- A classic MusicMan signature guitar model, created in close co-operation with John Petrucci (Dream Theater). Crafted with highest precision and attention to detail, by Ernie Ball MUSICMAN in San Louis Obispo, California.
- Finish: Neptune Blue, with chrome hardware. A special PDN finish, warm and transparent, to highlight the fine wood structure.
- Body: African mahogany.
- Neck: Best birdseye maple, roasted. This special treatment by Music Man allows the performance of the neck to benefit of a thermally modified microstructure: It increases dimensional stability, resistance to temperature and humidity changes and subsequent warping, reduces density while maintaining stiffness for a lighter neck with sufficient strength, yields a microstructure similar to naturally aged woods with lower moisture content, results in more resonance and less damping, eliminates the need for hazardous chemical treatments. Vibrational testing indicates that roasted maple exhibits clearer tone with a stronger fundamental than untreated maple samples.
- Scale: 25.5" (Standard).
- Fretboard: Birdseye maple, roasted. With custom JP Shield inlays and a 'double-shield' inlay at the 12th fret.
- Frets: 24, high profile, wide. Stainless steel.
