Product information - Music Man BFR JP15 7-String Eminence Purple #F772201

7-string electric guitar with flamed maple top, DiMarzio Illuminator pickups and piezo system, including case and certificate

The strictly limited Music Man BFR JP15 7-String Eminence Purple electric guitar is a special treat for all fans of the Dream Theater string wizard. Based on the classic JP Signature model, the 7-string electric guitar offers a clean but elegant look defined by the hand-stained Eminence Purple finish and ebony fingerboard without inlays. DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers and the obligatory piezo pickup system also promise a particularly rich sound spectrum, whose specialty is not limited to the clean and distorted sounds of progressive metal. In addition to a beautiful roasted maple neck, high-quality hardware in the form of a Music Man Custom tremolo and precise Schaller locking tuners complete the BFR JP15 7-String Eminence Purple electric guitar from Music Man.

Premium woods, clean look

The BFR JP15 7-String electric guitar is constructed using only select tonewoods that promise a premium sound experience. While the African mahogany body carries a hand-stained curly maple top with intense flame, the neck is made of sturdy, roasted curly maple. A white-bound ebony fingerboard with no inlays also accentuates the guitar's clean, yet elegant look. With its flat neck profile and stainless steel fretting, the Music Man JP also makes any riff or solo, no matter how complex, come off the hook with ease.

Flexible sound spectrum

When used with a guitar amp, the BFR JP15 7-String Eminence Purple presents itself as an all-rounder for almost any metal sound. DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers on the neck and bridge provide a differentiated spectrum of first-class clean and distortion sounds, which translates fast riffing just as skilfully as fluid solo playing. Even at maximum gain, the low B-string is precisely integrated into the sound. To elicit additional gain reserves from the amp or to give solos the necessary punch, the electric guitar is also equipped with a switchable boost. Last but not least, the piezo pickup system of the Music Man BFR JP15 delivers authentic acoustic guitar sounds.

High-quality hardware equipment

The BFR JP15 7-String Eminence Purple electric guitar from Music Man is rounded out by a high-quality hardware setup. The floating Music Man Custom Tremolo allows for smooth vibrato action with pitch shifts up and down while keeping the tuning secure. Behind the compensated plastic nut, which makes the intonation of empty strings noticeably more precise, Schaller M6-IND clamp machine heads ensure precise and stable tuning of the 7-string electric guitar.
