    How's he going to get kickbacks from this though? It's a JP-15..............maybe special or limited or what-not but it's still a Petrucci signature.

    If this and the Jp-8 aren't unveiled at NAMM this year I can't see them ever happening.

    I've no idea how kickbacks would work playing another guitarist's sig but Jason has been devoted to Ernie Ball JPs for years so I'm sure he's getting more than free guitars at this stage.

    Comes with a +5 to shred and Cherrio breakdowns

    I bet you they will at NAMM, last year the purple sparkle was a limited NAMM run for a couple of stores or something like that, then half way trough the year it was a limited run for all the PDN stores.

    specially if those Japanese guitars got sold out they would see it as a good indication these would sell

    Don't get your hopes up for a JP8 this year

    Why would a US manufacturer sell a model built around a US guitarist and use the Japanese market to test sales? Isn't there a ton of markup on import fees/taxes, etc? Genuinely curious about this business practice?

    true but i bet its more of a, bunch of JAp fans asking for that model, one store decided to make a limited run, gets sold, other stores in the US see that and think "hey, we can do that too", stores asking for limited runs, MM says "people like this model hay... lets make it happen"

    Japan also had the chameleon JPXs. There's just a few high-power dealers and a precedent for limited runs -- I don't think it has anything to do with jp fans or testing markets.

    this

    theoretically, Sweetwater or Axe Palace could order the same run, right? It's just that we don't see too too many of these happening. Yes, Axe Palace has definitely stepped up and started to introduce more and more runs, but I'd like to see some happen with brands other than Ibanez, ESP, and PRS.

    No different than someone doing a run of RG’s or something.

    usually dubaldo music is one of the stores that has special things, they were the one ofering the two sparkle majestys during last year NAMM, and usually he stocks color prototypes too. He got couple of SBMM JPs in a chameleon sparkle color at the moment.

    funny how theres no mention of these limited run JR JPs on the ernie ball forum but theres a tread in here. Love this forum lol

    The big Japanese dealers have always been really good at getting special runs of expensive guitars going. Far better than the American or European big shots, some legacy dealers and more enterprising newer enterprises get some cool stuff going, especially more recently.

    Sterling also seems a lot more open to runs these days. Talking to some dealers awhile back about getting stuff from EBMM even the more prominent long-time dealers said it was like pulling teeth unless EBMM was the one to initiate.

    I don't know if anyone saw this but there's a thread on the Ernie Ball forums that showed Jason making an Instagram post about his possible signature model. They're saying it's possibly based off the Majesty.

    EDIT: Hrmm... looks like that was posted in August... looks like Jason's signature model is not happening then.

    Not a signature but a custom. EBMM doesnt have a custom shop but will build customs for special players

    All in all it's probably a good thing for me that it isn't readily available as I'm not a huge fan of of JPs. I really want to like them, but something feels off for me. However, if it was available I don't know if I could resist anyway. :lol:

    I'm probably better off getting a sick buckeye burl topped guitar to my liking later on down the road instead which was the original plan after first seeing Jason's in some play through videos.
