Cool NGD: Music Man JP6 mystic dream

So now I own a 2004 Ernie Ball Music Man JP6 in mystic dream finish.
I've just recorded some jazz improvisation using clean tones, here it goes:

The pickup switch has only 3 positions, but they sound really distinct.

What is "the head"?

Re: NGD: Music Man JP6 mystic dream

Oh, I really didn't play the "head", I just improvised the whole thing without thinking much.

I'm still not used to the neck, it's comfortable, but it feels narrower than the Jem's. Also, the frets are smaller than the Jem's, and I definitely prefer bigger frets. I'll play it for some time, and then I'll see if I can get used to it. The body contours are great.

I do love the middle position (bridge+neck) though, very strat-spanky tone.

Re: NGD: Music Man JP6 mystic dream

yes, the middle position sound you have has inspired me to rewire my humbucker strat with a three way switch.
thanks for posting the clip!

Great guitars, congratulations

I've had a JP6 (Peal Redbust) since 2005 and bought a Blue Dawn JP7 in 2007. They're very well built guitars and the neck is my favourite thing about them - narrower than an Ibanez but a little rounder.

Funnily enough, the only thing I'd change on the JP6 is the neck width... to me, it could be as wide as the Jem's... upper frets are too narrow to my hands.
