Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci JP15 Japanese Maple Guitar, Exclusive Pitbull Audio Trans Gold

FREE 2-Day Shipping


As proud Music Man dealers several years running, we're extremely excited to bring you another gorgeous Exclusive Run! These are limited, unique, and built by the best of the best over at Ernie Ball Music Man.

Every aspect of this JP15 was carefully thought over to provide not only a different aesthetic option than Music Man's normal JP15 lineup, but also an enhanced tone as well. Our jaws all hit the floor when we unboxed this JP15. The figured Japanese maple top on this is beautiful and unique. We had never seen this wood before, but it was mesmerizing and we were immediately drawn to it. It's like a beautiful marriage of flame and quilt maple.

A roasted flame maple neck and fretboard continues to give the guitar the unique look we were after while also feeling absolutely amazing under your fretting hand. The roasted neck is divine and the fretwork is nothing short of spectacular on this. Stainless steel frets add a tiny bit to the overall brightness of the sound and best of all will last you virtually forever and won't develop divots if you do a lot of bending or press down hard on them. The black hardware seemed like an obvious choice to contrast the custom trans gold finish that we worked with the paint department to come up with together.

The JP15 commemorates the first 15 years of the Petrucci/Music Man collaboration and partnership. But it has endured on as one of the best JP designs out of the numerous to choose from. It feels thoroughly shred-ready but also has some immense versatility to it. It's not a guitar that can only do metal and prog rock, by any means. The pickups are powerful, but the Illuminators clean up very nicely as well. They're quite balanced and really give this guitar a lot of range. Of course, add in the piezo, and you've got quite the swiss army knife on your hands.

We are beyond thrilled with how this stunning exclusive run is turning out. If you're looking for a guitar that's unlike what anybody else has... Here you go! Whether you are a collector, a fan of John Petrucci, or just a fan of an immaculately built instrument with searing tones that has some uniqueness to it, then this is going to be a must-have.


The JP15 features a lightweight Okoume body with a figured maple top. Each beautiful finish complements the flame or quilt figuring with stunning effect. Roasted maple neck and fingerboard adds just the right amount of snap and brightness while providing more stability in ever-changing climates. The JP 15 is powered by twin custom DiMarzio Illuminator pickups, piezo bridge system and onboard 20db gain boost. Available in 6 or 7 string with Music Man JP tremolo, 3-way Toggle pickup selector and Music Man hardshell case.
