    Idk the more I look at it, the more I actually like the bridge. I wish it wasnt so shiny, maybe a flat black like the JR EBMM's. I bet it feels really nice on the hand.

    I came to this thread specifically to read the comments of people shitting all over it. Man, it’s just predictable at this point :lol: but I’m glad to see some people are happy with it, I never thought this was gonna happen.

    I think it looks cool, I don’t get how else they could’ve designed the bridge, but hey fixed Majesty 8 string. I’d play it.

    Who's ready for these to sell out then go on Reverb for 6k-7k with such descriptions as " 8 sTrInGs JuSt ArEn'T fOr Me" and " My WiFe SaId I hAvE tO sElL"

    Looks cool but I will not be buying because 25.5-27. Are you kidding me?

    That bridge tho



    I dig everything else though. So glad they went for an all-solid finish. The body surprisingly works.

    Yeah I’d love to see that bridge on normal 7’s or 6’s as well. Do I ever expect it? Not a chance. But it would be awesome.

    I’m not shocked. But I am still a little shocked. Just because like, bro it’s been half a day, lol.

    It’s a cool EBMM to own that’s for sure.

    I gotta say I prefer the keyboardist's signature 8-string multiscale guitar.

    I like the new updated title of this thread... don't forget to re-update it again when all are sold out... and again when they'll show up on Reverb... :D

    If that bridge grows any more you'll have to sell some cabs to make space.

    I like the piezo. Especially now that the Hannes is dead and gone.

    For how big that bridge is they should have designed a trem. Is the body just a normal sized Majesty? I'm not a 'JP guy' but it looks really good with a 8 string neck.

    On one hand I didn't think something /100 from Petrucci would take so long to sell out, on the other hand I do think to move 100 high end 8 strings in a day is quite amazing.

    There are enough guitars for trem lovers in the world today, fixed bridge fans rise up.

    This is an order of magnitude bigger looking than the also ugly Hannes, which is at least partially black to hide some heft on certain setups.
