Sterling by Music Man JP170D overview

  • 1Description

The JP170D John Petrucci Series 7-string solid-body electric guitar from Sterling by Music Man combines the designs of the JP70 7-string with the JP100D, and uses "Ball Family Reserve" based wood for the body and top. The instrument features a basswood body with a quilted maple veneer top in ruby red burst finish, and a bolt-on hard maple neck with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard and pearloid JP Shield inlay. The easy access truss rod adjuster makes neck adjustments fast and simple, allowing you to fine tune your setup and keep the neck straight when environmental conditions change or you change string gauges.

The guitar is equipped with DiMarzio LiquiFire and Crunch Lab humbucking pickups in the neck and bridge positions. A 3-way selector switch allows you to choose between pickup configurations, which can be further adjusted using the master volume and tone controls. Additionally, the JP170D is fitted with Petrucci dome knobs, a modern full float tremolo bridge, and a set of locking tuners on the oversized 5 + 2 headstock.
