    I believe they started with the Cutlass and StingRay guitars released in 2015 or so. Technically they put their own pickups in the Sub1 guitars of the early 2000s. Not sure of the reasoning. The...

    Maybe they will offer something like the Fender Mod Shop, where you can customize certain woods, finishes, etc. from a list of models and get the instrument directly from the factory. Not a full...

    Hard to tell from the video, but is there any chance the bridge isn't properly aligned with one or both of the trem posts? If all the strings were removed, the bridge would probably be loose enough...

    Anyone notice that the standard maple necks were changed to roasted after the initial announcement? That makes these much more attractive.

    I have the same problem, as I often like to bend certain strings while letting others ring out. I haven't found a solution other than to set the trem to sit against the body. Unfortunately, this will...

    The differences would be the finish options that are/were available. Another thing to look for would be the mirror inlays on the Monarchy vs. the pearloid-looking ones on the new models, as well as...

    To replace a neck, you would have to send them the existing neck. You would not be able to upgrade to a roasted neck, I think they only do direct replacements.

    The stainless steel came only on the JPXI that year I believe. It wasn't until early 2012 (or 2013?) that they switched to stainless on all JP models. Someone should definitely confirm this though.

    In the current lineup, I believe the only model that has it is the "John Petrucci Figured Top," which is the new name for the JP BFR. And the JPXI if it's still being offered. But I haven't seen it...

    I noticed something similar on my JP6 when i first got it. It went away with time though.

    For the JP6, you can get one in a "Stealth Black" finish, which is a matte black with satin finished neck. I believe these are still available.

    Interesting that there is no battery compartment, if it was meant to have EMGs. Maybe it is a prototype.

    I'm pretty sure the double-locking tremolo system has been changed and/or revised throughout the years. Axis models from the last few years have a locking nut without the screws. Older ones have the...

    Ah. So it's not quite the same as the standard oil/wax maple necks?
  16. Difference Between Necks on BFR and Standard Instruments?

    Was curious about the finish used on the maple necks of BFR instruments. I've noticed in photos that, aside from the fact that they are highly-figured, all the BFR necks appear to have a shine that I...

    Which BFR? The blue sparkle one? The cosmetics and possibly wood choice are the only thing that's different as far as I know. Personally I prefer the oil/wax finish maple neck, which you do not get...

    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.

    The whole stability issue has been debated, but if figured necks were less stable I doubt they would be used so much on so many premium instruments. I could be wrong though. Ultimately I think the...

    Yeah, if I need to do it thru customer service I will. I need a new nut for my old Sub1 anyway. May as well make it a bulk order.

    Nice. Well that pretty much settles it. The finish on mine will be charcoal sparkle, so that gives me an idea of what it will look like with a black scratchplate.

    Question: Cutlass Pickup Covers & Knobs

    Does anyone know if the plastic covers that come on the Cutlass pickups are the same spec as anything else you can buy on the market, or are the dimensions proprietary to Music Man? I just bought a...
