The Sterling by Music Man JP160 John Petrucci Signature Electric Guitar in Pearl White is based on Petrucci's signature JP16, inheriting the same great build quality and characteristics at a much more comfortable price point. With a double locking tremolo, you can do all kinds of sonic sculpting, divebombing to your heart's content.
A Tempting Offer
The JP160 features a Mahogany body to give you warmth and sustain in your guitar tone, enabling both rhythm and lead playing to ring out with clarity and consistency. The Mahogany provides a real growl to the overall tonality of the guitar, making it great for the wide variety of styles encompassed by the man himself. The finish looks absolutely stunning, matched with double cutaways that allow you fantastic upper fret access.
The Killing Hand
A Roasted Maple neck gives you a firm platform to play from, slim enough to let rip with your scale runs and fret those complicated jazz shapes. Matched with a Rosewood fretboard the Sterling by Music Man JP160 gives you a beautiful playing surface that will let you light up the room, whether it's slick legato or big blues bends. The custom John Petrucci shield inlay at the first fret adds a touch of class to the neck, with the smaller JP inlays matching all the way down the rest of the 24-fret fretboard to ensure you never miss a note.
This Is The Life
The JP160 features two Sterling by Music Man humbuckers, voiced to Petrucci's specifications making them perfect for a wide variety of styles. They do searing lead tones, crunch rhythm and clean up to a splendid shimmer making sure you've got the tone for any occasion. A three-way switch gives you tonal choices in your pickup selection with a single volume and tone knobs to further sculpt your sound. The active 'push-push' pot gives you a 12 dB boost on tap, great for helping your guitar cut through during that lead section or adding some extra oomph to a powerful riff.
Bridges In The Sky
The Sterling by Music Man JP160 features a Lo-Pro Double Locking Tremolo that allows you to add texture and expression to your music with dips, divebombs, flutters and raises. Drop the whammy bar until all your strings are loose and it will return to concert pitch as soon as you release the bar. The six-saddle bridge ensures your intonation is always spot on and allows individual string adjustments when changing string gauge or making a truss rod adjustment. Locking Tuning Machines work in conjunction with the bridge piece to ensure your guitar upholds its tuning through even the most energetic of live performances.
The Sterling by Music Man JP160 John Petrucci Signature Electric Guitar in Pearl White is an incredible guitar with a raft of premium features at a reasonable price point. Petrucci is a masterful guitar player who knows a thing or two, so when he puts his name to a guitar you know you're getting a high-quality piece of kit.
