god's guitar

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Ball Family Reserve John Petrucci 6 Signature Electric Guitar:

This guitar has the greatest pickups I have ever seen and played. The tremolo is the best since the floyd rose but even better. The piezo effect adds all the spice an acoustic guitar might have. John Petrucci you have created one of the greatest guitars of all time. The feel the playability is tremendous.

Phenomenal Instrument

By Scott Lamb

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Ball Family Reserve John Petrucci 6 Signature Electric Guitar:

I have studied everything (manufacturer's literature, web reviews, forum information, etc.) about this guitar before purchasing. I did not want to invest a significant amount of money in a "typical" guitar. I must say that my expectations were very high for this guitar. I am not going to re-state the spec's on this guitar, only give my opinion. After purchasing and playing for some time now, I am convinced this is the most well-rounded, best sounding and playing guitar available in this price range. You can achieve so many different types of quality sounds/tones (acoustic, metal, rock, jazz-type, even somewhat of hybrid single-coil sound from position 2 on the magnetic pickup 3-way). The flexibility of the magnetic and peizo systems are phenomenal. The bridge system is wonderful - no tuning issues at all. The body and neck are smaller/thinner than I was used to, but they are both very comfortable. The workmanship on these guitars is wonderful. I own the mystic dream finish, but played three other guitars with other finishes and I would be pleased with them all. I am rather picky, especially when spending this amount of money, and could pick apart things about the other guitar I own, but not with the JP6. At this point, I can't find anything negative about this guitar. Wonderful and versatile playability and tremendous craftmanship. If I could only purchase one guitar in my life time, this would be it. Good luck!
