Need info on Petrucci's original custom USRG-like guitars
I asked a similar question to this over on the Petrucci forum, but never received an answer. Does anyone know the specs on the prototype guitars that Petrucci played prior to getting his actual production JPM models made? I am wondering if his guitar were maple-capped alder, or basswood (or maybe something else). I'm thinking that the two guitars shown in his "Rock Discipline" video must have been prototype models, as that came out befor the JPM model was introduced... maybe I am wrong. I'm trying to figure out for certain if he used a production model USRG with a Humbucker From Hell and a Tone Zone in it (clearly seen in both guitars shown in "Rock Discipline"). I'm thinking that "Images And Words", "Live at the Marquee" and the "Rock Discipline" vid were all done with the same pups combo, but the guitar woods are still in question.
Thanks for any help you can provide,
