- This guitar is a true miracle of design, ergonomic qualities and playability! Created in close co-operation with John Petrucci (Dream Theater).
- Meticulously handcrafted with highest precision and attention to detail, by Ernie Ball MUSICMAN in San Louis Obispo, California.
- Ball Family Reserve - a run of instruments built using carefully selected finest tone woods and previously reserved for the Ball Family and friends only!
- Finish: Cherry Sugar - a brand new finish with a very fine grain, subtly shimmering. The pictures just do not do it full justice. The instrument looks simply awesome!With chrome hardware.
- Body: Basswood, with maple top and a special mahogany tone block.
- Neck: Select mahogany - back of the neck matching the body finish. Music Man guitars are particularly so famous among musicians, because of the outstanding quality of their necks. The neck is a pleasure to grab, feels perfect to your hand and plays just fantastic! Bolt-on neck construction (5 bolts) - this enables a fast, precise attack response, while retaining a full, "fat" tone.
- Scale: 25.5" - Standard.
- Fretboard: Ebony. An ultra flat fretboard radius of 20" supports fast playing and easy string bending.
- Frets: 24, medium jumbo, stainless steel - a perfect fretjob, another famous feature on Music Man USA guitars.
- Nut: 43 mm - Standard.
- Headstock: Matching the body finish, with the John Petrucci signature.
- Tuners: Schaller M-6 IND locking tuners with pearloid buttons - placed in the compact 4+2 design typical for Music Man guitars. Often requested by professional artists, these tuners are a must-have for the demanding musician. The key to their design is eliminating wraps around the string post, which can cause string slippage and tuning problems. Simply loosen the thumbwheel located on the back, feed the string through the post, lock the thumbwheel tight, cut off the remaining string, tune up and you’re finished – better tuning stability and no more restringing nightmares.
- Bridge: Custom John Petrucci Music Man Piezo tremolo, free-floating (combines the advantages of a Floyd Rose with those of a vintage tremolo).
- Pickups: 1x DiMarzio Crunch Lab humbucker (bridge), 1x DiMarzio Liquifire humbucker (neck), piezo pickup in the bridge. Both humbuckers are splittable for ultra-clean single coil sounds. This pickup combination is very versatile, dynamic, easy to control and absolutely quiet.
- Alternatively, upon request of the purchaser, we can also perform a professional installation of a different pickup combination, e.g. any DiMarzio, EMG or Seymour Duncan etc. (Very fair prices per pickup swap). Furthermore, we offer installation of active boost and EQ circuits like EMG Afterburner, PA-2, SPC, RPC, VMC, EXG etc. Please ask for details if interested.
- Special feature: This instrument comes with the factory-installed (expensive) piezo bridge - with a built-in piezo preamp and a dedicated 2 band EQ plus a separate balance control knob!
- Electronics: 1x Magnetic Volume, 1x Magnetic Tone, 1x Piezo Volume, 3-way magnetic/both/piezo-switch, 3-way pickup switch (with custom center position configuration), separate and combined outputs for Magnetic and Piezo! Therefore, can be used with mono or stereo cords, in a total of 4 different connection modes.
- Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftsmanship, handling and sound!
- The guitar comes with a high-quality original Music Man USA BFR Deluxe hardcase, Certificate of Authenticity and factory accessories.
