I bought my Petrucci at the Guitar Center in Raliegh, NC. I have to say, this is by far the finest guitar I've ever played! The piezo bridge gives an amazing acoustic sound, and the capability to mix both the magnetic and piezo is wonderful! The neck is very thin, and extremely fast and comfortable to play. The action is perfect... very easy to adjust. The locking tuners are a godsend, and the pickups are very responsive, with no muddiness even if your stings' tone has degraded. The finish is extremely durable, too. I'm a huge Dream Theater fan, and this guitar is a must have for anyone who's into them as well.

The first jp6 with piezo that I received had some noise issues when switched to piezo pickups. I called ernie ball, did my research and turns out the piezos were not good. After a point I could no longer hear anything when switched to piezos. Sent my guitar back and received a new jp6 with piezo. Turned out its piezos also had problems, not all of them but the one on the A string. Plus its G string was going out of tune all the time. I called ernie ball to ask about their piezo pickups on jp6 and I was told that the whole piezo system was revised and the jp6 models that are manufactured after november 2013 have the new system. The ones that I received I think was before that date. So be careful if you're buying with piezo because apparently they have serious issues and you got to see if the guitar you're ordering is an old version. You can give the serial number to ernieball and they'll tell you when it was manufactured. At the end I received a full refund and bought jp6 without piezo and I'm very happy now. I wish it could have piezos but I no longer trust music man's piezo pickups, esp for old guitars. However, this is still a great company and I love my current jp6 without the piezos. And of course I'm very happy and thank to musician friend for helping me in this process. It was really easy to exchange the guitar for a new one and get the refund after etc. The guys that I talked to were really nice and tried to help. Thank you musicians friends

      This guitar is almost perfect. I dislike Stainless steel frets. They have too bright a sound. Once I put nickel frets in this guitar it will be perfect.

      I actually tried this guitar out and hands down THE very best guitar I've ever played. The feel of the neck and the different tone-woods incorporated within this is incredible. the thick tone and high end output from this beast of a guitar by far exceeds any other guitar I've played. JP is king!

        This guitar is great! I have many different guitars, Gibson SG's, Fernandes, Fender, Ibanez, and this thing I think has topped them all, it even plays better than my Ibanez RG-450, which is very hard to beat believe it or not.

        Phenomenal!

        By STEVE CRAVEN

        from St. Charles, MO

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

        I've owned many guitars. Of any guitar I've ever played in my life, this one certainly takes the cake on being my favorite guitar to play. The pickups are certainly the highest of quality. Some of my guitars can come close to this tone, but this guitar just has that certain indescribable edge that makes it what it is. The piezo bridge is also amazing. It makes the clean tones just sparkle. Put some chorus on them and they'll blow you away. The custom JP bridge is also great. So easy to change strings on this guitar. I'm a huge fan of locking bridges and locking nuts, but the whole idea of the locking tuners is changing my mind about that. Simply, the guitar just plays so well. It's comfortable to play and the fretboard is super fast. The pickup selector is in a great spot too (seems like such a non-issue but I really like the way it works out). Finally, just open the case and look at the guitar. The looks alone can almost justify the price. I have the "mystic dream" color, and its really cool. Depending on the angle the light hits it, it could be green, blue, purple, orange, or yellow. Those are the colors ive seen so far. If you can afford it, buy it. You will not regret it. Also, another upside, no teflon torque bushings on the trem bar to get all worn out.

        Awsome guitar

        By JULIAN ARIAS

        from miami

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

        amazing!
        I been playing guitar for 10 years now. I have a fender strat american, les paul traditional plus, ibanez rg and a taylor. And now this guitar. I was looking for a different guitar with a different but nice sound and this one is it. By far it kills any other guitar i have in construction. Th e guita is very well though, and everything has a reason, i love the body shape, amazing feeling neck, the switches adn the bridge is just plain amazing, always in tune and the guitar itself is a beaty. It feels and looks like such a custoem guitar, and it is. A lot of people say this is only a metal guitar, not true. Ofcourse i love proggresive rock and its amazing at it, but i play at a church and we play very U2 style kind of music, hillsong, delirious, switchfoot kind of thing and the guitar can do them all and sounds amazing at it. with the right gear ofcourse, dont try to do U2 with a dual rectifier or mark V, it wont work, but put this baby trough an ac30...tone heaven. Also the pick ups are all very different but nice sounding. Neck its fat and nice humbucker sound, middle sounds like a fat warm strat, love it and the bridge is killer. Dont be scared to buy this guitar thinking all it does is metal becasue it can do it all and very well....Love this guitar!!!!! get it! oH and the piezo is amazing amazing even trhough an electric guitar amp and trhough an acoustic its very nice....get it!!!!

        Perfect out of the box

        By Ricardo

        from San diego, CA

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

        Very well built, details and over all finest instrument I ever see. First the mystic dream paint is superb, very very beautiful will worth the extra money. The floating bridge is awesome,is a low profile and no fine tuners(more hand movement at the bridge), and it will stay in tune perfectly. The pickups, bridge pickup is awesome very high gain output, and nice for clean too. Neck pickup sound is amazing when soloing and the chords on this guitar sounds very defined. And the piezo is out of this world, when you compare magnetic clean with piezo output you hear big difference, piezo is like adding sparkles to the mix. No way you have this guitar without piezo, it is a big add on. Neck, very slim and the scale of fretboard is incredible, the frets are wide and the over all length of neck is kind of short, comfortable with easy access to all frets. I wasn't sure about the 3-way selectors, but once i try it are very smooth and fast. I love it. The setup of the complete guitar is perfect out of the box, is equipped with set of 10's strings, action, bridge, truss rod and tremolo were perfect.

        Not without faults but an exceptional instrument

        By Eddie

        from San Jose, CA

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

        I purchased "Victoria" from the Santa Clara, CA store in August 2009. I sampled dozens of instruments before choosing the Petrucci reserve model. After 1.5 years of daily play, I am as confident as ever that this is the perfect instrument for me. The neck is the smoothest I have ever played. The natural finish and thin neck allow for effortless shredding. You can bend and whammy the bejeezus out of the strings without it going out of tune. The guitar itself is lightweight but sturdy. The bridge pickup has an incredibly sharp sound without being noisy. The neck provides a nice warm lead tone. The middle provides a nice clean tone for funky and 80s clean tones but comes across a little muddy when distorted. This guitar does have a few minor issues. First, the floating bridge makes it difficult to do significant tuning changes and maintain intonation, so I need to keep my Ibanez RG-470 around for drop-D tunings. Second, the piezo switch is inconveniently located. When I start getting into the music, I have a tendency to hit it with my right hand, and the sound is rarely pleasant when distorted. Third, the piezo tone needed to be tuned a little bit because it clipped at full volume when new. Finally, it doesn't have that insane crunch you need to do detuned metal, but I guess that's why they make the baritone version. Overall, this guitar covers all musical styles: Van Halen, Rush, James Brown, Willie Nelson, Chuck Berry, you name it. It also sounds pretty enough to play for choir at church. It's expensive, but the Petrucci reserve is worth every penny.

        By Roger Mendez

        from Texas

        Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

        First off let me begin with this. Buy this guitar. It is the best guitar I have ever owned in my 30+ years as a guitar player. My dream guitar has always been a cross between a Gibson Les Paul, PRS, a Parker Fly, A Charvel, and a Fender Strat. This guitar is that, Pure and Definitive Tone. If your the kind of guitar player that plugs in and just solos and tone isn't that much of an issue, this will be way too much guitar for you. This guitar sounds great clean or dirty and really completes my sound. Thank God someone got the tremolo system right! It does what every you want when you want and how you want it without a hitch. If your the Metallica type player, there are other options for that kind of sound. But if you want great harmonics and fantastic tone and think your ready to handle a guitar of this caliber, then this is a must buy. Bottomline is this, I have owned many guitars over my life that really cant offer me the tone and sound I hear in my head, but I think this guitar with a bit more time adjusting will be the perfect guitar for soul shredders and heavy thrashers. Period.
