As is to be expected of a coalition between Music Man and John Petruccie, the results of this collaboration are truly stunning - a completely modern design not for the faint of heart, for certain. Construction is very light Basswood, well balanced, with a neck heel to die for - tonally, full of the thick and fluid tone EBMM are known for, which is only made even better as it is translated directly into your amp by the Piezo bridge system. Then switch over to the DiMarzio Illuminators - or use both! - and push the volume knob to activate the built in pre-amp for a 20dB gain boost - and also use the tone knob to put both humbuckers in parallel! With this immense versatility, and most of the goodies you could wish for already built in - there's nothing the JP Majesty can't pull off.
And that's not even mentioning the finish! The Arctic Dream takes some inspiration from the Northern Lights - shimmering gorgeously between deep purple to a dark green as the light changes.
EBMM: 'The Majesty is the result of John’s unwavering demand for performance, playability and race inspired design. One of the most ergonomic and perfectly balanced instruments available, The Majesty features neckthrough body design, unparalleled upper and lower fret access, economical in-line control knob placement and new digital pickup switching capabilities which effectively eliminates delay between pickup selection. The Majesty is the exemplification of everything we know a John Petrucci signature model to be - innovative technology, versatile performance, and a sleek modern feel.'

We Welcome Part Exchange
We welcome part exchanges on items over £500. We realise that sometimes you need to “move something on” to get your new guitar. We give fair prices and once agreed we stick to them. The only thing we ask is that you accurately describe your guitar. We have plenty of happy customers from our part exchange scheme.
How it works – If you are local, you can simply call in. If you are not local we will assess your guitar and give you a valuation via phone/e-mail (we may ask for pictures). Once the price is agreed, we always stick to it, and your new guitar will be removed from the market so the deal can be concluded.
You can either send us your guitar, or we can use our courier to pick up for a small charge (UK only). Once the guitar is with us and any balance is paid we can dispatch your new guitar.
