    Ernie ball guitars that have piezo pickups?

    I was wondering which EB guitars have piezo pickups built-in? I am assuming all of Ernie ball's John Petrucci's guitars come with the Piezo pickup but was wondering if any other EB guitars might have them as well?

    I have an Axis SS and Game Changer with piezo. I think they have trimmed the number of piezo models in the past couple of years, so I'm not sure which guitars are currently being made with piezo.

    I think currently, other than the Petrucci models, the Hunter Hayes signature cutlass is the only one.

    Not anymore. They were discontinued in '14 or '15, I believe. I tried to get one in '16 and couldn't. Majesty and JP models are the only current ones I'm aware of.
    My stuff:
    2007 Axis Pacific Blue Burst (9/25/07)
    2016 Axis SS Starry Night PDN (11/23/16)
    2016 Axis SS Semi-Hollow Trans Teal one-off (6/8/16)
    2018 Axis BFR Steel Blue No. 45 (9/18/18)
    2010 JP6 Mystic Dream (6/22/10)
    1989 Fender HM Strat HSS Blackstone
    2016 Gibson Les Paul Studio Deluxe Caribbean Night
    1995 Washburn N2 Padauk Stain
    2017 Taylor 224ce-K DLX Koa

    Hi there, We currently offer piezo pickups on all the Petrucci model guitar and the Hunter Hayes Cutlass. You can view the JP models here: John Petrucci Collection | Ernie Ball Music Man and the Hunter Hayes Cutlass here: Hunter Hayes | Guitars | Ernie Ball Music Man

    Since the OP didn't specifically ask about "current production", you can find piezo saddles on older Silhouette Specials and I have seen at least one or two Albert Lees with piezo as well.

    RSG is correct.

    The piezo option used to be offered on the Albert Lee, Axis SuperSport, JP6/7, Luke 2, Silhouette, Silhouette Special, 20th Anniversary Silhouette, GameChanger/Reflex, and a few BFR versions of those instruments as well.

    As Daniel mentioned, currently the piezo is only offered (as a standard feature) on all of the JP & Hunter Hayes instruments.

    The Reflex Gamechanger piezo is awesome. I had no piezo guitars until that one and now I would have a difficult time buying a new one without it!

    Piezo used to be the new-hotness but now it's tough to find, which is weird because with the current technology is more useful than ever. I don't even bring an acoustic to the gig anymore.

    at first I was troubled with the lack of a switch for the AL and Silo piezo systems. Then I fell in love with it and wouldn't want it any other way. Knob placement on the Al Silo and Morse models are perfect.
    Watching Steve Morse Manipulate the volume and tone knobs is an amazing thing to see .

    Newbie question: Do the EB guitars with piezo pickups work using a Y-cable or do they have 2 seperate jacks (1 for the pickups and 1 for the piezo)?

    It depends on the model. Some have two jacks, some need a TRS cable to a splitter.
