Well dealers get prices ahead of time, and it's two weeks til a proper reveal with all the information. So I wouldn't be surprised if some people already have their info up. Canada's prices have always been insane.

My guess is that the new red majesty will be around $4K (Canadian). The new JP15 colour will likely be $4K as well. This is based off the current Majesty Artisans and the current JP15.

Well 4000 is better than 5000 I would actually say that makes more sense as the normal models run around $3700 or so, so an extra $300 would merit a new face lift.

Canada's prices are insane. The exchange rate being 75% of the US dollar makes it impossible to shop overseas too.

Definitely. Then you add extra for shipping and then border-import fees and it's even worse.

Where in Ontario are you? Most mid-size to large cities will have a Long & McQuade location and they are a Music Man dealer and tend to have the best prices for gear in Canada (or at least pretty close).

Belleville, we have a L&M and they don't have any Music Man let alone a JP model. They have 90% Fender/Squire and Gibson/Epiphone and about 3 ibanez.

When I asked about music man they said they would have to order them in and by order they meant me buy the guitar without ever touching it to see if I liked it first.

Pretty lame.

Yeah, I used to live in Kingston so I know that struggle, lol.

If you are able you could phone up a bunch of music stores in the GTA and make a road trip up to stores that have some MM's in stock. I tend to notice that stores in the GTA will often have JP6's in stock but tend not to have any other JP model, and if they do, they are quickly sold

I asked this on a different thread but might get a faster answer here, has anyone played both the Jp15 7 string and the Sterling jp157? I'm. Curious to see what the difference is besides the piezo obviously. Has anyone on here played both?

i find that sterlings are kinda hit or miss, at least for me. i played a jp100d, the koa edition, and it honestly blew me away. my friend ended up selling it, but i played the same model at a guitar center a few months later and it was a dud for me.
every music man ive ever played however felt consistent. so in addition to no piezo, they can be just really good or just really not so good. which doesnt help if you have to order one online.

Ahhh I see I suppose that makes sense. Once again I'd be buying online which makes it tough.

also remember the Sterling one doesnt come with dimarzios.

I think they are great for the looks, and pretty good guitars, How picky are you for it is up to you. with the lack of SS frets, and the EBMM bridge either it wont fell the same as the Majesty, but I would say "who cares" it looks cool heheh.

for the kind of playing I do, I would be happy with either, theres no store up there who has Sterlings?

All the stirling goes I've seen have been the super cheap Silo 30s and axis guitars nothing special like a 7 string

Man I was going to try to lay off the new guitars in 2017, but holy crap this Majesty Monarch in purple is calling my name something fierce!




Black hardware and that purple finish just look amazing together! The Majesty I had played SO nicely, I'm seriously tempted to grab one of these...

Guitars: PRS, Parker, Jackson, Thorn, Carvin, .strandberg*
Rigs: Suhr PT100, Engl Invader II 100 LE, Mojo 4x12 cab, Port City OS 1x12 cab

You have any idea if the back of the neck is matte on these?

Back of guitar and neck are still satin finished, yes.

The back being matte and the top being gloss is the perfect combo too. The matte neck on the Majesty was lovely, but I prefer the top to be gloss so that was another thing that has me favoring these over the original.

The black hardware fits the guitars color scheme much better in my opinion.

Finally opaque finishes! Death to the shovel! Or is that the Richardson? He was always into the crazy sparkles.
