A Great Blend of Old and New Petrucci Models

Designed in conjunction with Dream Theater's John Petrucci, the JP16 blends some of the best features of John's original signature models and the guitars he's playing today. From the basswood body to the roasted maple neck and smoky ebony fretboard, Music Man used nothing but premium woods. You'll love the return of the deep arm contour. A set of DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers can be run in multiple combinations to deliver everything from crystal cleans to over-the-top distortion. And the JP16 boasts a Floyd Rose 1000 Series locking tremolo.

Music Man JP16 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Premium tonewoods
  • Features built for performance
  • Floyd Rose 1000 Series Pro locking tremolo
Premium tonewoods

The Music Man JP16's body is made from lightweight and resonant basswood. Because of its tonal balance and sustain, this wood is a favorite among players who demand harmonically rich high-gain tones. The roasted maple neck is incredibly stable and figured beautifully, and the smoky ebony fretboard adds attack to your tone.

Features built for performance

Fans of previous John Petrucci Signature Music Man guitars will rejoice at the return of the JP16's scooped forearm contour. This feature aids in playing comfort, allowing for hours of playing. The thin-profiled neck is capped with 24 stainless steel frets for ease of playing and an increased lifespan. John's signature DiMarzio Illuminator humbucking pickups and the Music Man active preamp ensure you'll have plenty of output to drive the front end of any amplifier. And the push-push tone pot opens up even more pickup switching options, putting a variety of tones under your fingers.

Floyd Rose 1000 Series Pro locking tremolo

Floyd Rose and Music Man are two of the most respected names in high-performance guitar equipment. And the JP16 is outfitted with a genuine Floyd Rose 1000 Series Pro double-locking tremolo system that allows you to get extreme pitch control without tuning issues. The 1000 Series' low-profile design melds exquisitely with the clean lines of the JP16. And the tremolo cavity is back routed. This offers you the ability to raise the pitch of your notes for deep vibrato effects and over-the-top harmonic squeals.
