    Easily best guitar I own.

    Going from a G&L built stratocaster to this beast is like going from a BMW to a Bugatti. The strat is a good guitar but you realize there is a class beyond the "upper class" strat when you play this guitar - The royal Majesty. It's expensive, but I have no regrets. This guitar can do things that none of my other guitars can do. The resonance and sustain really come through well. Basically I feel like I have a lot of control when I play this guitar. They sell it as a high performance instrument and I'm sold that they were truthful in that statement. I own 3 other electric guitars an Ibanez S Model, G&L Strat, and a Gibson SG.

    No onther guitar

    This is it, no other guitar is needed. I got my 7-string dream. This guitar feels light it was made for you! The weight, sound, and playability is so perfect. This is my first Music Man instrument and now i am considering selling all my other guitars because this one beats all of them! Sorry Jackson, sorry Ibanez, paid top dollar for those and still no match to the Music Man. I feel foolish for not buying one 25 years ago.
    This guitar makes you a better player!

    Awesome Guitar!

    I received this guitar promptly from Sweetwater and was instantly blown away. The fret work is perfect, set up was great, and the neck offers seamless access to the upper register. The pickups sound clear and articulate both on cleans and high gain applications.
    The only complaint I have is that the black chrome wore away from the bridge cover within a few weeks of playing it, so I called customer service at the Ernie Ball company and they are sending me a new one.
    Overall this guitar gets a 4.5 only because of the cosmetic issue with the bridge cover.

    Sound and Playability

    I have never written a review but this guitar compelled me to.
    First thing i noticed was how light it is.The body seems a good bit lighter than the neck and this effects the balance more than any other guitar i have. I thought when strapped on, the body wouldn't weigh enough to balance but it's perfect.When strapped on it becomes a part of you more than any of my others due to the balance and contouring of the body.
    I noticed next that all those licks involving 24th fret i could play without even touching the body.Loads of room.It's not in your way at all.The built in pre-amp sounds better than any of my overdrive/boost pedals.Much more dynamic and full of life.Playability is second to none.Seriously.2mm at 24th fret and 1.75 at the 12th for me anyway and prepare for guitar happy funtime.Usually it's a little harder to play between frets 5 and 12 than it is 12 and and above or 5 and below,however on this guitar it's not the case.
    String tension seems to be more even across the fretboard.
    And u know it sounds good already if JP was involved at all. I suggest u call Swetwater ext. 1263( Josh Dillon).I have been buying gear from him since 2000.Many thousands, and i have never been unsatisfied in any way at all.There is Swettwater.and then there is everyone else as far as knowledge, gear quality,customer service.I have no problem buying a guitar from them without playing it first.Send it right back you can.
