SINCE 2012

The JP12 features a combination of top appointments from previous John Petrucci signature instruments including DiMarzio CrunchLab and Liquifire pickups, piezo equipped tremolo and stereo output. Most notably, the mahogany JP12 neck has been streamlined to a symmetric, extra slim profile featuring an ultra flat 20" radius ebony fretboard. This, combined with the non-chambered body, mahogany Tone Block and maple top makes the JP12 a powerful and progressive instrument.

CONCEPT

What can the guitar be? Every new Ernie Ball Music Man concept represents our quest to answer to this question, guided by our design team's pursuit of perfection and molded by the demands for performance from our artists. Starting from the ground up is never easy, but we believe innovation means never being satisfied with the status quo.

Design

Every Ernie Ball Music Man guitar has been meticulously designed and crafted with the utmost attention to every detail. With each new model, our world-class team of designers and engineers delivers the best playing experience possible.

Millwork

Our wood mill employs the perfect balance of machine-driven precision and the personal touch of an experienced handcraftsmen. High-quality wood is sculpted into beautiful instruments.

Big Bird

Big Bird is a recently-added member of the Ernie Ball Music Man robot family, feeding the wood raw materials into the computer-controlled cutting and drilling machine with automated precision.

Fretting

All frets are hand-applied to exact specifications, ensuring each guitar or bass has the playability you'd expect from Ernie Ball Music Man.

Sanding

Ernie Ball Music Man necks and bodies are hand-sanded multiple times, creating flawless finishes and maximum playability.

Paint

Three layers of high-gloss polyurethane are applied to each color-coated instrument body, producing a luxurious state-of-the-art finish.

Buffing/Ursula

We use state-of-the-art technology like Ursula, our beloved buffing robot. Automation ensures a high-quality and cost-effective product, every time.

Electronics

Each instrument is hand-soldered using the latest technology in our San Luis Obispo factory.

Setup

When you purchase an Ernie Ball Music Man guitar or bass, it has already been personally tested and tuned by one of our experienced setup technicians, ensuring you can play right out of the box.
