Overview

The Music Man John Petrucci JPX 6 electric guitar has a thermally-treated roasted neck that not only looks great but adds dimensional stability and resistance to temperature, humidity changes and warping. It has reduced density while maintaining stiffness for a lighter neck with sufficient strength. The roasted neck offers increased resonance, less damping, and clearer tone. The heating process also gives a microstructure similar to naturally aged woods with lower moisture content and eliminates the need for hazardous chemical treatments.

The Music Man John Petrucci 6-String Electric Guitar has the roasted maple neck featuring an adjustable truss rod and 5-bolt mounting to the basswood body for perfect alignment and no slipping. A sculpted neck joint allows free access to upper frets. The Petrucci 6 guitar's ebony fretboard has 24 wide, high-profile frets. Schaller locking tuners and custom John Petrucci tremolo complete the hardware. Its 2 Custom DiMarzio humbucking pickups were specially designed for Petrucci.

JPX with roasted neck

By 

from Mount Olive, New Jersey

Comments about Music Man John Petrucci JPX 6 with Roasted Neck Electric Guitar:

I tried several Petrucci's out at a Guitar Center and thought they were really good. However, I wanted the roasted maple neck and ebony fingerboard, so I had them order this model for me. I wasn't sure if I would like Black Sugar paint, but it is beautiful once you see it in person. All the pictures I have seen online do not do it justice. The neck is unbelievable. I have owned Les Pauls, Fender Strats, G&Ls, Brian Moores, and Ibanez..This neck is the most playable and I am extremely impressed. The action is great across the entire fingerboard. The pickups sound great. I have played them through my DT 25 and a POD so far. I have yet to play them through my Boogie. The piezo sounds great too. The guitar is a little expensive, but it is fine American made guitar. You get what you pay for..

Just like any jp model, but with a more glossy feeling neck

By 

from rochester ny

Comments about Music Man John Petrucci JPX 6 with Roasted Neck Electric Guitar:

Yes i said it. it is basically a jp model with a glossy neck. if i am correct this the cyan jp (sorry if i am wrong). If you like glossy necks check it out by all means. Luckily, if you play jp 7 strings, it is wayyy lighter than a jp7. I honestly want this guitar a lot because of the sound and the cool color. plus it is a guitar center exclusive so the so what i got to play yesterday was a extremely amazing privlige. Anywho, the guitar was cool. i play a range of music but it is mosly Opeth and Dream Theater influenced progressive metal or an acdc style song for my fallen friend, Ryan Strong (R.I.P.). Unfortunately I didn't get to use a whammy bar, but who cares. I care for low profle bridges, soooo... both jpx's and jp7's are awesome.(but i am into 7 strings right now so I like the used jp7 at rochester guitar center a tad more than this). But anywho, check it out. PS: sorry for wasting with wasting your time with this incase you dont understand what i'm saying... Bah, just check this dang thing out instead of listening to me go on. Reading this will give this guitar anough justice... Just check it out already and stop reading this already
