Ernie Ball Music Man introduces the latest evolution in the John Petrucci line of signature guitars, the JPXI, which will feature a combination of appointments from JPX and BFR Petrucci signature instruments.

Most notably, the JPXI neck has been streamlined to a symmetric, extra slim profile featuring a flatter 20" radius, medium jumbo stainless steel frets with a finished mahogany neck and an ebony fingerboard, according to the manufacturer. It also has a non-chambered body, mahogany Tone Block and maple top.

The controls are similar to that of the JP BFR line, with 2 three way toggles wired for the Custom Dimarzio LiquiFire and Crunch Lab humbuckers, as well as the Piezo bridge pickup.

The JPXI guitars will be available in 6 and 7 string versions, adorned with chrome hardware, Mother of Pearl inlays and a new Onyx finish.
