Originally manufactured in 2002, this John Petrucci JP6 is finished in White Sparkle and features the optional matching painted headstock. The pickups are the original custom-wound DiMarzio neck and bridge humbuckers.
This guitar is in excellent condition, but does have some minor play & very light fret wear. There are small stress cracks on either side of the neck pocket. These cracks are somewhat common to see on the earlier JP guitars and are strictly a cosmetic issue that does not affect the play-ability or reliability of the instrument. There are no noticeable dings, dents, or scratches elsewhere on the body or headstock. Please note that after 20 years the “White Sparkle” color appears as slightly off-white.
The electronics function properly, with very little to no “scratchiness” in the pots.
Set up to factory specs and strung with Ernie Ball 10-46.
The guitar will come with the original style form-fit hard-shell case, and will ship in factory style packaging.
