Sterling Ball has confirmed that former PRS-endorser Johnny Hiland is now endorsing Ernie Ball Music Man guitars:
As of today Johnny Hiland has joined our family as a valued endorsee. Johnny is over the moon with the Silhouette and will be playing them for a long time we both hope.
This was rumored a few weeks ago, but at the time Ball stated that he and Hiland had not spoken about it. However, it appears that shortly after the rumor started, Hiland’s people sought out Ernie Ball Music Man after negotiations fell through with Paul Reed Smith.
