This is a stock Ernie Ball Music Man Big Al 5-string strung with the new Ernie Ball Slinky Cobalt Flatwound strings featuring a roasted maple neck and 3 single coil pickups. It is called Monte in honor of my father-in-law who is always so supportive of all my efforts and has contributed to this purchase by hiring me for some studio work on his body of work.

In 2016 I will have been involved with Ernie Ball for 20 years, having been featured on the back page of their 1996 catalog in Germany as one of their endorsers for bass guitars (listed as Robby Billasch in very good company I might add). To this day my collection has several Music Man basses and the Big Al 5 seemed the perfect piece to celebrate our ‘anniversary’. Rumor has it that the Big Al model might get retired soon, which will make this bass even more special.
