Overview

The JP16 is a combination of the original Music Man John Petrucci signature model and later Ball Family Reserve models. Highlights include a lightweight basswood body with high gloss Black Lava finish and a new Floyd Rose 1000 Pro Floating Tremolo system.

The JP16 also features the return of the original scooped forearm contour which will provide many hours of playing comfort. First fret JP16 logo, stainless steel frets and a smokey ebony fretboard are standard options on the ultra thin and fast figured/roasted maple neck.

A pair of DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers and 20+ dB gain boost push/push volume pot provide the JP16 with plenty of sizzling tone. Includes hardshell case.

    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci JP16 7-String Ebony Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    Sweet EBMM 7-string. I bought because my 7-string Majesty just would NOT hold the strings in tune with tremolo bar use despite the Majesty locking tuners. The Floyd Rose Pro bridge and locking nut on the JP16 7-string does the trick, and this guitar also just seems to be just at tad bit easier to play. Perhaps it is a minor reduction in the size of the neck or its contour in my hand, but the neck is silky smooth and fast. The Majesty 7 has the piezo bridge pick-ups, whereas this guitar does not. If one is just doing high gain jamming, the piezo is not missed, and THIS is the 7-string to play (in my opinion).
