures 16 1/2″ across with 4 5/8” depth. Upper bout measures 12 1/2″ across with 4 5/8” depth.

Weight: 5 lb, 3.3 oz

Neck: Rounded bolt-on maple neck with black side dots and black dot inlays. Most of the finish on the back of the neck has worn away with time, allowing for quick and comfortable maneuvering. Maple fingerboard shows ample sweatstains and wear, but nothing that hinders playability. Headstock sports a wooden truss rod cover, and brown oval logo which housed an “E” logo at some point that has long since been removed (not included). Grover tuners function perfectly. 1 11/16” nut width, 25 1/2″ scale length. Neck is straight and plays nicely up and down the length of the fingerboard.
