Ernie Ball Music Man has unveiled the 2019 edition of John Petrucci’s Majesty electric guitar. The Dream Theater guitarist’s signature axe has been refreshed with new DiMarzio humbuckers and will be offered in seven new finishes.

The humbuckers, Dreamcatcher (bridge) and Rainmaker (neck), are designed to both complement the axe’s tonewoods and meet Petrucci’s tone needs, according to the brand. The guitar has also been beefed up with a push/pull volume knob offering a gain boost of more than 20dB, as well as a piezo floating bridge tremolo pickup.
