Ernie Ball Music Man Announces Kaizen Guitar

Ernie Ball Music Man Announces Kaizen Guitar

The 7-string Kaizen was crafted with design concepts born from Tosin Abasi’s 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, custom offset neck humbucker, and a 3-way switch wired with a custom middle position. Each guitar comes equipped with a MusicMan tremolo, Steinberger gearless tuners, and a G&G hardshell case.


Multi-Scale Neck - 24.75” to 25.7” (E to B or 1st to 7th string) multi-scale design provides affirmative string tension for thick and chunky rhythms on the bass strings, with a traditional feelon the treble strings for smooth bends and solos.

Infinity Radius Fretboard - Conical fretboard radius peaks along the treble-side edge of the fretboard and folds towards the player for an unobstructed view of the entire fretboard in playing position.

Steinberger Gearless Locking Tuners – Contemporary low profile, accurate and lightweight tuning machines feature smooth rotation and allow for a straight string pull.

Multi-Scale Tremolo – Super smooth modern Music Man tremolo with spring dampeners to alleviate unwanted overtones and ringing.

New Music Man Pickups – Music Man designed custom HT (Heat Treated) humbucker in the bridge position features powerful lows with remarkable definition resulting in one of the hottest pickups on the market. A slanted mini-humbucker in the neck position has been specifically designed to compliment the Kaizen bridge humbucker, offering an array of dynamic tones with outstanding sonic clarity.
