Ernie Ball has announced Rabea Massaad will join its growing family of Ernie Ball and Ernie Ball Music Man artists, with the producer, guitarist and YouTube gear guru set to help the brand develop electric guitar models in the future.

Specifically, Massaad is currently at work with Ernie Ball Music Man to craft an all-new guitar template that is said to be based on the brand’s existing Sabre model. According to the company, the as-yet-unnamed guitar will “incorporate unique designs that are specifically engineered for Rabea’s playing style”.
