Ernie Ball Music Man JP7 John Petrucci Signature Electric Guitar - Dragon Blood Flame
Immaculate 7-string Guitar Conjured Up by Petrucci Himself
As Dream Theater’s famed virtuoso guitarist, John Petrucci has been lighting up the stage and the studio for decades with his inimitable brand of axe-slinging pyrotechnics. Anyone familiar Petrucci’s oeuvre knows he is an unabashed tone chaser, crafting some of the tastiest guitar sounds of all time. So, when he partnered with Ernie Ball Music Man to create his signature series of guitars, Petrucci brought along a list of killer specs that would culminate in his (ahem) dream guitar. The Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 7 is an immaculate instrument, with a contoured, maple-topped alder body and an ultrafast slim mahogany knock. Specially selected by Petrucci, two stellar DiMarzio humbucker pickups and a custom piezo vibrato bridge let you conjure up an endless array of brilliant tones.
Astonishing tonal options
The Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 7’s comfortably contoured alder body contains a mahogany tone block and is topped with maple — a unique tone cocktail that gives you wonderful warmth and resonance you wouldn’t expect in a solidbody, along with prodigious sustain. Two DiMarzio humbuckers — a LiquiFire neck pickup and a Crunch Lab bridge pickup — serve up everything from chiming cleans through a wide range of crunch and all the way to liquid gain. There’s very little this exquisite 7-string can’t do for you.
Floating piezo vibrato and Schaller locking tuners for perfect pitch
The custom John Petrucci Ernie Ball Music Man Piezo floating vibrato is constructed of chrome-plated hardened steel with stainless steel saddles. With the flick of a switch, you'll be able to get great-sounding acoustic tones from your John Petrucci 7, making this one of the most versatile guitars around. The headstock is fitted with Schaller M6-IND locking tuners that make string changing a cinch and adorned with pearl buttons that add a classy visual touch.
