JP7 or Majesty Glacial Frost?
I have owned the Sterling MAJ100, and found it to be quite smaller than what I am used to.
The JP7 has some weight behind it that appeals to me since I primarily play Gibson Les Pauls and Explorers.
The JP7 is in flawless condition, while the Majesty appears to have some significant wear in the smoked chrome on the bridge. This isn’t really an issue as I can have it replace for the black hardware in the future.
That being said, I am not much of an extended range player. I usually tune my guitars to open C and prefer Devin Townsend style metal and ambient playing. I am not much of a shred guy and I have read that the Majesty is a bit better feel for rhythm with the slightly thicker neck (front to back not side to side)
I took the time to go to the local GC to test drive a EBMM Majesty, and I must say I enjoyed the weight it carried compared to the Sterling model which felt like a toy.
I am planning on going back because the guy at guitar center had me playing through a Peavy 6534 which I was not a fan of and I think may have turned me off to the Music Man initially.
I know it is a matter of playing and how it feels, but I wanted to get some feedback from people who may own both or have owned both.
What did you like about the guitars? And which did you prefer more?
