With a slightly thinner upper horn and a more symmetric bridge end profile, John Petrucci's Music Man JPX is a culmination of a 10 year relationship with Music Man instruments. An alder body with a maple top, ebony fingerboard and select mahogany neck provides an incredible structure for this high-quality electric. The JPX has a chambered body paired with an in-tremolo piezo bridge gives the JPX solid acoustic tones that adds versatility to this guitar that's already loaded with DiMarzio LiquiFire and Crunch Lab humbuckers.

The 5-way switch is specially wired to provide access to the individual pickup coils as well as the full humbuckers so they can be utilized both traditionally or as single coils for more tonal options. A 3-way toggle enables switching between the humbuckers and the piezo pickup or the option to use both simultaneously. The Piezo under-bridge pickup allows you to get acoustic tones during a live performance without having to switch guitars.
The dual output jacks allow you the option of running Piezo/Mono through output 1 or Magnetic/Stereo via output 2.
