The JP15 cel­e­brates the 15th of 17 years of cre­ative part­ner­ship be­tween John Petrucci and the Ernie Ball Mu­sic Man fam­ily. Each of John Petrucci’s sig­na­ture model in­stru­ments is unique, and all mod­els re­main cur­rent pro­duc­tion in­stru­ments. The JP15 fea­tures a light­weight African ma­hogany body with a fig­ured and roasted maple top. For the 2017 spring col­lec­tion, Mu­sic Man has adopted an eye-catch­ing teal fin­ish; the sub­tle, yet beau­ti­ful teal gloss fin­ish com­pli­ments the flame or quilt fig­ur­ing with stun­ning ef­fect. A roasted maple neck and fin­ger­board adds just the right amount of snap and bright­ness, while pro­vid­ing more sta­bil­ity in ever-chang­ing cli­mates. The JP15 is pow­ered by twin cus­tom Dimarzio Il­lu­mi­na­tor pick­ups, a piezo bridge sys­tem and on­board 20db gain boost. Rear panel trim­pots al­low used cus­tomi­sa­tion of the piezo/mags mix, boost level, and piezo tre­ble and bass lev­els. The JP15 is avail­able in six- or seven-string op­tions with a Mu­sic Man JP tremolo, three-way tog­gle pickup se­lec­tor and Mu­sic Man hard­shell case.
