Sterling By Music Man John Petrucci Signature Majesty MAJ200XSM Electric Guitar - Blood Orange Burst Dimarzio – MINT/Never Played

Solidbody Electric Guitar, Signature, with Spalted Maple Top, Nyatoh Body and Neck, Ebony Fingerboard, and 2 Active Dimarzio Humbucking Pickups - Blood Orange Burst

For your consideration is one of my several of these excellent guitars.  I used them for playing out, touring, etc., but this individual guitar has never been played. 

SO: it is totally Mint, New Old Stock, Unplayed, etc.

To document this amazing guitar and its pristine condition, I am showing as many pics as possible.  (Sorry for all the glare and reflections – the guitar is literally brand new and very shiny.  I tried everything I could think of but couldn’t make the glare go away entirely.)

Most dealers sell this guitar new for $1499 (check, e.g., Sweetwater).

Get it here for much less.

Here’s Sweetwater’s ad (selling for $1499). 

Known for his iconic playing with Dream Theater, John Petrucci is no stranger to lightning-fast riffs, complex compositional skills, and transfixing tones. It would only follow that his signature guitar would be up to the task, and Sterling by Music Man has again answered the call. The Majesty MAJ200 Signature guitar delivers everything you’d expect from a bona fide shred machine: 24 stainless steel frets across a 16-inch fingerboard radius, a modern tremolo, and DiMarzio signature pickups, offering up scorching leads and raucous rhythms with endless expressive potential. A push-push volume boost provides even greater creative range. A 3-piece nyatoh neck and ebony fingerboard are complemented by a spalted maple-topped nyatoh body, serving up a flexible tonal array with plenty of substance and articulation. Sweetwater’s guitar gurus agree that the Majesty MAJ200 is more than worthy of taking up the sonic mantle of John Petrucci’s virtuosic execution.

Masterful, balanced tone

If you know Dream Theater, then you understand just how diverse their music can be. Fortunately, this signature axe was engineered with versatility in mind. Thenyatoh body anchors the tonal range with a solid, well-rounded profile and harmonic-rich mids. On top, the spalted maple adds powerful projection with exceptionally bright voicing, balanced throughout with crisp highs and a distinctively warm low end. A 3-piece nyatoh neck adds a responsive girth that favors the midrange, yielding blooming overtones that result in distinctive character. The ebony fingerboard imparts your sound with thundering basses, hearty mids, and sonorous trebles, topped with a shimmering veneer and fantastic dynamic range. Altogether, these tonewoods deliver a balanced sonic profile with a hearty midrange, tight, warm lows, and sonorous, crystal-clear highs.

Dynamic, responsive sound

To bring these sonics to life, no expense was spared by the good folks at Sterling. John Petrucci’s signature DiMarzio pickups are loaded into both the bridge and neck positions. The bridge’s Crunch Lab is designed to maximize volume and clarity without thinning out in the higher registers, all while maintaining distinctive voicing even in high-gain amps, mounted to John’s own spec with the bar toward the neck. Complementing this is the LiquiFire, engineered for warm highs, tight lows, and uncompromising brightness. Together, these ensure plenty of dynamic range for searing solos, lavish leads, roaring rhythms, and anything else you can sonically conjure. A straightforward layout pairs a 3-way selector with dedicated control knobs for volume and tone, respectively. Hidden in plain sight is a push-push volume boost for substantial sustain and an increase in stylistic range when dialing in softer tones, letting you fine-tune your sound to your heart’s content!

Engineered for maximum personality

Beyond imparting wonderful sonic characteristics to your sound, the 3-piece nyatoh neck is both lightweight and rigid, blending comfortable in-hand feel with easy maneuvering. A set-in design secures the neck for an optimal balance of tone and structural security, minus the bulk. The sleek profile is complemented by a 16-inch fingerboard radius that begs to be tested. Locking tuners are a must when you’ve got the modern tremolo bookending the other side of a 25.5-inch scale, with 24 medium-jumbo stainless steel frets providing all the room you could need for maximum expression. When all the shredding is said and done, you’ll be thankful for the 1.65-inch nut that keeps your tones consistently buzz-free.
