Music Man John Petrucci BFR 7

The John Petrucci Ball Family Reserve 7 Electric Guitar was designed in conjunction with the world-renowned Dream Theater guitarist. Signature model features fine tonewoods including maple and rosewood. A mahogany tone block runs from under the bridge to the neck pocket. Selected maple neck. A high gloss polyester finish looks great and offers superb protection. Equipped with 2 custom DiMarzio humbuckers specially designed for Petrucci (DiMarzio LiquiFire neck and DiMarzio Crunch Lab bridge) along with redesigned controls providing additional versatility and tonal options, the signature John Petrucci 7 sets the standard for the next generation of electric guitar innovation.

The Ball family is the last of a dying breed, a family business making guitars and basses exclusively in the United States. Ball Family Reserve is a celebration of their heritage in instrument craftsmanship which features some of the finest figured tone woods and finishes available. These rare heritage pieces are offered in limited runs and make available to the public instruments that were previously reserved for the Ball family and their loyal artists.
