"The Perfect Musical Instrument for Guitar Players." - JP

John Petrucci with his Ernie Ball Music Man Artisan Series Majesty solidbody electric guitar may very well be the reigning monarch of shred. When it comes to pure technical prowess and agression it's hard to find anybody that beats Dream Theater's axe-man. Sweetwater knows that when JP put his head together with Ernie Ball Music Man for what he feels is the best instrument for guitarists, you can be sure the Artisan Series Majesty is nothing if not pure royalty. Get yourself a Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty Artisan and claim your spot at the top today!

Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci Artisan Series Majesty Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Deluxe updates to the Majesty body and neck design for a new look, sound, and feel
  • A custom JP/MM piezo floating tremolo bridge gives you the ultimate in control and tonal options
  • Active on-board preamp includes a 20db gain-boost and a passive coil-tap
Deluxe updates to the Majesty body and neck design for a new look, sound, and feel

The Petrucci Majesty line of solidbody electric guitars is a sharp departure from what we've come to know from JP and Ernie Ball Music Man, and gloriously so! The eye-catching design offers you a mahogany neck-through construction with a laser-etched maple top, angled headstock for sustain, gold hardware, and a beautiful translucent satin finish. Every bit as gorgeous looking as it is playing, the Artisan Majesty is, as far as John's concerned, the best Petrucci you can get.

A custom JP/MM piezo floating tremolo bridge gives you the ultimate in control and tonal options

John Petrucci can do it all and needs a guitar that can too. Designed in conjunction with JP and Ernie Ball Music Man, the preprietary peizo floating tremolo system gives you freedom of expression you have to experience. You can rest easy knowing your tuning's stable with the Schaller locking tuners, ensuring your trem returning to perfect position every time. And who can forget the piezo system giving you amazing full-bodied acoustic tones on demand? The Artisan Majesty's trem system can in fact do it all and more.

Active on-board preamp includes a 20dB gain-boost and a passive coil-tap

One of the defining features of all John Petrucci signature guitars is the forward-thinking and immaculate-sounding electronics. Recently JP has gone to an active preamp system in his guitars, offering you push/push control over a 20dB gain-boost and over a passive coil-tap when in the dual pickup position. Need to push your amp over the edge for a screaming solo? Just tap the volume control for a huge output jump! Want that single-coil sound for your clean passages? That one resides in your tone control. Nothing is holding you back from all the tones in your head.

Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci Artisan Series Majesty Electric Guitar Features:
  • Mahogany neck-through construction gives you added sustain
  • Dimarzio Illuminator pickups will get you that much closer to JP's sound
  • Built-in active preamp adding a gain-boost and coil-tap to your sonic arsenal
  • Custom JP piezo floating tremolo system for total control and a variety of tones
  • Schaller locking tuners to strengthen your tuning stability
  • Laser-etched flame maple top for a killer look
  • Comes with a hard case
Play with royalty with the Ernie Ball Music Man Artisan Series Majesty!

Despite the long wait and high price tag, this guitar is everything. It is supremely comfortable and wants to be played. It really can handle any style of playing you throw at it. The craftsmanship is top notch with the fit and finish on par with guitars twice the price. Another win for Music Man!

Sweetwater Advice

Mitch Gallagher

Dream Theater's John Petrucci has amassed quite a line of signature guitars from Music Man; 6-strings, 7-strings, higher-end, entry level -- these outstanding instruments cover a wide range of tonal and musical applications and offer maximum playability whether you're playing a simple melody or shredding arpeggios at light speed. Now, the Petrucci signature family has expanded with a new arrival: the Majesty Artisan. The Majesty Artisan features a more traditional look, yet it still incorporates all of the Petrucci-specified features, such as his signature floating trem with built-in piezo pickup for acoustic tones, Schaller locking tuners, dual DiMarzio Illuminator humbucking pickups, and more. The guitar has a through-neck design, featuring a mahogany body/neck, with a laser-etched maple top, an ebony fingerboard, custom JP-Majesty inlays, 24 stainless-steel medium-jumbo frets, fully shielded electronics, and an onboard preamp providing instant gain boost when you push on the volume knob. The Majesty Artisan is available in 6- and 7-string versions; I received the 6-string in the gorgeous Marrone finish for my evaluation. In use, the Majesty Artisan is incredibly comfortable to play: weight balanced, nicely contoured, with a fast neck carve that just begs you to let the notes fly. The flat neck radius works for chording and for single-note lines. The pickups provide an articulate, rich tone, with controlled bottom end. The 3-position pickup selector actually gives you four choices in conjunction with another knob/switch that changes the configuration when both pickups are on. You can easily go from bright, clear, chiming tones to chunky, crunchy rhythms to soaring, singing leads. Then, pop on the gain boost and push it over the top for roaring chords and screaming leads. Hit another switch, and you're instantly playing a sparkling, ringing acoustic tone. Talk about versatility! Tone, sustain, flexibility, versatility, craftsmanship, the Music Man Majesty Artisan has it all.
