Well-balanced and innovative, the Majesty 8 features a neck-through-body design, enhanced upper fret access, ergonomic in-line control knob placement and an advanced pickup switching system that effectively eliminates the delay between pickup selection.

It features John Petrucci Custom Slanted DiMarzio Dreamcatcher and Rainmaker humbuckers, voiced to perfectly amplify the tone woods and deliver Petrucci’s latest tonal range. Additional appointments include Schaller locking tuners, Music Man custom piezo hardtail bridge and matte black hardware. Comes with a custom Mono case.
