    Maybe some PAF type Dimarzios or SDs, if they fit. I have not swapped pickups on mine because I use it for the metal/Petrucci sound. I donít like buying guitars knowing I will likely switch the...

    The JP6 is a fantastic guitar. That said, it is definitely specialized. If you feel like swapping pickups, it can do pretty much anything, but I think the silhouette sounds like a better fit for your...

    I like that snowy night color! If it is on a stingray or cutlass, I may have to make a purchase this year.

    I was a big believer in that being the reason I would dislike the Sabre, but honestly I didnít notice that at all, and Iím someone who prefers the 1 5/8Ē nut width.

    It’s much closer to a JP in terms of thick/thinness than a Cutlass. The shape is closer to the Cutlass on the upper frets, no hint of a V on the Sabre. I find the shape comfortable, even compared to...

    Iíve determined I hardly ever use the piezo, and would rather have the passive electronics of a JP6 (or 7) and the most comfortable arm scoop ever made on a guitar, but I find the majesty neck shape...

    The Sabre and cutlass are very similar, shape wise. The neck on the Sabre is a little thinner, and doesn’t morph shapes as you go up the neck. The pickups are hotter, but not really similar to the...

    Did you listen to the most recent "Striking a Chord" podcast with Myung? The host at the beginning says an artist series bass for Myung is coming out in the next few days.

    Interesting. I thought it was something Charlie Dominici drew up.
    Also, all letters of his last name are present in the symbol.

    That JPX was a guitar center limited edition IIRC. Also, GC had a run of signed Bahama Blue (not burst) JP6 BFRs in the early 2010s.

    Well, the Sabre is exactly what I DIDNT need to be announced. Guess I’ve got to sell something to make room for one of those in blue moonstone. As long as they have SS frets?

    Where is the string breaking? At the tuner? At the nut? At the saddle/bridge? Under the saddle? If it consistently breaks in a certain place, it may help narrow down where the problem is.

    Hmmm
    Maple top, direct mount humbuckers (although they look a little different), contoured back.

    Maybe a Luke model (BFR variation?)
    Or maybe a JPXX?!

    Thanks!
    I guess I need to look for the full silo then.

    Teal pearl would be cool. I’ve seen carbon blue, and wouldn’t be against it, but not quite what I’m looking for.

    I think my Cutlass HSS may be my favorite guitar. The humbucker has more midrange in it than the stingray humbuckers, and I find it to have a good amount of gain. I’d say it’s ok for Van Halen. Not...

    I had the same thought about stepping on the toes of the stingray. The pickups sound different though. The cutlass H has a lot more midrange to my ear, and maybe has a tad more output.

    I’d love an HH cutlass. I have an SSS and HSS, but HH is my preferred setup. I wonder if EBMM has one in the works? Or maybe the Stingray is supposed to fill that niche?
