... overcomes all my expectations ...

Michael K. 877, 24.04.2016
For the first time, I have been playing the guitars of the noble, yet family small business / Custom Shops Music Man, including several John Petrucci models.

The Majesty is, according to MM, the new flagship in the John Petrucci series and is to be in the ranges sound, playability and ergonomics everything so far in the shade ... and it does, and how!

Optics:
As is well known, there is a dispute about taste. At this point is to say that the Majesty looks really much better than in the photos you can find online. The body shaping is hardly recognizable in the photos.
In my case (Artisan Marrone), it is very difficult to get the lower jaw up again in the given time, the guitar looks gorgeous (totally horny one can not actually write ^ ^).
In the first band the Majesty logo can be seen, and a part of the Music Man fan community has left out online that this logo still has a black border (which supposedly looks "cheap"). I'm not sure if this is the case, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea .

Processing:
Who already owns Music Man guitars, knows that this company is playing in another sphere as regards processing. Everything is piekfein processed, incl. The inlays, the transitions of different woods, the whole hardware ... better it does not go.

Playability:
...Wow. As mentioned above, I already own several MM JP models, which all have a playability, which looks for their own ... the MM Majesty goes a further step: the neck is slightly differently shaped than the previous Petrucci models, it reminds one Mixture of the MM models of the JP series and the original Ibanez JP (1992 - 1999), is thus still a bit flatter. The radius is indicated by 17 and is therefore nearly flat = all shredders get shining eyes here.
Thanks to the new shape, the cut at the Oberhorn, you can easily go up to the 24th fret without the need to change the handrail. Simply incredible.
The guitar fits very nicely to the body, the support for the right hand is as usual very very pleasant, all controls can be easily and directly operated.
The other finish (matt) changes the playability a bit. The previous MM JP models had a lacquered neck except for the original model, this one feels more like "normal" MM necks (polished and oiled) and has a more pleasant feel for me (but taste).
In addition, the guitar is very light and can be worn even during gigs for hours without getting shoulder problems. Perfectly balanced should also be mentioned.

Features:
The guitar has 2 humbuckers which are split-bar (push-push tone poti), a 20db boost (push-push poti volume poti, the boost is adjustable on the back) and a pushpoti on the piezo poti (mono-stereo as far as I can see have)
The volume of the piezo signal can be adjusted (bass + treble also adjustable).

Sound:
... incredibly direct.
Also the previous MM JP are very direct, but the Majesty has a much more balanced, round, central, defined and violent. Every sound seems totally transparent, even with JP-Shreds (at this point it is to say that a beginner does not enjoy to listen to every little bug).
High tones have more meat on the bones, sound very big and round ... in the deep reaches the Majesty is incredibly tight, fast and yet fat. Chords are also defined with a lot of distortion and appear like a huge sound wall that comes therefore.
The sound is clearly marked by the master's signature but makes a hammer in every hard rock / metal combo (Jazzers could also find their sound here, because the guitar also convinces with pearly tones and transparent heights. Let the fingers of it, this is unfortunately nothing for you, I'm sorry at this point).


Conclusion:
I am totally overwhelmed by the Music Man Majesty Artisan Marrone 6-string. The look, the playability, the sound ... it all speaks for itself. The price is proud, but totally justified.
My recommendation: the surcharge for the Artisan accept, the previous colors (blue, red, white, black and Arctic Dream) look in my opinion in real rather cool and not so pretty, but is also here taste.

I am so far that I am probably synonymous still the 7-string version (and no I have definitively not too much money or am rich or something, I'm simply convinced of the Majesty as well as no other guitar so far ).

Just try the guitars shop of your trust and the building blocks are amazing.

An exceptional instrument.

poupignon, 02.08.2018
We no longer present the majesty as the guitar of petrucci.
She is up to the artist but what is surprising is that it is not limited to his sound.
I use it for pro studio recordings as live and I must say that it excels in both areas (thankfully saw the price you say ^^).
Aesthetically this instrument is a marvel, the woods are beautiful and the mechanical gold are a plus non negligible.
In terms of comfort it's really super-comfortable we can get the 24th fret without any difficulty, the placement of the knobs is very well thought everything is super accessible, the bridge musicman custom is just great.
As for the sound is his best asset, this guitar is extremely versatile we can play the dream theater like blues / jazz guthrie govan. There is the possibility of splitting the humbuckers in two single coil and it is surprising coming from a guitar assigned to the base to an artist like petrucci.
The whammy bar sounds like hell! And the push / pull knobs with the boost is just great for the solo.
The piezo is a marvel we have a range of sounds even wider.
The guitar is delivered in a super hard case and is ready to play as soon as it is unpacked need to adjust as the Gibson I speak knowing I have a flying v that was completely out of sync the first time
Clearly this guitar is an instrument of exception on the quality of manufacture, finish, comfort and sound.
Its price is more than justified I would do this purchase without hesitation I can only recommend it but it is not suitable for any purse unfortunately.
IF I had to describe this instrument in one word: surprising.
