Dream Theater’s John Petrucci and Ernie Ball Music Man are celebrating 20 years in business with a range of limited-edition Petrucci guitars for the 20th anniversary.
The JP 20th anniversary line will be a limited series, and the company is also offering a limited 20th anniversary edition of the Majesty guitar, available in 6 or 7 string versions.
To mark the occasion, Petrucci also shot a 20th anniversary mini-documentary with the company which you can see below, with footage from the early 2000s. In short, you can trace the evolution of the guitar of Petrucci through discussions with the guitarist, as well as Sterling Ball and members of engineer Ernie Ball Music Man and the product development team.
“I can’t even express how proud I am of the success of my guitar line with Ernie Ball Music Man, it blows my mind,” says the guitarist. “I think the coolest thing is that we did it on our own terms. That commitment… from the first conversation I had with Sterling about making guitars, which came from an authentic place.
