REVIEW: Sterling By Music Man JP70

JP70Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci’s Ernie Ball Music Man signature guitar is a real pro-level piece of kit, and one of those sig instruments that is even able to transcend its association with a particular artist and instead become adopted by players at large. Besides Petrucci you can often see them in the hands of Joe Bonamassa and Periphery’s Mark Holcomb, for instance. But the asking price – although well worth it – is out of the reach of many players. Sterling By Music Man to the rescue! After successfully offering six-string JP-60 for a few years, the brand has now released its first seven-string version, the JP70.

JP70 Prototype

Keep your eye on the Sterling By Music Man Facebook Page in case they release more pics of this new John Petrucci JP70 model! You can read more from the company inĀ this thread on sevenstring.org, but here’s the deal: in the USA these two colours (Transparent Green Burst and Transparent Purple Burst) will be available via independent dealers, while a black satin version will be exclusive to Guitar Center/Musician’s Friend. International availability will be determined via meetings with international distributors (such as my buddies at CMC Music Australia) during NAMM.
