    Musik Man JP6 (Refinish) Identification and Information

    Hey Guys!

    I recently bought a nice Music Man JP6 Model. It has been refinished! A previous owner didn't like the finish and painted it in some sort of White Pearl (Looks professional!!). I guess the original painting was blue Pearl...
    The guy also made some changes on that guitar - he installed Seymour Duncan active PU's, other knobs and strapbuttons.

    Since I have no additonal information on the guitar I want to ask you how I can make sure, that this guitar is not an fake or a "modded Sterling" - are there some properties only MM Guitars have? - Serial Nr. is G 21802

    thank you for you help!
    Daniel

    So, yes, probably a refinish, like you said. If you have another questions, put a new post in the same thread and customer service will reply in a day or two.

    Thank you so much - I posted the Serial number and I wait for further information.
    I think the serial number and especially the backplate is hard to fake...also the tremolo is original and stays in tune perfectly!

    The guitar went through many hands as far as I know, it was sold on eBay in Germany several times.
    I'm glad to have the guitar here and I rely on my experience...it Plays wonderful!
    I think a "fake" would not play that good and there is some evidence that this guitar is original...

    But it has definately been refinished - that's such a shame.....The seymour duncan pickups will soon be replaced by the original ones or the Illuminators...

    I seriously doubt the Sterling would have had that nice figured maple neck that you have.

    Shame. That Stratus Blue was an interesting finish, kind of a louder and flashier Starry Night almost. Still looks like a pretty sweet guitar once you get it back in fighting form.
