Ernie Ball Music Man proudly presents the Kaizen guitar, a visionary collaboration between the Ernie Ball Music Man design team and the world-renowned guitarist, innovator, and designer Tosin Abasi. The Kaizen is a cutting-edge design concept that was inspired by Tosin's distinct playing style and vision. Featuring Music Man’s proprietary "Infinity Radius Fretboard" and uniquely positioned fret markers, the feel and playability of the Kaizen is enhanced with improved visibility of the fretboard in any position. The instrument is light and undemanding, with a distinctly shaped alder body, a slim profile roasted maple neck, and a multi-scale length fretboard. 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 multi-scale tremolo, Steinberger gearless tuners, and a Mono soft or G&G hardshell case.

Thoughtfully designed radius that enhances the visibility of the fretboard and uniquely positioned fret markers from any playing position

24.75” to 25.5” (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 feel on the treble strings for smooth bends and solos

Contemporary low profile and accurate, lightweight tuning machines feature smooth rotation and allow for a straight string pull.

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. Overall, the Kaizen pickups give ultra-high-output, powerful low-end response while retaining a distinctively clean, clear tone and definition at lower volume levels.

Super smooth modern Music Man tremolo with spring dampeners to alleviate unwanted overtones and ringing.

This creates better visibility of the fretboard for the player. While the roasted maple aspect of the neck is symmetric, the assymetric fretboard does create an asymmetric feel to the neck.
