    JP70/157 or Majesty w/ dot inlays?

    I hope this specific question hasn't been asked already but I realize there's going to be some overlap with discussions in other threads.

    I'm looking to add a 7-string Petrucci model--any 7-string Petrucci--to the collection. Absolutely hate the shield inlays, though. Way too overstated and asymmetric-looking, IMHO; simply can't be convinced otherwise!

    I've seen JP7s in the wild with dot inlays. What I'm wondering is whether dot inlays were ever an option for any Sterling Petrucci models. I'm pretty sure that there are absolutely no dot Majesty models, based on what I've read and seen. And I'm assuming that "no inlays" was never an option, except maybe in some rare BFR that I've never seen.

    Don't jump in there all at once, guys!
    Official answer--nope. Shields only except for JP6, JP7, special order.

    If I remember correctly, the earliest SBMM JP models had regular dots inlays. They changed them after a bit. Maybe you can find an old one.

    Overpriced, but here's an example: Music Man Sterling JP50 | Beyers Music | Reverb

    Ah, you're right... but wasn't SBMM only doing the 6-string JP variants back then? As far as I've seen used, the JP70s, 157s and JP7s only have shields. I was told that the Majesty 7 BFR can be had without any fretboard inlays, which is also cool, but way out of my price range.

    (Plus, I've already got a gorgeous tangerine JP6 with dots, so the 6-string need is met for me.)
