The JP16 is a combination of the original MusicMan John Petrucci signature model and later BFR (Ball Family Reserve) models. Features include a lightweight basswood body in the high gloss Black Lava finish and a new Floyd Rose 1000 Pro Floating Tremolo bridge. A highlight is the return of the original scooped forearm contour on the JP 16 body which will provide increased playing comfort. The custom JP16 logo at the first fret, stainless steel frets and a smokey ebony fretboard are standard options on the ultra thin and fast figured/roasted maple neck. Two hot Illuminator humbuckers by DiMarzio and 20+ dB gain boost push/push volume pot provide the JP16 with loads of sizzling tone.
