"The Perfect Musical Instrument for Guitar Players" - JP

Sweetwater knows that magic happens whenever Dream Theater's John Petrucci and Ernie Ball put their heads together. The Ernie Ball Music Man Artisan Majesty 7 solidbody electric guitar is no exception, elevating the already-classic Majesty 7 to royalty status. The 7-string Artisan Majesty 7 features a luxurious African mahogany/maple body for updated looks and tone, dramatic cutaways for supreme upper-fret clearance, Schaller locking tuners, a custom piezo-tremolo bridge for unmatched tonal options, and Petrucci's own DiMarzio Illuminator pickups for crunchy rhythms, delicate picking, and thick, soaring lead tones.

Ernie Ball John Petrucci Music Man Artisan Majesty 7-string Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Deluxe body and neck updates for upgraded look, sound, and feel
  • Piezo floating trem bridge delivers unparalleled tonal options
  • 20dB gain boost to push amp tones and boost solos
Deluxe body and neck updates for upgraded look, sound, and feel

The John Petrucci Music Man Artisan Majesty 7 is a premium update to the classic Majesty 7, featuring an eye-catching, laser-etched maple top with translucent satin finish and gold hardware accents. Add to these an articulate, full-sustain Honduran mahogany through-neck with an ebony fretboard, and you have a player's dream that looks every bit as gorgeous as it plays.

Piezo floating trem bridge delivers unparalleled tonal options

John Petrucci requires a guitar that can handle everything from delicate fingerpicking to dive-bombed whammy solos. The Music Man Artisan Majesty 7 features a custom tremolo bridge to handle these and more, with an onboard piezo pickup to capture the full-bodied natural acoustic tone of the instrument. Blend in the piezo with the DiMarzio Illuminator magnetic pickups on the fly, with the simple 3-way toggle to move from a soft verse to crunchy prechorus in a flash.

20dB gain boost to push amp tones and boost solos

One of the defining features of all Music Man John Petrucci signature guitars is the forward-thinking electronics. Petrucci has recently moved to an active preamp system in his guitars, reflected here in the Artisan Majesty 7, with intuitive push-pull pots. Engage the volume pot for a +20dB output jump to push your amp over the edge, or engage the tone pot for a single-coil sound to clean up your chord voicings and lead lines. Resident Dream Theater fans here at Sweetwater love the versatility in this new addition to the Music Man Majesty series.

Ernie Ball John Petrucci Music Man Artisan Majesty 7-string Electric Guitar Features:
  • Mahogany neck-through construction for unmatched sustain
  • Ebony fingerboard for articulate solos
  • Petrucci DiMarzio Illuminator pickups for crunchy rhythms, delicate picking, and expressive lead work
  • Onboard piezo pickup - blend acoustic and electric tones to explore new colors!
  • Active preamp adds a +20dB gain boost to solos

Blown Away

I have had this guitar for about a year so I think I have a good feel for this instrument and its pros and cons. BLUF: This guitar will blow you away. I did a lot of research before I bought this guitar and knew this was the one. If you are looking for a guitar chameleon with great playability and sound, you won't be disappointed. Sound: I play through a Vox AD100VT. This guitar can get any sound you want: crunch, jazz, clean, acoustic-like, metal, you got it. It took some tweaking to get a good jazz tone, but I was able to get the others pretty easily. The piezo is great, I can get great clean tones. It won't sound exactly like an acoustic guitar, but with some reverb, it is dang close. The 20db push-push knob is great too for beefing up your sound during a solo or getting higher output. The middle knob splits the pickup for a single coil sound which is good for getting versatile sounds, nice for blues. The pickups sound great, very clean and not muddy. I haven't experimented with the stereo/mono output switching. All in all, you can get most any sound you need out of this guitar. Features/Feel: This guitar is loaded with features. The tuners are great and I have no trouble with the guitar getting out of tune with the tremolo. The shape is great, I can get up on the high e string on the 24th fret with no issues. Has the best feeling neck I've ever played, and it's smooth up through the body, neck is not screwed on. Sustain is great, stainless steel frets feel nice, lets the strings bend really nicely, and I really dig the ebony fretboard. I've heard a lot of people complain about the way the guitar looks. I personally think it looks great, and the wood grain looks really nice in person. The guitar also sits really comfortably in my lap when I play sitting down. I usually don't care for gold hardware, but I think it's a nice touch on this instrument. Overall, it's just great looking and really fun to play. Also, I didn't realize until I got it, but this guitar is SUPER light, Only about 7 pounds. Great when you are playing standing up for a long time. I haven't played the non-artisan majesty so I can't comment about the difference between the two. According to my own fact finding, I believe the only difference is the wood of the guitar and the finish (paint/hardware color/etc). Cons: I have only found one thing I don't like about this guitar. The placement of the magnetic pickup switch is very cumbersome for me. When I strum chords, I usually have the switch in the middle position. Due to the placement of my hand/arm as I strum, I always push the switch into the bridge (bottom) position. That's a bummer, but that's a small price to pay for the rest of what I get. Another thing to be aware of is the gold finish on the bridge wore off very quickly. Within a month, the gold at the place I tend to rest my palm started to rub away. Not a big deal to me, adds character and shows that I use it a lot. Final notes: Besides getting into boutique guitars, this is the Lamborghini of guitars. This was my first seven string guitar, and it will probably be my last. I also have a six string tele that I like using to make sure I don't "forget" how to play a 6 string (the absence of that seventh string will throw you off if you), but I don't think I'll ever buy another guitar until I lose this one or it falls apart from playing it so much. In which case, I'll buy another. The guitar looks great, sounds great, and feels great. It's a lot of fun to play and I am very impressed and happy with this purchase.
