If ernie ball would make their headstock look less odd I'd probably get a 6 string one. Right now I think the 7 string ones balance out the headstock a little better. But overall I think Ibanez look better and its hard to judge feel, its really opinion

Re: Why did John P go to Musicman?

Petrucci wanted a piezo and a 7-string model.
Also, the Ibanez JPM was basically a JEM with different neck, pups and pups switch.
EBMM approached him saying "hey, apart from the headstock, we give you anything".
So he did it.

So it was Jem with none of the things that make it a Jem?

Basically its like a blender without the blades, motor, pitcher, or electrical cord.

Re: Why did John P go to Musicman?

probley more money and maybe EB were willing to give him more options.

anyways looking at the state of some of the ibanez signatures ie. herman li, noddles. im not surprised he left

that being said the JEM and JS line are great

Re: Why did John P go to Musicman?

IMHO, Ibanez JPM is something like a USRG.
IMVHO, John switched to EBMM under Steve Morse friendship big influence.
Maybe i'm just dreaming....

Morse may have had a lot to do with it, yeah. John worships Steve.
