Sterling by Music Man

The 7-String Majesty is the Result of an Unwavering Commitment to Performance, Playability, and Value

The Sterling by Music Man John Petrucci Majesty JP MAJ170 7-string in a beautiful Arctic Dream finish brings Sterling by Music Man’s commitment to creating high quality yet reasonably priced guitars to new heights! Based on the iconic Ernie Ball BFR Majesty models, the Sterling by Music Man John Petrucci Majesty 170X  combines Music Man spec components with great attention to detail to bring you a high quality precision built instrument at an incredible price point.

The Sterling by Music Man JP MAJ170 in a gorgeous Arctic Dream finish has a lightweight, highly contoured Mahogany body with a set neck design that is built to allow unfettered access to the entire 24-fret Rosewood fretboard. The ultra thin 3 piece Mahogany neck is incredibly comfortable to play and extremely fast, ideal for progressive metal, djent, shred or hard rock. The 7-string edition of the Majesty boasts an incredible tonal range, from aggressive lows and crushing rhythm tones, to thick middles and scorching leads.

The Majesty 170’s tone comes from the combination of its Mahogany body with two Music Man spec humbucker pickups that are designed to provide a crushing rhythm tone and gain-heavy lead tones, perfect for Petrucci’s fast paced work on the fretboard. The Majesty also offers a 12dB push-push frequency boost on the volume control, allow you to switch instantly from rhythm to lead settings at the push of volume control.

No metal or shred guitar would be complete without a great tremolo system, so the Sterling by Music Man JPMAJ170 comes with a Music Man spec modern floating tremolo system that is super smooth and incredibly dynamic, allowing you to do all of the tremolo tricks that your heart desires with Sterling locking tuning machines to keep it all in tune no matter how aggressively you play.
