October 20, 2021, a month ago
Ernie Ball Music Man and John Petrucci are celebrating 20 years of partnership with new versions of his JP and Majesty signature guitars. Guitar World Tech Editor Paul Riario continues his chat with the virtuoso about the stunning new axes in this new video.
The Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci Majesty 8 string signature guitar has arrived. This new Majesty 8 will be available in a limited quantity of only 100 pieces worldwide and offered in the original Mystic Dream signature finish.
The Majesty 8 string features a non-tremolo mahogany neck-through-body with basswood wings and ebony fretboard. The new multi-scale fretboard features 24 stainless steel frets and measures 27" on the bass side with a standard scale length of 25.5" on the treble side. This fanned fret, multi-scale design allows for a longer string length providing a comfortable amount of tension on the bass strings, with a traditional feel on the treble side for fluid string bends and solos.
The electronics package includes a 3-way selector switch with signature 8 string custom-angled DiMarzio Dreamcatcher (bridge) and Rainmaker (neck) pickups. Also included is a 3-way toggle that incorporates a piezo bridge system giving the Majesty a much focused and highly versatile pallet of tones. The Majesty 8 string will be hand-numbered on the back of the headstock and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
