Excellent Guitar

Comments about Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar:

I just received my Music Man Petrucci JP-6 a few days ago and it plays and sounds amazing. I also have a PRS Custom 24 and this is a perfect companion. The finish (Pear Red Burst) is flawless and the neck feels great. RIght out of the case it was setup perfectly. The guitar is super-light and the contoured body make it really comfortable to play.

I'm also really impressed with how well the trem stays in tune - on par with any Floyd Rose I've ever had. The pickups are not has hot as I expected, which is a good thing. They are very clear & defined and have a warm, distinctive tone and they work great with my Blackstar amp.

I'd highly recommend this guitar!

Comments about Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar:

First thing I have to say is that these pictures do no justice to the actual guitar in person. I have the guitar in pearl red burst and my goodness, does it take my breath away. I never thought I'd be a person to buy a red guitar but the paint is absolutely stunning. It changes colors depending on the angle you look at it. So when your guitar is on a guitar stand the body is red and the edges gradually fade to black. It looks like art, but it plays like a dream. I've played this guitar through a fender frontman and marshall using a boss ME50 fx pedal. Basically, the dual custom dimarzio humbuckers can give you any kind of sound you'd like. I've used the neck pick up (on clean channel) and played melodic arpeggios that sounded so acoustic-like it'd make any listener cry. I've used the bridge pickup (with distortion) to get that growl and oomph that sounds as good as a '61 sg. The thin neck is super fast so you can shred all the way down to the 24th fret without altering your hand position too much. This guitar can do it all. Also the grooved contour slip into my body like a custom made glove. It's as if this guitar was designed specifically for me. Pick it up and you'd never wanna put it down.

Comments about Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar:

This is one of the best guitars on the planet. From the ungodly sensual neck to the direct mounted DiMarzios. The non-locking custom bridge stays in tune better than any Double Locking system I've used and has a much better feel. The controls are out of your way and this guitar WILL make you a better player. I've been playing for 20 years and if there is a better guitar out there, I haven't played it. Buy it, get to know it, and rip!!!
