    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.

    That used to happen with my JP6 from '08 from time to time and I could see that it was a 2-piece body. It hasn't happened in a long time though and is gone now. Not sure of the exact cause but it...

    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...

    Interesting, I had no idea a change was made. I'm curious to know more if anyone has information.

    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?
  11. 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...
  13. Question: If I remember correctly, the earliest SBMM JP...

    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...

    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.

    Thanks. I guess I could always get some different ones and see what works, they are cheap enough. It would be cool if they had Cutlass pick guards and parts in the online shop like they do for the...

    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...

    I haven't used anything heavier than 10-46 mostly. Good to know others have had issues with burrs developing, so my suspicions may have been correct. I'm going to be taking it to a tech for a good...

    Any word on discontinuing the older JP bolt-on models? I know they discontinued a bunch last year, and only noticed the JP15 at NAMM this year.

    A couple years back Sam Ash had a one-off Cutlass in Pearl Redburst with a roasted neck and ebony board. That combo on the neck really took it to another level. I wish I had the money for it then,...
