New Petrucci EBMM, anyone got pics?

Hey guys, saw John last night, and he played the whole set (minus Jaws of Life) with a 6 string, quilted maple top, nice sunburst (kinda les paulish), bound neck, and im not sure if it was a neckthru, set neck, or if it just had a finished neck...

Had a piezo, but he didnt use it at all... DSonic with the bar to the neck, too, and some kind of weird mounting rings... pups were not directmounted...

Thats what struck me as strangest, all the talk always about musicman gunstock oil/wax thing for their necks (what makes them great), and last night Johns axe and LaRue Bongo basses all had necks finished in the same way as the body.....


Anyway, if anyone has pics of this beast id appreciate it, its one hell of a beautiful axe...

It's his new prototype. He loved the 20th Anniversary model so much, that he had a custom one made for himself ( you can see it on the Score DVD, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDqKP...elated&search=) and now he and EBMM are changing some stuff so it will become his new Sig. guitar.
The on in the pic above is his newest version, not the 'Score' guitar.

Re: New Petrucci EBMM, anyone got pics?

Darn, beaten to posting that pic! I saw it on Petrucci's website the other day. I think I prefer the Mystic Dream finish and most of the solid colours over that one tbh...I don't especially like the colour though, plus the quilt looks a little too undefined for my liking (may just be the pic, or the fact that it's a prototype).

Re: New Petrucci EBMM, anyone got pics?

There is an entire thread on the EBMM forum in which this model was revealed, and people in general were critical of it. The specs of the model are talked about, including the fact the the body is made out of alder with the EBMM mahogany tone blocks like the ones on the 20th annivesary Silhouette (vs. basswood on current JP models) and the neck is made out of mahogany (vs. birdseye maple on current models).

Saw his new guitar posted on sevenstring.org, I think it looks very nice, I like the quilt top and the color, i'd love to hear how it sounds and it would be awesome to see him live.

Hah, I think it looks even worse in that thread on the EBMM forum. Not my cup of tea at all, I'm afraid. Even worse, it'll probably cost a lot more than the current model, which is already £1300-ish for a solid colour, and £1500+ for one in Mystic Dream, and that's without even having piezos included!

Man, in the pic it looks bland, in the flesh its stupidly stunning

And i hate well defined, deep quilts, so i really like this one being so subtle... i just cant get past the finished neck, tho.... :/

Re: New Petrucci EBMM, anyone got pics?

Ahahahaha, realised what it is that's putting me off...the arm contour isn't like on Petrucci's current guitars, it's more like a standard one. What are those of us who liked the uniqueness and individuality of it supposed to do now?

:edit:


Just read some of the EMBB forum thread, and seen the two pics side by side on page 3...the 'latest' model is pretty horrid, to my eyes, but the other one isn't quite so bad. Still prefer the solid colours though.

Re: New Petrucci EBMM, anyone got pics?

After reading all 17 pages of that thread, I felt like crying at the futility of it all.

First, there were the guys who gave honest opinions, good and bad. Then there were the guys who attacked the guys who gave negative opinions. Then Sterling Ball waded in, also pretty hostile towards the negative opinions; understandable, perhaps, but both sides could have been a little more diplomatic about it. Then John Petrucci made a post, and sent them all into a frenzied race to thank him for all the effort he went to to post on the forum and generally praise him to the heavens for bothering to exist at all, then some more negative opinions on the guitar, then thread lock.

Gaaaaaahh...those guys might think that forum is the best on the internet, but its not a patch on here.
