Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci JP15-7

A Shred Guitar Built to Do It All

Here is the new Ernie Ball Music Man Ball Family Reserve limited edition JP15-7 John Petrucci signature model - similar to models such as the JP6, however the JP15 features both a Roasted Maple neck as well as Roasted Maple top - two features that make the instrument incredibly stable in temperature changes. This JP15 comes in a very cool Eminence Purple finish which accentuates the flame maple top. Other features are classic Petrucci - with two DiMarzio humbuckers and a piezo bridge pickup for shimmering acoustic tones.

JP15 Tone

The JP15 is loaded up with John Petrucci's signature DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers. These pickups are made to handle a ton of gain, while still giving a heavy chunk to palm muted riffs, and easily shifting to 'dynamic and liquid' tone when soloing. They're bold and full of dynamic response and presence, and an added bonus in the JP15 model is the piezo bridge, which allows you to either single out your acoustic tones, or blend them with the magnetic pickups. It's really interested to hear the clarity that the piezo can add when using a ton of gain.

JP15 Feel

The JP15 has a roated maple neck that has a very comfortable "C" shape to it, with a very flat 17" radius that makes sweeping and tapping a breeze on the upper frets.

Why We Like It

We love the JP15, and all Petrucci models from Music Man for the fact that they are incredible players right out of the case, and once you get the hang of the controls, with the piezo switching and onboard boost, there isn't much you can't wring out of the JP15.

You Might Also Consider

For slightly edgier looks and a lighter weight, try the Majesty model with its basswood body and the awesome looking extended upper horn. With its thin body many of the Majesty models don't come out more than 7 lbs!
