    Wait....a Floyd 1000? Isn't that what comes on the LTD line of guitars?? And this JP is still $2500 with no piezo? Wow, I mean it looks killer, but about $500+ more than it should be. Should have a gotoh or something for that price.

    Yup, a bit overpriced all things considered. Needs a matching headstock IMO, along with locking tuners. Yes, the locking nut is there, but locking tuners is still convenient as hell regardless. Why do you think Jake Bowen put them on his sig Ibanez? They probably went with the Floyd 1000 instead of the Gotoh because of the low profile. I don't think Gotoh currently makes a low profile Floyd.

    I like it but wish they kept the EBMM bridge. Black with ebony is how I like 'em

    They're going after the Floyd or GTFO crowd I think. Will pass on this and get the JPXI.

    Wow, that looks badass!
    I like the idea of the Floyd Pro, many complained about the vintage style JP bridge (which is one of the best on the market) so i guess they wanted to get more people interested in the JP line(?)

    Digging the new colour and the "Smokey Ebony" Board.
    I just hope they kept the Schaller Locking tuners.

    It appears to have a piezo, but not the upper toggle switch:

    I like the Floyd Rose, one of my biggest issues with the JP guitars whenever I got the chance to play one was the trem. Non-locking floating trems are a royal pain. And i'm not even a big fan of floating trems in general.

    The JP floating bridge is one of my favourites of all time. I wonder why they changed it

    I personally hate Floyds. But lots of people love them so maybe it was to market towards these folks.

    There's like 20 different lines of JP models you can get with Floyds. Get those instead. :lol:

    I'm guessing Trucci was looking to go back to the feel of his old Ibanez with this one. Even has Floyd's copy of a Lo Pro Edge.

    CNo clue why they went with the 1000-series, though. They make a German-made Pro.

    Charvel mojo in a JP body. I'll pass.... perhaps John is bored with EBMM. A switch back to Ibanez on the cards in the near future? Maybe!

    Because Petrucci asked? :lol:

    Like I said, there's like 50000 other JP sigs you can chose from. There's nothing special about this version besides the Floyd. Whats wrong with more options for us that like Floyds?

    I was just making the point of how amazing the EBMM trem is.

    Honestly, i think its really cool of EBMM and JP himself to drastically change his guitar with every iteration, it gives us all a lot of choice which is never a bad thing.
