Comments about Sterling by Music Man John Petrucci JP157 7-String Electric Guitar:

Great guitar, the roasted maple neck is amazing. The push/push db boost is a nice touch, with high gain it tightens up low end riffing. It needs new pickups though. I have a set of illuminators on the way. The stock ones just aren't very good. That said, I have a JP70 I dropped a Crunch lab/liquifire set in and it sounds incredible-I expect this will be a similar experience. It plays great, feels wonderful, and I am very happy with the purchase. As most Sterling's do, it just needs a pickup swap to become great.
