Overview

The awesome 7-string Music Man John Petrucci Signature JPX-7 Electric Guitar commemorates 10 years of collaboration between Music Man and Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci. With a slightly enlarged contoured alder body, ebony fingerboard with custom JP inlays, and 24 jumbo frets, the Petrucci signature guitar also has a select mahogany neck. The updated body shape has a slightly thinner upper horn and a more symmetrical bridge end profile. The guitar's body is chambered for added acoustic resonance.

The Petrucci JPX-7 guitar neck is super secure with a 5-bolt joint and a rounded heel that lets you comfortably access the entire fretboard. Black chrome hardware includes a custom John Petrucci Music Man piezo floating tremolo, and reliable Schaller M6-IND locking tuners.

The John Petrucci Signature JPX-7 is loaded with high-output humbucking pickups and a piezo pickup built into the tremolo bridge for both scorching electric and sweet acoustic guitar sounds. Traditional magnetic pickups include a DiMarzio Liquifire humbucker in the neck position and a DiMarzio Crunch Lab humbucker in the bridge position.

A specially-wired 5-way switch gives you access to the individual pickup coils so that you can combine them in both traditional and unique ways making the Music Man Petrucci guitar a sonic powerhouse. Traditional pickup controls include master volume and tone knobs. The acoustic piezo pickup gets its own separate volume control. A 3-way toggle switches you from the magnetic pickups to the piezo pickup, or combines both.

Dual output jacks give you the option of running either Piezo/Mono (output 1) or Magnetic/Stereo (output 2). Music Man includes a hardshell case with the signature John Petrucci JPX-7 guitar.

Outstanding!

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci Signature JPX-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

This guitar is simply incredible! Usually an Ibanez player, and a keen Petrucci fan, I thought I would take the plunge to the EBMM side! The guitar is so much more alive than my older Ibanez guitars. By alive I don't mean trebly as some people do. There's definitely an increased resonance due to the chambering, which influences the tone in a 100% positive way. Notes and chords have a sense of maturity and air to them. They breathe a lot more. The guitar also responds to what you're playing, so while it's super easy to play, if your playing it sloppy, you'll notice! Tone wise, the pickups are great! The low B really has a nice growl and roar, and just the right amount of top end. The Liquifire in the neck position is smooth and nails that Petrucci flurry of notes sound! Fit and finish are 100% spot on, set up from the factory was perfect for me (although I will probably put a higher gauge B, comes with a 56, which is a little light for me) In other words, if you're thinking of getting this guitar, DO IT, you won't be disappointed!

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci Signature JPX-7 7-String Electric Guitar:

I just received my JPX-7 and what I can say, in one word, is: outstanding! This guitar is everything Music Man claims, and more. It has a very, very low action and comfort neck. The finishing is perfect, principally the fret work (including the fretboard); no buzz at all. Pretty impressive. I have been playing it unplugged to challenge its sustain and intonation, and I am amazed. It worth every cent I spent on.
