The Sterling By Music Man MAJ100 Majesty is the result of John Petrucci’s unwavering demand for performance, playability and race inspired design. Every graceful nuance built into the Majesty is a result of the collaboration between Masters: The Ernie Ball Music Man design team and John Petrucci.
Arguably, one of the most sleek, perfectly balanced instruments every created, the MAJ100 Majesty features a 25.5 inch scale, a speedy, 16 inch radius Rosewood fretboard and African Mahogany set-neck and body. A masterfully crafted design, the unfettered neck joint offers the player unparalleled, full 24 fret access. Shield style inlays adorn the neck, as well as John’s signature JPShield logo, which is inlaid at the first fret.
Ergonomic in-line recessed controls include a 3 position pickup selector, Volume, and Tone VR controls. Additionally, MAJ100 features an Active push-push 12dB circuit boost on the Volume control, allowing the player ultimate soloing power at their fingertips. This Active Circuit is powered by a 9V battery that loads into an easily accessed compartment on the rear of the instrument, and requires no tools, making battery changes user friendly and quick.
Accurate intonation, smooth operation and excellent tuning stability come courtesy of the combination of Locking Tuning Machines and the Sterling By Music Man designed Modern Tremolo. This premium, full floating tremolo system is featured on most John Petrucci Signature Series instruments, and allows for full dives, 2 step pulls, and is exceptionally responsive to flutter effects, all while maintaining accurate tuning.
The Locking Tuning machines are arranged in a 4+2 manner on the angled headstock, giving positive, in line string pull over the nut. String changes are easy with a slight turn of the locking wheel mechanism located on the rear of each tuning machine. Johns’ signature is also proudly featured on the face of the headstock.
