Who better to trust with building the ultimate player's tool than the master himself? This Ernie Ball BFR John Petrucci signature is every bit as impressive as the player behind it. It is light, comfortable and extremely fast, with unrestricted access all the way up to the last fret. The tonal balance on this guitar is exceptional, with a pronounced midrange, tight bass response and a very modern overall tonality. Moreover, this guitar is ergonomically superior, making it an ideal choice for longer stage performances or studio sessions.
"Ball Family Reserve is a celebration of our heritage in instrument craftsmanship which features some of the finest figured tone woods and finishes available. These rare pieces are offered in limited production runs and allow us to present instruments to the public that were previously reserved for family and our loyal artists."
