The Sterling by Music Man MAJ100 in an Ice Crimson Red finish is a tribute to the Music Man Majesty guitar designed in collaboration with John Petrucci of Dream Theater fame. This innovative masterpiece features a highly resonant Mahogany body, contoured in the iconic Majesty shape that Petrucci developed with Music Man over a decade ago.
Incredibly sleek and perfectly balanced, the Sterling by Music Man MAJ100 features a uniquely shaped double cutaway Mahogany body contoured perfectly to offer complete and unfettered access to the fretboard. The set-in 3-piece Mahogany neck, with 24-fret Rosewood fingerboard embossed with custom JP inlays, features a sculpted heel and is ultra thin and incredibly easy to navigate.
The electronics include Dual Sterling By Music Man Humbucker pickups, both passive and wired in series with push/push volume knob that provides a 12dB boost when activated, which can be very useful in live situations, while the tone control and a 3-way pickup selector switch allow you to fine tune your sound. The hardware includes a Sterling by Music Man Modern Tremolo system with locking tuners to maintain tuning stability.
Many experts believe that the Majesty may be one of the most perfectly balanced and well proportioned guitars ever designed, and the Sterling by Music Man MAJ100 is built according to its precise specifications. The ergonomics on this guitar, including the positioning of the controls and the contour of its sculpted neck heel, make this one of the most player-friendly guitars ever constructed. Add to that the 12dB volume boost, and you have a guitar that is perfect for lead playing. Make no bones about it, this guitar is built for speed and outrageous volume and will make any shredder or progressive metal lead player very happy.
