Eminent Playability and Unlimited Tonal Range

The Music Man JPXI BFR 6 gives you the latest evolution in the John Petrucci line of signature guitars. A collaborative effort between John Petrucci and the Music Man R&D team, this solidbody electric sports a combination of top appointments from Petrucci's JPX and BFR signature axes. The JPXI BFR 6 rosewood neck is streamlined to a symmetrical, extra-slim profile with a flatter 20" radius, the perfect foundation for fast, furious fretwork. Factor in a non-chambered body, mahogany Tone Block, maple top, custom DiMarzio humbuckers, and piezo vibrato bridge, and you've got a formidable shred machine. Grab a Music Man JPXI BFR 6 and dominate.

Designed for fast, precise playability

The Music Man JPXI gives you the ultimate in playability. John Petrucci is a guitar legend, famous for his astonishing technical prowess and his systematic demolition of musical boundaries with Dream Theater and Liquid Tension Experiment. This man knows exactly what he needs in a solidbody electric guitar. Since his first Music Man signature model, John has been working with the company to refine the concept. Continuing the enormous success of the JPX, the JPXI BFR 6 is a superbly balanced instrument, and thanks to its sculpted alder body, it's supremely comfortable - any guitarist at Sweetwater will tell you it's perfect for marathon gigs and sessions. John thinks of his talented hands as being "average-sized," and this is reflected in the extra-slim neck taper - a profile also favored by a broad swath of guitarists. Add to that a premium ebony fingerboard and 24 medium-jumbo stainless-steel frets, and you've got a high-speed, low-drag shredding machine.

Cover a wide tonal range

The Music Man JPXI BFR 6 makes you a master of the tonal universe. Its lightweight alder body contains a mahogany Tone Block and is topped with maple - a unique tone cocktail that gives you wonderful warmth and resonance you don't expect in a solidbody, along with prodigious sustain. Two DiMarzio humbuckers - a Liquifire (neck) and Crunch Lab (bridge) - serve up a universe of tone that takes you from chimey cleans through a wide range of delectable crunch, all the way to fearsome, face-melting shred. But there's more: a custom piezo floating vibrato bridge lets you engage in vigorous whammy action with absolute tuning stability, while giving you access to a range of gorgeous, nuanced acoustic sounds. Tonally speaking, there's very little this exquisite axe can't do for you.
