Music Man JP15 Piledriver BFR John Petrucci

The Music Man JP15 “Piledriver” BFR John Petrucci is the latest in a series of amazing John Petrucci signature models. This special-edition Music Man JP15 Piledriver BFR John Petrucci was crafted by Ernie Ball Music Man’s top luthiers and features an exclusive “Piledriver” finish. Boasting slick, comfortable playability, a big, bold tone and striking looks, this limited-run double-cut is sure to be a standout in your collection.

The Finest Tonewoods

The Music Man JP15 Piledriver BFR John Petrucci boasts a full, resonant tone thanks to its lightweight Okoume body, which has been carefully contoured for maximum playing comfort.

Okoume delivers a rich and warm midrange that’s similar to Mahogany and has a Spalted Maple top which offers a beautiful, unique wood grain that is enhanced by the gloss finish.

Effortless playability is catered for by the Figured Roasted Maple neck which is durable and withstands humidity shifts as the moisture was removed during the roasting process.

The 25.5" scale neck is topped with a Roasted Birdseye Maple fretboard which is just as durable as the neck, featuring 24 stainless steel frets adorned with white shield inlays. The 5-bolt sculpted neck joint facilitates upper fret access, allowing you to pull off the soaring high-register bends and lead runs with ease.

Custom Wound Pickups

Electrifying the Music Man JP15 Piledriver BFR John Petrucci’s natural voice are a pair of DiMarzio Illuminators humbuckers, which are John Petrucci signature pickups with DiMarzio, which deliver everything from huge, crushing overdrive to tight, rhythmical tones to smooth, expressive leads.

Premium Hardware

Ernie Ball and the Ball Family Reserve are amongst the finest guitars out there, which is why they’ve equipped it with a top-notch hardware spec. A set of black Schaller M6-IND locking tuners handle the rock-solid tuning stability whilst the fluid Music Man custom piezo floating tremolo with square cover and solid steel saddles.

Ball Family Reserve

Whilst every guitar and bass that Ernie Ball Music Man makes is a high-calibre instrument, the BFR (short for Ball Family Reserve) range is the cream of the crop. BFR guitars are made in very limited numbers and celebrate Ernie Ball’s legacy of exceptional craftsmanship. These rare instruments are always made with the finest tonewoods available and adorned with exclusive finishes.

Only 65 of the Music Man JP15 Piledriver BFR John Petrucci are being made so be sure to snap this one up before it goes!
