    They look nice and all, but the sbmm JP7 I owned and all the ones ive played (3-4 IIRC) need a serious step up in the mojo department.


    They played ok, but sound wise/feel wise, definitely not worth the new price. In fact, if when I had bought mine I couldn't get it for the $300 I got it for, I wouldn't have gotten it at all.


    YMMV but apart from looks its hard for me to get excited about them.

    I have one of the original OLP JP6's and it, surprisingly, is really awesome feel and tone wise. But that is after the upgraded tuners, saddles, and a Jugg in the bridge.

    Please God let it be some boring color. If it's see through black/blue with a quilt I'm so boned.

    yeah bit disappointed in there, but like apple, they already have the technology they just are juicing their current models and releasing the "updates" latter on to keep the cash flowing.

    only one color of majesty?, I know its hard to build guitars that would sell, but they could had done better than that

    and they took off a bunch of old models too, and nothing new in the color department. Still disapointed the only options are red burst, or red burst

    I was looking forward for a 7 string, but nop

    and the took away the black hardware of the JP157??? I though it looked pretty cool, oh well, not really fan of brown guitars either lol

    also I must say this "normal mapple" actually looks far better due to the lighter color wood than the roasted version of the MM ones to my eyes.

    If these were released in the "blueberry" version I would had bought one in a snap.


    Also care to notice than both the Majesty and the JP15 have regular pups on them, which helps to keep cost down on the JP, but the majesty is more expensive.

    this is normal for them. They would latter maybe on summer namm or next year release a "D" version with Dimarzios. Either way they are giving us the 12db push-push boost which its actually pretty awesome feature specially at this price range

    Hah! I thought I only had a few more guitars to get to complete my collection of SBMM guitars. Looks like i'll be adding two more. However, I'm a little bummed they discontinued some of the colors for the JP100D. I was about to get one.

    This Stingray is almost like it's teasing Jeff Kiesel or something. Maple top ends here... And here... But not on the goddamn arm contour.

    lol but if you see the vaders you would know they are half ncie top, half core wood in the arm contour, and they dont look good at all

    plus if you see the JPs BFR MM you would notice they do exactly the same as this bass.

    they kinda share a lot of the bodies style minus the pick guard of course. Like JP came and said "I like the stingray 5 string, make a guitar version of that"

    but I must give credit to Sterling for this model. SBMM often copies MM (kinda the point), but MM doesnt have this bass model, and I find quite attractive this approach with the nice figured tops, more bass makers should start taking notice, guitar players always get the nice mapple tops, bass players not.

    Not a fan of the honey/yellow colors myself, but think of the possibilities of this bass using the color and wood combos of the JP BFRs :agreed:



    duuude just think of that bass but with this color and top

    Well looking at the website the JP157 has my attention. Also the majesty is extremely tempting too. The main thing that makes me want these is that they use the same/similar body/neck woods as the full out EBMM's (Mahogany neck/basswood body majesty, mahogany body maple neck JP). Price point seems bang on in my opinion for those models. I Definitely have to try one out.
