Ernie Ball Music Man JP7 20th Anniversary Electric Guitar - Honey Butter Burst with Ebony Fingerboard
Celebrate 20 Years of John Petrucci and EBMM!
Progressive metal icon John Petrucci joined the ranks of Ernie Ball Music Man at the turn of the millennium and he hasn't looked back since. The Ernie Ball Music Man JP6 20th Anniversary Electric Guitar celebrates John's formidable legacy and contributions to music with EBMM's most decorated and divine JP6 to date. Its incredible construction starts with a trio of three sonically superior tonewoods: Honduran mahogany for the body and neck, ebony for the fingerboard, and gorgeous flame maple for the top. This combination offers an incredibly ear-pleasing sound that is made all the better by a pair of full-spectrum DiMarzio active Crunch Lab and LiquiFire humbuckers. The JP6 20th Anniversary's floating tremolo not only handles the demands of today's most expressive players, but its Fishman Powerbridge piezo saddles conjure shockingly realistic acoustic guitar tones with incredible results. Round it out with custom switching and rock-solid Schaller locking tuners, and the JP6 20th Anniversary represents a new benchmark in a long line of superior shred machines from the prolific artist and manufacturer.
Elegant tonewoods of the highest quality
John Petrucci's Ernie Ball Music Man artist model instruments have always employed the absolute finest exotic tonewoods available to the manufacturer, and the JP6 20th Anniversary is no different. It all starts with a grain-filled Honduran mahogany body capped with a jaw-droppingly gorgeous flame maple shield, offering incredible warmth and long-lasting resonance with striking good looks guaranteed to garner more than a few second glances. The JP6 20th Anniversary's grain-filled Honduran mahogany neck sports John's signature JP neck profile for supreme comfort and a significant speed boost, with a silky-smooth ebony fingerboard to send your fretting hand from head to heel at warp speed. These exceptional tonewoods are an incredible marker of the Dream Theater founding axeman's two decades of collaboration with Ernie Ball Music Man.
High-octane humbuckers equipped for any style
Two handpicked DiMarzio humbuckers — a Crunch Lab bridge and a LiquiFire neck — take the JP6 20th Anniversary from chimey cleans to fearsome, face-melting distortion with ease. But there's more: a custom piezo floating tremolo lets you engage in vigorous whammy action with absolute tuning integrity while affording access to a range of gorgeous, nuanced acoustic sounds. Tonally speaking, there's little this exquisite instrument can't do for you. if you're seeking versatility, the JP6 20th Anniversary is sure to please.
Schaller locking tuners deliver perfect pitch
The JP6 20th Anniversary's headstock is adorned with Schaller M6-IND locking tuners to make string changes a cinch. Just insert the string, tighten the clamp screw, and tune it up to pitch. Strings won't be wound around the shaft, so your tuning will be reliable no matter how hard you play.
