First off let me begin with this. Buy this guitar. It is the best guitar I have ever owned in my 30+ years as a guitar player. My dream guitar has always been a cross between a Gibson Les Paul, PRS, a Parker Fly, A Charvel, and a Fender Strat. This guitar is that, Pure and Definitive Tone. If your the kind of guitar player that plugs in and just solos and tone isn't that much of an issue, this will be way too much guitar for you. This guitar sounds great clean or dirty and really completes my sound. Thank God someone got the tremolo system right! It does what every you want when you want and how you want it without a hitch. If your the Metallica type player, there are other options for that kind of sound. But if you want great harmonics and fantastic tone and think your ready to handle a guitar of this caliber, then this is a must buy. Bottomline is this, I have owned many guitars over my life that really cant offer me the tone and sound I hear in my head, but I think this guitar with a bit more time adjusting will be the perfect guitar for soul shredders and heavy thrashers. Period.

The first jp6 with piezo that I received had some noise issues when switched to piezo pickups. I called ernie ball, did my research and turns out the piezos were not good. After a point I could no longer hear anything when switched to piezos. Sent my guitar back and received a new jp6 with piezo. Turned out its piezos also had problems, not all of them but the one on the A string. Plus its G string was going out of tune all the time. I called ernie ball to ask about their piezo pickups on jp6 and I was told that the whole piezo system was revised and the jp6 models that are manufactured after november 2013 have the new system. The ones that I received I think was before that date. So be careful if you're buying with piezo because apparently they have serious issues and you got to see if the guitar you're ordering is an old version. You can give the serial number to ernieball and they'll tell you when it was manufactured. At the end I received a full refund and bought jp6 without piezo and I'm very happy now. I wish it could have piezos but I no longer trust music man's piezo pickups, esp for old guitars. However, this is still a great company and I love my current jp6 without the piezos. And of course I'm very happy and thank to musician friend for helping me in this process. It was really easy to exchange the guitar for a new one and get the refund after etc. The guys that I talked to were really nice and tried to help. Thank you musicians friends

One of the best.

from Virginiar

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

After making a research of this JP6 with piezo pickup, I decided to buy one. This guitar is for a dreamer like me, play ability smooth and thin neck very comfortable to play. Action is low and pickups are sound good, for clean sound, neck pickup is sound thick and smooth, middle pickup sounds almost like strat, and bridge sounds bright like other guitar (not recoment for clean sound).When I blend with piezo, wow/ this a plus and it takes me to another level, this piezo bridge also has its own valume control which is nice.I play distortion through my B-52 tube amp, bridge pickup sound so tight,warm at the neck,not bad at middle. this guitar let me access to 24 fret very easy than other guitars I have ever played,the only a few things that I don't like are in some of the the upper fret has a little buzz,the control knobs look like kiss Hershey's chocolate,bridge pickup should be a little hotter. In conclusion ,this guitar is one of top of the line, good playing,sound good, whamy-bar stay in tune.I love this guitar and recommend you check on this one before buy anything else,you'll never disappointed.Just let you know this guitar equiped with 10-46 string (Slinky Titanium)

Almost the perfect guitar (ALMOST)

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

After trying my hardest to like a Parker Mojo Fly, I finally had had enough of it and it's failing parts so I traded it for an 09 EBMM JP6 with the mystic paint.It plays just as good as the Parker, the pezios sound better, you can put any pickups you want in the JP6 without having to hack them up to get them to fit like the parker and the JP6 has a bigger and more full tone as well. This one is a keeper.I didn't give it 5 stars because a push/pull coil tap should be made standard on an instrument this expensive. It's an easy fix but no one the owner should have to make. Also, the ones come with the liquifire/Crunchlab pickups which are ok at best. Bareknuckles are on my short list.

Total sweetness!

By Glen-_.k.I

from Tampa, FL

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

I went to the guitar store with a budget of ~ $1k in mind, but I should have known better. I spent a little over 3 hours playing just about every mid-priced guitar on the wall and nothing was talking to me. Finally, I was ready to leave without a purchase and I figured why not at least try the JP6 for fun.From the moment I laid my hands on the guitar it just felt like it was meant to be. The quality of this instrument, the sounds you can get with the pickup configurations, and the feel of the neck made it impossible to just walk away. I played it for about 10 minutes and I just knew it had to come home with me.The only negative I can say about this truly sweet guitar is the cost. However, given the quality of the instrument, it's components, and the awesome paint job (Mystic Dream), I can't say it's not worth it. If you have the cash, I definitely recommend you check it out.

Makes playing nearly effortless

By Eddie-_7q2e

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

I tried at least a dozen different guitars (SGs, Les Pauls, PRSs, Explorers, etc.) before choosing the Petrucci. The first thing that struck me was how easy it was to play fast. The string height is lower than most guitars, and the neck is smooth and thin. The second thing that struck me was how well it stayed in tune under abuse. I was totally sold when I figured out that I could get really sharp biting tones through the bridge pickups and still get a silky lead tone from the neck pickups.After playing it for six months, the only problem I have with the Petrucci is the location of the piezo/electric switch. Sometimes, I'll get really aggressive with my strumming and whack the switch on the up-strum, creating an obnoxious piezo + fuzz sound (or worse, no sound at all -- if plugged into the electric only input channel).

    Great guitar; too expensive.

    By Jawshuwa

    from New York

    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

    The value just doesn't add up. The Mystic Dream finish is amazing, but that doesn't make the guitar play any better. The humbuckers definitely punch out some gritty rhythm and are capable of buttery leads, very John Petrucci-esque through the right amplifier. The guitar is solid, the locking tuners are a dream, and the bridge is no more difficult to set up than a Floyd Rose, without the hassle of a locking nut.I haven't played with the Piezo pickup yet, but you could buy a Piezo bridge and strap it to a MUCH more affordable Ibanez, ESP, Schecter, et cetera. It's a great guitar with great looks and extreme playability, but even being a signature guitar, I think it costs too much for what it's actually worth.I'd trade it for an Ibanez JP model any day.

    Dude...

    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

    Wow. Went to go pick up some strings and saw this beauty on the wall. plugged it into a Mesa Road King... was the greatest musical experience of my life. The setup from the factory was flawless. The action is low, tuning is rock solid, the tremolo is as smooth as a fulcrum trem can get... amazing. The neck is unfinished and thin, very fast. May feel small to some, but it's streamlined for speed. Then there's the sound... wow. This guitar can do just about anything. The pickups sound like they have about the same output as a Gibson's 490/498 set. Just hot enough to allow you to go from pristine clean to metal. The middle position on the selector switch uses one coil from both pickups, so it gives a sweet Strat-like tone. Then there's the piezo pickup. You can use it alone to sound almost like an acoustic (almost!) or you can mix it with the magnetic pickups to add another dimension to their already wide range of sounds. It was so nice, I had to take it home. It sounds just as good through my Marshall!

    Beats Them All

    By Bald Guitar Dude

    from Fort Walton Beach, FL (mostly anyway)

    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

    I've been playing for almost thirty years... everything from country to metal. I currently own nine electric guitars including Fender, Gibson, Ibanez, Steinberger, and an Ed Roman EB1. Although each of my guitars has it's own distinct personality (and I love them all), after playing the Petrucci for almost a year... I have ZERO desire to even pick up my other guitars. They are all tucked away in cases while the Petrucci is being worked to death. It may not be the guitar for everyone, but it has proven to be the guitar I have dreamed of for years.Although the neck has a very different feel (kinda the same way a 2010 Corvette has a different feel than a vintage vet), once you grow accustomed to the high performance design it takes you places you've never been before. The gun oil finish on the neck is amazing. It feels extremely organic and it's NOT plasticy like so many guitar necks. The fit and finish are perfect. The array of tones I get with the piezo nd humbucker pickups is amazing.The tremelo stays in tune even when extremely abused. Amazing... considering there is no locking nut. If you (like me) have played old school style guitars all your life, you will need to give yourself a few hours to adjust to the feel of this beast. But after that... there will be no going back.Two thumbs of to Music Man for their work on this one.

    Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci 6 Electric Guitar w/ Piezo Bridge:

    The new JP 6 is one of the most beautiful guitars in production today. I recently purchased the Mystic Dream version with the Piezo Bridge. This instrument is flawless. From the time I saw the chameleon paint to the time I plugged it in I knew I had made a great decision. The first thing I noticed about this instrument was the size and overall weight. The JP 6 is one of the lightest guitars I have ever played and balance is dead on. The neck scale is 25-1/2" but feels small. This is good for reaching across frets. The body is slightly larger than the original to give the new JP6 more depth and control.The electronics are great as well. The Piezo system sounds amazing. The DiMarzio pickups give you complete access to a multitude of tone options. No matter what kind of music you like to play the JP6 can handle it. The finish on the neck is fast and smooth making it fun and easy to transcend the fret board. The action is set perfect right out of the box and it only took about 5 minutes to tune it up. The vintage tremolo is simple and very effective. I use the bar and test limits of notes almost every time I play and the JP6 is still in tune. The locking tuners and overall setup on this instrument are perfect.The JP6 comes with a custom case that allows you to store the guitar with the tremolo bar attached. This makes it very easy to pick up and play right out of the case. If you can squeeze it in to your budget I recommend you add one of these to your arsenal. They also come in the Ball Family Reserve edition with more finish options. They cost a bit more but are definitely worth the price. You will not be disappointed.
