Product information - MUSIC MAN BFR JP15 7-String Suplex #F89466

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

The strictly limited Music Man BFR JP15 7-String Suplex electric guitar is a special treat for all fans of the Dream Theater string wizard.

In addition to a beautiful roasted maple neck, the BFR JP15 7-String Suplex electric guitar from Music Man is completed by high-quality Hardware in the form of a Music Man Custom Tremolo and precise Schaller locking tuners.

First-class woods, clean look

For the construction of the BFR JP15 7-String Suplex electric guitar, only selected tone woods are used, which promise a first-class sound experience. While the ash body carries a spalted maple top with an intense pattern, the neck is made of sturdy roasted maple. A roasted-maple fingerboard with black block inlays also enhances 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 with ease.

Music Man BFR JP15 7-String Suplex #F89466 Body
With DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers, a piezo system and the active Custom Preamp, the Music Man John Petrucci JP15 delivers versatile metal tones.

Flexible sound spectrum

When used with a guitar amp, the BFR JP15 7-String Suplex presents itself as an all-rounder for almost any metal sound. DiMarzio Illuminator humbuckers on 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.

Music Man BFR JP15 7-String Suplex #F89466 Headstock
On the headstock of the roasted maple neck, Schaller clamp machine heads ensure precise and stable tuning.

High-quality hardware equipment

High-quality hardware features complete the BFR JP15 7-String Suplex electric guitar from Music Man. 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 saddle, which makes the intonation of empty strings noticeably more precise, Schaller M6-IND clamp machine heads also ensure precise and stable tuning of the 7-string electric guitar.
