    psyched to see the new purple JP157, I was looking into the teal/green one for a while but man the EBMM purple JP15 was by FAR one of my favorite JPs ever released

    Man, those new Majesty models look mighty tempting. Are the necks on the Sterling Majestys that much different from the EBMM models? I might be able to compromise with the neck shape since the insane upper fret access looks about the same and it's now packing Dimarzios and SS frets.

    Personally my old matte black JP70 was pretty good for the money, I just wasn’t sold on the bridge.

    Are there any Higher Quality drop-in options that fit the seven strings? Like hip shot or otherwise?

    I haven't tried it, but it looks like the Gotoh would fit on the same posts.
