The Ernie Ball Music Man John Petrucci JP15 is the first standard production model John Petrucci guitar to come with a Roasted Maple neck and fretboard. Also for the first time on any Music Man guitar featuring a Roasted Maple top…

The JP15 features a lightweight African Mahogany body with a figured roasted Maple top. The subtle yet beautiful Sahara Burst satin finish compliments the flame or quilt figuring with stunning effect. 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 2 John Petrucci signature DiMarzio Illuminator pickups, Piezo bridge system and on board 20db gain boost. Available in 6 or 7 string versions with Music Man JP tremolo, 3 way Toggle pickup selector and Music Man hardshell case.

“The JP15 commemorates 15 years of my relationship with Music Man Guitars. It’s pretty much exactly the same as the JP13 except this one has an all African Mahogany body and a roasted Maple neck & fingerboard. It’s an incredible looking guitar, sounds amazing and it’s everything I love about Music Man guitars. The JP15 has all the great features that make this guitar another step in the evolution of the JP line”John Petrucci
