Who better to trust with building the ultimate player's tool than the master himself? This brand new Ernie Ball BFR JP15 John Petrucci signature is every bit as impressive as the player behind it. The Roasted Maple gives the instrument amazing stability and a highly unique play feel and finish. 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.
"The JP15 features a lightweight African mahogany body with a figured maple top. The subtle yet beautiful satin finish compliments the flame or quilt figuring with stunning effect. Roasted maple neck and fingerboard adds just the right amount of snap and brightness while providing more stability in ever-changing climates. The JP 15 is powered by twin custom DiMarzio Illuminator pickups, piezo bridge system and onboard 20db gain boost."
"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."
