A gorgeous top, bolt-on construction and DiMarzio pickups.
The JP100D is based on the "Ball Family Reserve" JP6. The slightly larger body is capped with a figured, quilted maple top. This is a modern shredder's dream guitar that offers classy appointments with sleek modern styling. By popular demand, this model now comes factory-equipped with John's personal favorite: American-made DiMarzio LiquiFire and Crunch Lab pickups.
A neck pickup with a flowing, singing solo tone when used with a heavily overdriven amp and a clear chord sound with a clean amp setting.
The name says it all - "crunch" is what it's all about with a big, tight sound that's neither muddy nor thin.
Get impressive looks and killer performance on a budget. Order today.

Comments about Sterling by Music Man JP100D Electric Guitar:
I read a lot of revieiws, and ws really excited about htis guitar. I was a bit disappointed though. Now this is my opinion, but its based on facts, your opiono of these facts may differ.
The Finish= The Pacific Blue Burst is a mainly black guitar, with a tealish-blue burst on the top and the color doesnt go anywhere near the edges of the body, mine looks nothing like the stock photos. I realize its a "burst" that fades to the blakc body, but its still not much color and not like the photo. I expected a more vibrant blue like the photo, and more of the color, its pretty "dim" on my guitar. Mine was also dull, and had some light swirl marks. I dont think I got a "bad one" I think its "normal"
The pickups= The Neck pickup is pretty amazing, its as clear as a single coil, but its fat and punchy too, I was highly imnpressed by that. And the Bridge pickup is really good. But I had an ESP with EMG's, and it belw this bridge pickup away, but its preferenace/amp type. ** I cant believe how much more the -D model is compared to buying the JP100 and buying the Dimarzio pickups and gettng them installed or do it yourself.
The Frets= I get some fret buzz in spots, which is odd becasue the setup isnt really amazingly low. seems like it could go lower on the action. It plays good, but other reviews on JP100-D's pointed out "conservative setup" and I agree. The frets have really rough edges if your hand is on the sides of the neck you can feel them, they need filed down. Very odd
Body style= awesome, slender, comfortable.
overall is about a 8.5/10. I think its overpriced based on the -D model, it should be the price of the JP100 and include the dimazrio's in that cost
