    Just wanted to say I love natural ebony, the total black stuff is nice but some colour in there is awesome. If it comes like that let it, I really hope it stays that way but I know brands will look for the blackest or dye it.

    Heck lots of people love spalted maple, and thats literally wood that had been affected by fungi.

    Also I love the new JP. I like floyds I like JP's and I love roasted maple. Seems like a win to me.

    I was surprised. We have the original custom set in the early JP6/JP7's, CL/LF, Illuminators and now the Sonic Ecstasy pickups. Curious to hear this new set and maybe even pickup (....ty pun!) a JP16-7.

    That was Brad Delson's I think.

    By the way, I got this response from Dimarzio regarding the Sonic Ecstasy:
    Edit: updated specs from EBMM forum
    Bridge voicing seems to be a bit different, more towards a gravity storm I'd guess

    Cool!
    Definitely interesting to note that unlike the move from the CL to the Illuminator, the Sonic Ecstasy seems to be a more dramatic change.

    The Illuminator was a huge change from the CL IMO, a major improvement everywhere the CL seemed to fall apart under.

    Sounds like it's his take on a Super Distortion, with more focus on the midrange and low end.

    Yup, the name is on par John's lyrics :lol: sounds good though and I'll probably grab a set sometime.

    Looks like the JP16 is out today via the Ernie Ball FB page - looking forward to reviews. I'd have been totally interested if it had the regular bridge but I'm sure people will love the Floyd.

    Dig the roast maple neck and headstock. Its already been said, but why did they not go with a Floyd original for a $2.5k guitar?

    Like the neck as well.
    Zero interest in a floyd. If they would of made this a hardtail, I probably would order.(have a JP12 on the way,used-mint).

    The floyd was a deal breaker for me as well, there's just something about them that stops me ever loving a guitar with one.

    For me personally it's more like I just wish the less visually attractive JP13 was the one with the Floyd. Because the MM trem is nicer.

    Glad they finally put a Floyd on one. I know I am in the minority but I absolutely have no use for the stock trem.
