Ernie Ball Music Man BFR John Petrucci Majesty - Gremlin Sparkle
Limited Run — Hand-signed by John Petrucci!
This Ernie Ball Music Man BFR John Petrucci Majesty serves the master guitarist's need for sonic versatility and eminent playability. A resonant basswood body provides the core of its sound, which pairs seamlessly with its mahogany neck for impressive sustain and attack. Harness an endless array of tones by way of two DiMarzio humbuckers, an active preamp, and an internal piezo system. Hand-signed by John Petrucci himself, this limited-run BFR instrument stands out from all the rest.
Custom JP/MM piezo floating tremolo 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 tremolo 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 trem will return to perfect position every time. And with this guitar's built-in piezo system, you'll have amazing full-bodied acoustic-style tones on demand.
20dB gain boost and a passive coil tap
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 over a passive coil tap 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 output jump! Want that single-coil sound for your clean passages? That one resides in your tone control. With this BFR John Petrucci Majesty, there's nothing to hold you back from all the tones that are in your head.
A collectible Ball Family Reserve instrument
A Ball Family Reserve (BFR) instrument that celebrates Ernie Ball Music Man's heritage in guitar craftsmanship with some of the finest tonewoods and finishes available, the BFR John Petrucci Majesty is a supreme expression of the luthier's art. It's a superbly balanced instrument and, thanks to its sculpted mahogany body, it's supremely comfortable and lightweight — perfect for marathon gigs and sessions. This axe gives you the ultimate in playability. 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.
