This Music Man Majesty Monarch in Imperial Blue is a guitar with many personalities. One minute it can be mean and nasty, and the next, sweet and charming. It's really designed for rock and high speed playing so if you want to play country, blues or rock you might want to stay away.
The lightweight (6 lb 8 oz) African mahogany body with maple top is finished in a gorgeous Imperial Blue finish. The body shape is small and has wonderful contours making this a very comfortable guitar to hold.
The DiMarzio Sonic Ecstasy pickups are bold and flavorful. They have a good mid-range honk with well balanced highs and lows. Slightly compressed with excellent sustain. The tone control is a push/push for a custom single coil tone. The volume is a push/push control for an extra 20 dB boost. The Piezo system does a great job of replicating an acoustic sound. It can also be blended with the humbuckers. So many tones, so little time!
The thin neck is designed for one thing, Speed! 17" radius, 24 Medium Jumbo Stainless Steel frets and a matte finish on the back of the neck. Your hand will effortlessly fly up and down the neck. Be sure to have a fire extinguisher handy!
The Custom John Petrucci Music Man® Piezo floating tremolo is excellent. One of the best trems I have ever used. Smooth action and stays in tune no matter how many dive bombs you do.
Cool looks, tons of tones and easy playability make this a must have for any rock/metal player.
