      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

          This guitar is almost perfect. I dislike Stainless steel frets. They have too bright a sound. Once I put nickel frets in this guitar it will be perfect.

                I actually tried this guitar out and hands down THE very best guitar I've ever played. The feel of the neck and the different tone-woods incorporated within this is incredible. the thick tone and high end output from this beast of a guitar by far exceeds any other guitar I've played. JP is king!

                  This guitar is great! I have many different guitars, Gibson SG's, Fernandes, Fender, Ibanez, and this thing I think has topped them all, it even plays better than my Ibanez RG-450, which is very hard to beat believe it or not.

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

                  amazing!
                  I been playing guitar for 10 years now. I have a fender strat american, les paul traditional plus, ibanez rg and a taylor. And now this guitar. I was looking for a different guitar with a different but nice sound and this one is it. By far it kills any other guitar i have in construction. Th e guita is very well though, and everything has a reason, i love the body shape, amazing feeling neck, the switches adn the bridge is just plain amazing, always in tune and the guitar itself is a beaty. It feels and looks like such a custoem guitar, and it is. A lot of people say this is only a metal guitar, not true. Ofcourse i love proggresive rock and its amazing at it, but i play at a church and we play very U2 style kind of music, hillsong, delirious, switchfoot kind of thing and the guitar can do them all and sounds amazing at it. with the right gear ofcourse, dont try to do U2 with a dual rectifier or mark V, it wont work, but put this baby trough an ac30...tone heaven. Also the pick ups are all very different but nice sounding. Neck its fat and nice humbucker sound, middle sounds like a fat warm strat, love it and the bridge is killer. Dont be scared to buy this guitar thinking all it does is metal becasue it can do it all and very well....Love this guitar!!!!! get it! oH and the piezo is amazing amazing even trhough an electric guitar amp and trhough an acoustic its very nice....get it!!!!

                  Total sweetness!

                  By Glen-_.k.I

                  from Tampa, FL

                  Comments about 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.

                  One of the best.

                  Comments about 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)

                  Makes playing nearly effortless

                  By Eddie-_7q2e

                  from San Jose, CA

                  Comments about 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).

                  Almost the perfect guitar (ALMOST)

                  Comments about 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.
