Re: New baritone John Petrucci models
^^^^^ Don't let the "looks alone" feature steer you away from an incredible
piece of craftsmanship of sonic bliss. Yes the guitar is not "flashy", but it molds to your
body like no other piece of wood I've ever felt. Plus, the finishes on the
newer models are top notch as well as his signature inlays. I said WOOD.....
I just bought my JP6 less than 3 weeks ago and I've got to
say that it is the nicest guitar I have ever played/owned. The
neck is perfect, and the piezo system is just incredible. The thing
that impresses me the most on the guitar is the trem
system design. Talk about butter smoothness and staying out of
the way when playing. It's only drawback is the
range it can be pulled up, but other that that it's perfect in my mind.
Flutter is outstanding and it takes almost no effort at all to noodle.
I truly think that it puts all other FR and Edge
systems to shame, but that's just my opinion. I say this because
I currently own everything from an original edge, lo-pro6&7, 2 edge
pro's, 2 edge III's, and have played an original FR and ZR trem in the
past quite extensively. If I had the coin to drop on another guitar right now it
would definatley be another JPMM model. You should seriously get your
hands on one to atleast try it, because it just might change your mind
as quick as it did mine. Lastly, that purple quilt is to die for!!
