What we say:
Ball Family reserve guitars are generally built only for artists and special friends of the company. The are non-catalogue, limited runs made usually with exotic woods or special finishes. These hand-made instruments are the best of the best.
John Petrucci has a large presence in the music Man stable: his JP and Majesty series guitars dominate a large percentage of the models available and rightly so: Dream Theater's chief member and driving force's astonishing playing put him at the top of many rock fans' list of all-time great guitarists! His Majesty is the newer of the two general schools of Petrucci guitar design and this has been subject to some triumphant BFR models recently, including this one!
The Majesty is a high-precision, high performance guitar designed to meet the demanding needs of Petrucci's day to day touring schedule with Dream Theater. His own custom Sonic Ecstacy humbuckers are used on this guitar along with a piezo system discreetly built into the custom-design bridge to give him instant quasi-acoustic tones alongside his molten, liquid metal lead and rhythm tones.
This BFR Majesty uses African Mahogany for the body and through-construction neck and also has a Claro Walnut shield-shaped centre piece. This rare wood is visually striking and sounds somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. The neck has a 17" radius and 24 stainless steel frets for an uncompromising playing surface with access right the way up to the highest fret.
In addition to the piezo circuitry, the BFR Majesty also has custom switching and an active gain boost accessed via a push/push control on the volume knob.
This beautiful instrument is crammed full of player-friendly features that maximises the potential of any playing situation. This stunning BFR Walnut version is available in extremely limited numbers!
