Coachella, CA (February 6, 2017) -- Ernie Ball Music Man, one of the world’s premier guitar, bass and amp manufacturers, introduces its new Monarchy Series John Petrucci Majesty guitars for 2017.

The Monarchy Series features a highly flamed maple shield seated in an African Mahogany body. While previous models have featured a completely matte finish, the Monarchy series features a glossy finish on the front and a matte finish on the back for a luxurious look and feel. Equipped with DiMarzio Sonic Ecstasy pickups and a piezo bridge, the Monarchy series offer a versatile palette of tones.

Petrucci remarked, “The Sonic Ecstasy pickups have upped the game tremendously, making the Majesty guitars sound bolder, richer, clearer, and even more versatile and expressive than their predecessors.”

These guitars are available in six- and seven-string models in four exciting new finishes: Black Knight, Majestic Purple, Royal Red and Imperial Blue.

Petrucci added, “You have to hold one in your hands and see how gorgeous they are in person to truly appreciate the level of artistry that has gone into these instruments. I’m really just blown away by the continued innovation and spirit that EBMM infuses into these awe-inspiring instruments.”

The Ernie Ball Music Man Monarchy Series John Petrucci Majesty guitars will be available for pre-sale beginning April 3, and in stores May 1, starting at $2,999.99 SRP/MAP.
