Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this Ball Family Reserve Music Man Majesty in a Steakhouse finish that's good enough to eat. The spalted maple top shield is a beautiful touch that helps to separate this apart from other Majesty guitars out there. Limited to only 102 worldwide, you know you'll have a unique piece of Music Man history with one of these in your collection and you'll pretty much never have to worry about running into someone else that has the same guitar as you.

John Petrucci and Music Man have been working together for decades at this point. Together they've come up with some of the best electric guitar designs on the market. But nothing in their catalog is quite like their most recent collaboration. The Majesty is one of the best new designs in years - not just for Music Man, but for the entire guitar industry. It borrows many build concepts from previous JP models, but when it comes down to it, this is a totally unique and radically different guitar. You'll notice right off the bat that the body style is new. That seemingly large upper horn isn't just for looks: The top cutaway is almost just as deep as the bottom cutaway, so you can get your thumb over the neck when you're playing in the highest registers.

This axe is perfect for the die-hard Petrucci fan or simply anyone who's looking for the best new design geared towards aggressive shred styles of playing. This isn't one of those signature guitars that is designed to do such a specific thing for a specific person that it's not really useful for the average day player. This is a player's instrument through and through. It's a very high-end one, at that. The magnetic and piezo pickups work in tandem with the tonewoods and the overall construction design to create something that looks cool, sounds amazing, and is a breeze to play for hours and hours on end. Good work, Music Man! Even subtle details like the way the pickup selector and piezo selector feel and how quickly they respond was something that Petrucci worked tirelessly with Music Man to get just right. Then there are subtle additions like the push/push knobs on the volume for a gain boost and on the tone knob to give you some alternative pickup options. It's a guitar that has a lot to offer, and yet, it's not at all complicated to operate.
