Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this 20th anniversary JP6 from our friends over at Music Man.

John Petrucci's alliance with Music Man is much more than just a few signature models - it's an entire fleet of instruments with a totally unique approach to every aspect of guitar craft. The JP6, a revolutionary, ergonomic shred machine that breaks the mold by offering equal parts speed and musicality, has been in front for quite some time. 

This one is a special release to commemorate 20 years of collaboration and innovation between John and the Ernie Ball crew. It looks absolutely killer and continues the trend of awesome aesthetic choices that we've seen coming from Music Man this year. These are only going to be available in limited quantities, which makes them all the more special. Whether you're a collector or a discerning guitarist that demands an extremely high level of craftsmanship and musicality out of your instrument, this one checks all of the boxes for a modern-day rock machine.

Tone-wise, you know the drill: Molten, searing tone comes pouring out of this guitar with ease. Dial up the gain and the guitar never loses clarity or focus, no matter the volume. Bring the distortion down a bit, and the pickups purr with a smooth, throaty quality perfect for quieter passages. The neck on this one feels immaculate. It has the classic John Petrucci comfort - round, comfortable and lightning fast.

What a way to celebrate their 20-year relationship! They hit this one out of the park, for sure.
