collapse expand iconDescription

The John Petrucci Majesty Figured Maple Top Electric Guitar from Ernie Ball Music Man offers progressive guitarists an instrument tailored to their demanding needs. Featuring a neck-through-body design and enhanced upper fret access, the Majesty allows for intricate soloing and chording across the fretboard. Its advanced pickup switching system provides an abundance of tonal choices, including magnetic and piezo pickups, coil tapping and up to 20dB of gain boost when needed. The Majesty delivers the high performance and playability that Petrucci demands.

Flawless Playability for Progressing Players

With a neck-through-body construction and sculpted heel, the Majesty offers unencumbered access to higher frets for complex chording and soloing. Its thin, fast-playing neck and medium-jumbo stainless steel frets allow for a smooth playing experience whether performing rapid-fire runs or wide interval leaps. The Majesty's ergonomic in-line control knob placement also provides intuitive access to its array of tonal options.

Signature Tone Woods and Pickups

The Majesty features an alder body with a figured maple top, paired with a mahogany and flamed maple neck for a resonant, balanced tone with clear, singing highs and tight lows. It is equipped with John Petrucci DiMarzio Dreamcatcher and Rainmaker humbuckers, voiced to perfectly amplify the guitar's tonewoods and deliver Petrucci's signature tone—from searing leads to chunky rhythms.

Advanced Pickup Switching for Endless Tonal Possibilities

The Majesty's pickup switching system provides an abundance of tonal choices to suit any musical situation. Choose from magnetic pickups, piezo pickups or a blend of both for a wide range of tones from crisp acoustic-like sounds to high-output rock. Independent volume controls allow for custom blending of the magnetic and piezo pickups, which can also be used in mono or stereo applications. A 20dB boost switch provides extra gain when needed for searing lead tones.

Premium Components for Rock-Solid Performance

Premium components on the Majesty include a super-smooth John Petrucci Music Man tremolo system, Schaller locking tuners and matte black or black gold hardware. A custom hardshell case is also included to provide the utmost protection for this high-performance instrument.
