Beautiful JP!

20.07.2016
So first of all, on the level of the visual aspect, it really throws! The purple, for my part is extraordinary, there is a black gradient that goes to the purple to the center of the guitar, we notice the features of the wood, and the shades are splendid! The head of the guitar is similar, with good finishes, with bonus, the small signature of Petrucci, which is not really useful even if I am fan of what it does.

At the level of the neck, it's top, it feels that it is a 7 strings obviously but it is not so huge, it feels good and it slips by itself, the acute are hyper accessible but a little less than the Ibanez UV70P from a friend, it's still very easy to access. The mother-of-pearl inlays are very well made, nothing wrong, the box one with the logo JP, that also throws it! The key is of good quality.

Regarding the jack input, for my part, it unscrews a little after a lot of uses, just tighten it, but the best would be to change it for a better quality.

The mechanical lock is very useful, my guitar does not move, with one exception: when I use the vibrato, this one disagrees, attention I speak of a rather aggressive use, I think we can correct this Detail by going to have it settled at a luthier, but it will be necessary to separate for some time ... I have not yet had this courage ...

As for the vibrato, the only slight defect is that you have to aim it with a small key to install it on the guitar, so when you want to store it in its cover you must go look for this small key (that ' Do not lose ...) and disassemble the vibrato. But it remains a small detail without too much importance!

Now about the sound, and it's great but it lacks a bit of saturation sharpness, I think it would be necessary to change the microphones, and here you are with a perfect guitar in my opinion at a lower cost compared to a real Music Man not accessible for all unfortunately because they are really overpriced ... Otherwise I especially appreciate the intermediate position, clean with a small chorus and a reverb, it is a delight! The microphone in saturation is really nice when it comes to solos, especially in the high, it is close to the grain of our friend Dream Theater!

So, I find that this guitar is really sublime, very pleasant to play, we do not get tired of its black / violet finish that is discreet but imposes as it should. The cover provided with done the job, but I plan to buy a hardcase to preserve it more.

I strongly advise you!
