10/10 Would Snap G-String

By Evan Stanley

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Sterling by Music Man JP70 7-String Electric Guitar:

I had ordered this guitar not too long ago, and it just came in yesterday. I must say, this is one of the best feeling guitars that I have taken the pleasure of playing. This guitar features a beautifully done trans-green burst finish, locking tuners, a full floating Sterling By Music Man tremolo (Suuuuper stable, stays in tune just fine), and 2 Sterling humbucking pickups which are articulate, and bright (I might eventually swap pickups, but that's because I'm picky, but in all reality, these are just fine). The guitar arrived perfectly set up. The action was at the perfect height, and the tremolo was very level to the body. I can't judge the reliability, since I have only had it for a day, but I have heard so many great things regarding reliability for all Sterling guitars. Tl;dr: Spectacular feel, sound, appearance. Versatile with tones. Can handle crushing distortion, to bluesy lead tones, to big, beautiful, clean chords. Well done to these guys. They know how to craft a guitar that feels like it should be worth $1500 for less than half the price. Highly recommended.

Comments about Sterling by Music Man JP70 7-String Electric Guitar:

Picked up this guitar in Transparent Green as I was looking for my first 7-string guitar. At this price point, it probably has the best features, but isn't perfect.

Pros: I was surprised at how thin and fast the neck feels. The neck is unfinished (which I prefer) and my hand glides up and down the neck, no problem. The action was surprisingly low which was a huge plus. The finish on the body and headstock is really nice, again, better than I expected. The trem feels real solid and the locking tuners are nice.

Cons: Like others have mentioned there can be tuning issues after bending a string. This is due to the lack locking nut. I've heard putting graphic in the nut helps this but I haven't tried. Honestly, the tuning issue isn't that bad, but I minor annoyance.

The pickups are okay. I didn't expect to like them. I'd pretty much expect to replace pickups on any guitar in this price range. However, they aren't atrocious. So the P/U's aren't really a pro or con.

For a full review of the JP70, look for "Sterling by Music Man JP70 - A Pretentious Review " in the Man Bun Metal Head channel on YouTube.
