Sterling by Music Man John Petrucci Signature JP157DFM - Eminence Purple

Sterling by Music Man

John Petrucci Signature 7-String Model Equipped With DiMarzio Pickups and an Array of Features That Deliver Next Level Tone and Playability

The Sterling by Music Man John Petrucci Signature JP157DFM, in a gorgeous Eminence Purple finish, boasts a long list of signature appointments designed to suit one of progressive metal’s most impressive shredders.

The JP157DFM features a highly contoured double cutaway Mahogany body with a Flame Maple veneer top, contoured to allow easy access to its entire 24-fret Roasted Maple fingerboard which is embossed with custom JP inlays and a special decorative inlay at the first fret. The neck is exquisitely crafted from Roasted Maple with 25.5“ scale length and a 16“ fretboard radius, making it super thin, incredibly comfortable, and extremely fast.

The Sterling by Music Man JP157‘s versatile sound is the result of its impressive electronics. Featuring the same set of DiMarzio humbucker pickups that Petrucci uses in his guitars, these being Dimarzio Crunch Lab and Liquifire humbuckers, a 12dB push/push boost on the volume pot, and a sturdy new 3-way pickup selector switch, the JP157 allows you to blend pickup voices with ease and boost your lead sound with a simple push on the volume knob, giving you a crushing rhythm tone and scorching lead tone that really stands out from the mix during lead playing.

No John Petrucci signature guitar would be complete without a rock solid tremolo system, and the JP157 does not disappoint. Featuring a Sterling designed modern tremolo system with stainless steel saddles and a set of Sterling designed locking tuners, you can bend notes flat and pull them sharp as much as you want without tuning becoming an issue.
