A New Take on a Modern Classic Delivers High End Appointments With Ultra Smooth Playability
The Sterling by Music Man JP60 in a gorgeous Mystic Dream finish follows the first Music Man JP6 which was the original Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci signature model and has become a modern classic design among shredders and metal players for its tremendous tone and silky playability.
Featuring a lightweight double cutaway basswood body with deep cutaways designed to offer unprecedented access to the highest register of the 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, the Sterling by Music Man JP60 sports an ultra thin, satin finish hard Maple neck with a Rosewood fretboard with medium jumbo frets and custom JP inlays, giving the JP60 custom appointments with incredibly smooth playability.
Electronically, the JP60 features two scorching Music Man spec Humbucker Pickups voiced for high gain lead playing and a wide range of rhythm voicings. Delivering searing leads tones and thunderous rhythm tones at high gain settings, these Music Man spec humbuckers clean up nicely at low volume and have a warm and rich tone in clean settings. The hardware includes a Music Man designed floating modern tremolo bridge with locking tuners to ensure tuning stability. The Music Man spec modern tremolo bridge is silky smooth and stays in tune no matter how aggressively you play.

* Very difficult to do this finish justice in a photo since it changes colors at every angle and it very reflective. Looks amazing from any angle. Includes the tremolo arm and a sterling padded gig bag.
