Comments about Sterling by Music Man JP70 7-String Electric Guitar:

First of all, I've been playing a Les Paul for about 10 years as my ONLY guitar. Why? Nothing else sounded as good to me. I've always wanted a 7 string though and I actually bought this one against my better judgement.

I usually don't care for basswood bodies and I ALWAYS swap the stock pickups when I buy a guitar. Not on this one - I was literally blown away by the sound of this thing. I was completely shocked. Distorted tones are clear, full and alive. Clean sounds are pristine and tight. Overall the sound is very tight but still very organic.

The bridge isn't bad and generally stays in tune after moderate dives. The switches knobs and jack all feel solid, nothing sketchy about them. Locking tuners are nice. Finish looks great. I have absolutely no issues with the width of the neck. The guitar is a pleasure to play.

Now on to the few cons. Maybe it was just mine, but it wasn't even close to set up when I got it. Intonation was out, lots of fret buzz due to action being too low. I actually had to put a different brand of strings on to get the intonation right. The nut seems kind of cheap and may need some mild work in the grooves. I also wish the 7 string JP guitar was a 26.5 or 27 inch scale rather than the 25.5. Thats not a big deal though, I just use a .060 for the low B. My Epi Les Paul came with a hardshell case, kind of wish this had as well.

Bottom line though, you will be shocked by how good this guitar is. It sounds amazing and is SO easy and comfortable to play. I am likely going to buy the 6 string version in the near future as well.

Comments about Sterling by Music Man JP70 7-String Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar around two weeks now and tuned it after I got it out of the box and have barely had to retune it since. Even after hundreds of dives on the whammy bar it refuses to go out of tune. Plays great and looks just as good.
