Product description

  • This guitar is a true miracle of design, ergonomic qualities and playability! Created in close co-operation with John Petrucci (Dream Theater). This new model has been released by Music Man to commemorate 10 years of their collaboration with John Petrucci. The new body shape has a slightly thinner upper horn and a more symmetric bridge end profile. The body is also chambered for added acoustic resonance.
  • 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: Black Sugar - a special finish with a very fine grain, subtly shimmering. The pictures just do not do it full justice. The instrument looks simply awesome!With black hardware.
  • Body: Alder, with maple top and a special mahogany tone block.
  • Neck: Birdseye maple, roasted - this new 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. 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 - unavailable on any other Music Man guitars until recently. A fretboard radius of 15" supports fast playing and easy string bending. With JP Shield inlays and the "Ball Family Reserve" inlay at the 12th fret.
  • Frets: 24, wide Jumbo - a perfect fretjob, another famous feature on Music Man USA guitars.
  • Nut: 43 mm - Standard.
  • Headstock: Natural, with the John Petrucci signature.
  • Tuners: Schaller M-6 IND locking tuners - 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, 5-way pickup switch (coils 1+2, 1&4, 1+2 & 3+4, 2&3, 3+4), 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, craftmanship, handling and sound!
  • The guitar comes with a high-quality original Music Man USA formfit hardshell case, Certificate of Authenticity and factory accessoires.
