If you play guitar no doubt you've used his strings at some point.

Sleep tight Mr. Extra Super Slinky. My guitar gently weeps.

I can't imagine that there's a guitarist in the world that hasn't used his strings at least once.

RIP Buddy.

That's sad. The famous "eagle" logo was designed by Rolly Crump - designer of the Lanai Tiki's from Disney;and's Tiki Room...
He and Ernie Ball were partners at one point...

Oh man, this is sad. I just saw this thread. Somewhere, old Ernie and Mel Bay are sitting around trading riffs with hollow gold D'Angelico's, I'm sure. We'll miss ya Ernie...
