The Rainmakerâ„¢ Neck was developed for John Petrucci of Dream Theater. John says the new Rainmakerâ„¢ neck pickups are â€œthe quintessential tone-monsters weâ€™ve been working on together since our very first collaboration, and the end result is absolutely mind-blowing.
â€œFrom the moment I plugged in the guitar and played the first note, I knew that we achieved Holy Grail-level results. With these pickups, the Majestyâ€™s inherent tonal complexities and beauty are brought out in a way that gives the guitar an expressive, intense, fearless, creamy, gorgeous, pure, unobstructed, and addictively powerful voice. It literally feels like the guitar is alive and ready to jump out of my hands!â€
Although designed specifically for Johnâ€™s neck-through signature Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty guitar, the basic performance shows the overall direction John said he wants to follow in pursuit of his personal sound. This pickup has an increased sensitivity to pick attack and more dynamic range overall. The Rainmakerâ„¢ Neck has an interesting blend of both warmer highs and more open mids to blend classic and modern approaches to the neck pickup.
John claims, â€œThese pickups are truly inspirational, and I look forward to hearing them roar on stage and in the studio night after night!â€
