This John Petrucci BFR 6-string is a mint condition time capsule from 2009, with zero signs of play wear! Finished in Carmel Apple Delight as part of the limited production Dargie Delight 2 package, this model features an alder body with a mahogany tone block and maple top for a complex depth of tone and articulation. The slim Honduran Mahogany neck has an ebony fretboard with pau/ablone oval inlays and nickel frets. The guitar is powered by the Dimarzio Liquifire & Crunch Lab humbuckers with a coil-splitting tone pot and the acoustic sounds of a piezo-equipped bridge. A 3-way switch on the upper horn allows you to toggle between or combine the sounds of the humbuckers and piezo system while a pair of output jacks allow you to run the guitar in mono or stereo. The Ernie Ball Music Man floating JP tremolo system works in tandem with Schaller locking tuners to provide exceptional tuning stability.
Includes original case candy, hang tag, Certificate of Authenticity, the BFR style hardshell case, and original factory box (will ship double-boxed). We were the original retailer of this particular guitar, and YES – the legendary DuBaldo Music Center case candy is also included!
