Music Man John Petrucci BFR 7 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- A Ball Family Reserve instrument
- Own the tonal universe
- Music Man – the pro’s choice
A Ball Family Reserve instrument
A Ball Family Reserve (BFR) instrument that celebrates Music Man’s heritage in guitar craftsmanship with some of the finest figured tonewoods and finishes available, the John Petrucci BFR 7 is a supreme expression of the luthier’s art. It’s a superbly balanced instrument, and thanks to its sculpted alder body, it’s supremely comfortable and lightweight – perfect for marathon gigs and sessions. This axe gives you the ultimate in playability.
John Petrucci is a guitar legend, famous for his astonishing technical prowess and systematic demolition of musical boundaries. This man knows exactly what he needs in a solidbody electric guitar, and since his first Music Man signature model, he has been working with the company to refine the concept. John thinks of his talented hands as being “average-sized,” and this is reflected in the slim neck taper – a profile also favored by a broad swath of guitarists. Add to that a premium rosewood fingerboard and 24 high-profile, wide stainless-steel frets, and you’ve got a high-speed, low-drag shredding machine.
Own the tonal universe
The Music Man John Petrucci BFR 7 makes you a master of the tonal universe. Its comfortable, contoured alder body contains a mahogany Tone Block and is topped with maple – a unique tone cocktail that gives you wonderful warmth and resonance you don’t expect in a solidbody, along with prodigious sustain. Two DiMarzio humbuckers – a Liquifire (neck) and Crunch Lab (bridge) – serve up a universe of tone that takes you from chimey cleans through a wide range of delectable crunch, all the way to fearsome, face-melting shred. But there’s more: a custom piezo floating vibrato bridge lets you engage in vigorous whammy action with absolute tuning stability, while giving you access to a range of gorgeous, nuanced acoustic sounds. Tonally speaking, there’s very little this exquisite axe can’t do for you.
