Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man JP15 Roasted Quilt Maple Top Seven-String Electric Guitar:
I play guitar in a hobby cover band that occasionally gigs. In my 20 years of guitar playing, I have never played a guitar that sounds as amazing and feels as nice as the JP15, even those disgustingly expensive PRSs and custom shop Gibsons. The neck is silky smooth. All the hardware has a solid feel: knobs, switches, tremolo, tuning packs, and so forth.
I love how the guitar can provide a full range of sounds. The neck pickup is well rounded. The dual setting sounds just as snappy as a Strat with the single coil switch engaged. The bridge pickup has a sharp (but not harsh) attack and cuts through the mix. I didn't think I would use the boost switch as much as I do. It gives you just a bit more bite or feedback, if you want to add that sort of thing to your solos. Overall, the JP15 produces a beautiful crisp tone.
The guitar is visually stunning.The color is a bit darker than it appears online (see picture), but that's a good thing because it contrasts well with the chrome hardware.
The only complaint I have about the guitar is the case. It's a soft leather, and it's hard to load into my trunk with all my gear without wearing the leather corners off on the rough carpet. Plus, the latches are just a little misaligned so you have to work at it to close the case. These are minor in the grand scheme of things, but they should be noted on a $3000+ guitar.
