Ernie Ball Music Man and Signature Artist John Petrucci are proud to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the John Petrucci Signature Guitar. For over two decades the world-renowned Dream Theater guitarist has partnered and collaborated with Ernie Ball Music Man crafting some of the world’s most forward-thinking and innovative signature instruments. To celebrate 20 years, Ernie Ball Music Man is offering a limited edition 20th Anniversary JP as well as a limited edition 20th Anniversary Majesty. Both are available now in either a 6 or 7 string version.

We’ve collaborated with John Petrucci on a 20th-anniversary mini-documentary with footage dating back to the early 2000s, the documentary examines the evolution of John’s signature guitar, his relationship with the Ernie Ball Music Man, and features extensive interviews with Petrucci, Sterling Ball, and members of the Ernie Ball Music Man Engineering and Product Development team, who each worked on the first JP guitar design with John and have been an instrumental part of its progression since the beginning. Watch below:

I can’t even express how proud I am of the success of my line of guitars with Ernie Ball Music Man, it blows my mind. I think the coolest thing about it is that we did it on our own terms. That commitment… from the first conversation I had with Sterling about creating guitars, that came from an authentic place.

Whether I’m by myself creating music, whether I’m with the guys in a live setting and jamming, I’m always inspired. Whatever I’m trying to do on the guitar, the guitar is letting me do it to the best of my ability.
