Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci JP12 7-String Electric Guitar:
I've been playing guitar for sixteen years of my life and I've never quite played an instrument like this. I've played six strings for a majority of my career but playing this guitar has improved my playing ten fold. Here's why: not only does having 7 strings make the scales more linear to different voicings, it opens up a whole new channel of chords and leads that can't quite be simply achieved by playing a 6 string guitar. Also, another great thing about this instrument is that it made guitar that much more fun to play and enjoyable to the point where I find myself picking up the guitar twice as much as I used to. Not only is it great for teaching which requires multiple tunings for different students, it's great for teaching yourself a whole new spectrum of the guitar as well. The way this thing plays is beyond flawless and is worth every penny you put into it. The finish on it is absolutely breath taking and the neck is the fastest neck I've ever played. The bridge on the guitar too is pretty much like something straight out of science fiction, no matter how hard you are on the wammy bar the guitar holds the tuning like an army of spartans holding the line in battle lol. And to top it all off, it's equipped with Dimarzio's crunch lab and liquifier to cut through mix to deliver that extra "oomf" when playing leads or bigger chords that have higher voicings that could be drowned out by lower notes. This guitar is perfect and I recommend purchasing this product as soon you have the money because this guitar has changed my life. I cannot thank Ernie Ball enough for putting out this product. So what are you waiting for?! Buy this guitar!
