Signature John Petrucci 8-string with multi-scale neck.

The Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci BFR Majesty 8 8-string electric guitar delivers progressive rock and metal tone with innovative design. Created for Dream Theater's legendary guitarist John Petrucci, this signature 8-string combines premium components for pro-level performance. The mahogany body with maple top resonates fully while the 27" to 25.5" multiscale ebony fingerboard keeps bass strings tight and treble strings slack for fluid playability across all eight strings.

Rock-Solid Construction and Playability

The John Petrucci BFR Majesty 8's mahogany body with maple top provides a rigid, balanced foundation for the 25.5" scale length neck. Its oil-finished rock maple neck offers a fast, comfortable profile for shredding solos and intricate rhythms. With a versatile pickup system, innovative fanned-fret design and solid construction, the John Petrucci BFR Majesty 8 empowers you to develop a vast range of skills and discover your own progressive voice.

Flawless Intonation Through Innovative Fret Design

The JP BFR Majesty 8's 24 stainless steel frets are arranged in a gradual fan, measuring 27" on the bass side and 25.5" on the treble side. This multi-scale layout creates balanced tension and intonation for distortion-free power chords, crystal-clear arpeggios and screaming leads. The fanned frets enable you to explore the extended range and tune the 8th string down to F# for a rumbling low end.

Premium Pickups Deliver Focused Tone

The John Petrucci BFR Majesty 8 comes equipped with DiMarzio Dreamcatcher and Rainmaker humbuckers, custom designed for John Petrucci's signature sound. A 3-way toggle switch lets you choose the bridge pickup for aggressive leads, the neck pickup for warm chords or combine both for complex layers. A separate 3-way mini-toggle activates the piezo bridge system, blending resonant acoustic tones with the humbuckers for a highly versatile palette of tones.

Built for Progressive Metal Prowess

With its blend of acoustic resonance and high-gain tones, versatile sound-shaping controls and fast neck, the John Petrucci BFR Majesty 8 was created for progressive metal mastery. Experience Petrucci's vision for progressive 8-string playing.
