Sterling JP157 John Petrucci 7 String, Trans Black Satin
The JP157 is a great way to get your hands on a John Petrucci guitar at an affordable price. This 7-string model has a Nyatoh body with a striking figured maple top, a roasted maple neck and fretboard which means it’s hard-wearing and can withstand temperature and moisture changes, and 24 medium jumbo frets. It also has easy-to-restring locking tuners and a modern tremolo bridge which provides great tuning stability and accurate intonation.
For pickups, it has two Sterling by Music man high-output humbuckers which offer a dynamic tonal range with the classic warm tones of a humbucker and improved clarity and sustain. There’s a ‘push-push’ boost on the volume control and 3-way pickup selector making it easy to find your sound.
The JP150 is completed with Custom JP inlays and a 5 + 2 headstock with John Petrucci signature and has a subtle yet eye-catching Trans Black Satin finish.
Based on the John Petrucci Signature Series JP15, the Sterling JP157 features a roasted maple neck and fretboard with pearloid JP shield inlays, a 12dB ‘push-push’ boost on the volume control, and a modern tremolo system. Topped with highly figured Quilted or Flamed Maple for a beautiful finish.
