The Majesty is the result of John’s unwavering demand for performance, playability and race inspired design. One of the most ergonomic and perfectly balanced instruments available, The Majesty features neckthrough body design, unparalleled upper and lower fret access, economical in-line control knob placement and new digital pickup switching capabilities which effectively eliminates delay between pickup selection. The Majesty is the exemplification of everything we know a John Petrucci signature model to be - innovative technology, versatile performance, and a sleek modern feel.
The 2016 John Petrucci Majesty 6
Built from the ground up for performance and tone. It features a Mahogany body, mahogany neck-through construction, laser-etched flame maple top, ebony fingerboard, 2 high-octane DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers, an active preamp, peizo-equipped tremolo bridge, and gorgeous gold hardware.
The Majesty's DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers scream and bite, providing a wide array of tones. Perfect for genre-bending songs or quick changes back and forth from dirty to clean, the Illuminators are one of the most versatile pickups on the planet.
Switch over to the John Petrucci Music Man® Piezo floating tremolo pickup, and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the thick, sparkling acoustic tone that pours out of this guitar. But Music Man and Petrucci didn't stop there. This guitar has a lot of surprises in store...
The volume and tone knobs each have their own spring-loaded tap feature. Tap the volume knob for a +20dB boost that acts like a transparent overdrive built right into the guitar. Tap the tone knob for a custom coil tap that engages in the middle pickup position. The pickups and knobs are wired into a custom-built preamp in the guitar that's powered by a 9v battery, and the whole configuration is shielded from interference by a graphite acrylic resin coated body cavity and an aluminum control cover. The two pickup selector switches are angled specifically so that both switches can be engaged with a single up- or down-stroke of the player's right hand.
The ultimate guitar for the ultimate player
Everything about the Majesty is about comfort, access, playability and tone. There's no guitar on the planet that has this combination of tech specs, look, feel, and tone. This guitar is amazing. You've gotta play it to believe it.
Here's what John Petrucci has to say about this signature model: "The Majesty guitar symbolizes the very reason why I am so proud to be a Music Man artist. I had the idea for this guitar a couple of years ago but it is because of their innovative spirit and dedication to the art of guitar building that it is now a reality. I am so grateful that I am able to collaborate with the best guitar company on the planet and so incredibly proud that together we have created what is to me, the perfect musical instrument for guitar players. I really hope you get a chance to play one and am confident that you will feel the same!" - John Petrucci
