Anyone who has caught Jason Richardson live with metalcore heroes All That Remains on their recent tour likely witnessed the 27-year-old wunderkind shredding away on an Ernie Ball Music Man seven-string. Which, in and of itself, is not unusual - Richardson has been a longtime champion of EBMM’s extended-range electric guitars

But upon closer inspection, these fans may have also noticed that this Music Man was unlike any other that Richardson - or any guitarist, for that matter - had ever played before. That’s because this guitar was Richardson’s new Artist Series signature model, which he developed in collaboration with the Ernie Ball Music Man team.
