Dang this thing is HOT! Too bad it wasn't a 7/14!
I dunno, they 8+4 headstock looks mega stupid, can you imagine how bad a 9 +5 whould look? If they'd put a 6+6 headstock (or 7+7 for a 14 string) it'd look better. I like the colour.
Exactly my thoughts.
Looks a bit lop-sided to me. The headstock is half the length of the neck!
Its a stunning finish though, as with all EBMM.
Yeah, great looking guitar other than the tuners on the 12 string headstock. Maybe bring 2-3 from the top of the headstock and move it to the bottom? It would help it to look a little less assymetrical IMHO. JPM guitars are definitely lookers, especially with sweet finishes like that! I wish the necks were a little thicker though.
That top headstock makes's fender's 6x6 "droopstock" look sexy.
Man, I love John's playing but his guitars have looked like total ass since he parted with Ibby!
Ernie ball would probably end up doing a 10+4 to be consistant with the scheme they have for their headstocks.
there was a 7/14 made but head formerly from korn owns it and its not a EBMM
Anyway, Head's 7/14 is cool, but he's not in a big band anymore, so I don't think that his 7/14 would ever see production. BUT, if Petrucci wanted, EB would probably do it.
That doubleneck is pretty fugly.
They should have done a 7+5 headstock on that 12-string neck. And on a 14-string, it would look more proportional as 8+6.
I rest my case.
I like it... what I don't like about it is the finish way to go against the flow eh
Those are so freaking heavy...just crazy.
Anyway I love the look, it's different, and very unique. EBMM was never about whta everybody else does, they do what they want. But what does it matter, unfortunatley it will never see the light of day as far as production goes.
Looks like a dick.
It may look weird, but that headstock design might serve a purpose. I own a 12-string, and the G octave string is prone to frequent breakage. I bet put the tuning peg so far out puts a little more give into the string, prolonging life.
Not string tension, mind you, since that doesn't change. I've just noticed that most breakage occurs when tuning or applying vibrato.
I don't understand why every double-neck I've seen has the 12 neck on top and the 6 on the bottom.
I'd definitely go the other way - strum my chords down low and shred leads up high.
+1 to the 7 / 14 wish!
No offence dude. Each to their own. And I agree on EBMM not sticking to the main stream. That's cool. Obvoiusly guys like Morse and Lukather and Edward don't seem to mind them either (and that's a pretty fine stable).
They've got some absolutely phenomenal players on their roster......I'm just not sure I want any of them decorating my house.
PS - I actually don't mind the look of most of the other EBMM's but John and I sure don't share the same taste in finishes.
I did take offense because you chose the words "look like total ass"...had you said, "I do not like the look of them", then fine. I'm sure I would get flamed if I came on these boards and said, "Ibby's suck the big one!"
Well, okay maybe "total ass" was a little strong but I see your sensitivity is likely based on your ownership of a JP7.
I hope you enjoy your axe. I just find for me that his signature axes have lost the sex appeal that the Ibby's had.
Don't take it too personally, it is the internet after all. Take it that these opinions are coming from a guy that generally appreciates more "traditional" shapes and natural finishes (mmmmm....quilted maple).
That sparkle blue finish?............that's nasty. But then maybe it'll look good under stage lights.
The 12 string headstock........hmm......
Wow. I like that color, that is nice!
