Ernie Ball Earthwood Guitar, c.1970s
Ernie Ball Earthwood
This is an Ernie Ball Earthwood acoustic guitar with a maple neck and fretboard. In the 1970s, Ernie Ball set out to create acoustic guitars with the least non-wood parts possible, with wooden pick-gaurds, truss rod covers, and neck plates. Another wild innovation with the Earthwood guitars is the bolt on neck, making the neck feel a lot like an electric, with plenty of clearance at the neck joint. This particular piece has a really great, natural sound with great playability to match. The action is very comfortable with a fabulous response from the maple fretboard. There is quite a bit of wear on the sides, but nothing serious. There is also some lacquer corrosion on the fretboard but nothing that affects playability. All in all this instrument is a great player and a wonderful example of outside-the-box thinking from Ernie Ball. Ships in a hardshell case.
