Custom JP/MM piezo floating vibrato bridge
John Petrucci can do it all and needs a guitar that can too. Designed in conjunction with JP and Ernie Ball Music Man, this guitar’s proprietary piezo floating vibrato system gives you amazing freedom of expression. You can rest easy knowing your tuning will remain stable thanks to Schaller locking tuners, and know that your bridge will always return to perfect pitch, even under heavy whammy attack. And with this guitar’s built-in piezo system, you’ll have amazing full-bodied acoustic-style tones on demand.
20dB gain boost and passive coil split
One of the defining features of all John Petrucci signature guitars is the forward-thinking and immaculate-sounding electronics. Petrucci has gone to an active preamp system in his guitars, offering you push-push control over a 20dB gain boost and a passive coil split when in the dual pickup position. Need to push your amp over the edge for a screaming solo? Just tap the volume control for a huge jump in output. Want that single-coil sound for your clean passages? Tap your tone control. With this BFR John Petrucci Majesty, there’s nothing to hold you back from realizing any tone you can imagine.
Designed by and for a guitar legend
John Petrucci is a guitar legend, famous for his astonishing technical prowess and systematic demolition of musical boundaries. This man knows exactly what he needs in an instrument. Since his first Ernie Ball Music Man signature model, he has been working with the company to refine the concept. John thinks of his hands as being average-sized, and this is reflected in the slim neck taper — a profile also favored by a broad swath of guitarists. Add to that a premium ebony fingerboard and 24 medium jumbo stainless steel frets, and you’ve got a high-speed, low-drag shredding machine.
