Sterling by MusicMan JP150 Neptune Blue

Electric guitar based on the John Petrucci Signature Series. The Sterling JP150 is a John Petrucci signature model and is based on the Music Man JP15. The guitar provides you with the same playing experience and tones that Petrucci demands from his own instruments. This model features the inclusion of an active 12db preamp and ensures that you'll have a wealth of sounds to play with. The core body wood of African mahogany is highly valued for its resonance and light weight, while the quilted maple top provides a stunning finish. The JP150 features a maple neck with 25,5“ scale that has been roasted to improve resonance, feel, and stability. Maple fretboard with 24 frets, 16“ radius and 42mm nut. The locking tuners alongside a modern floating tremolo bridge will add to this guitar's excellent tuning stability and intonation. Chrome black hardware. The JP150 features Sterling by Music Man designed pickups and an active electronic circuit (requiring 9v battery). This gives you a 12db boost, accessible via the volume control, and can be used to cut through the mix at the push of a button; ideal for those important solos. The combination of humbucking pickups and the active circuit ensures that, just like John Petrucci himself, you will be able to achieve a wide variety of tones whether that be distorted riffing, liquid smooth soloing, or crystal clean picking. Pickups: 2x Sterling humbucker. Controls: 1 Volume w/ Active 9V Powered 12dB Push-Push Boost, 1 tone, 3-way pickup selector. Includes heavy-padded gig bag. Colour: Neptune Blue

Do you own Sterling by MusicMan JP150 Neptune Blue or have you had a chance to try it?


Strats, TLs, LPs, Vs, SGs, Superstrats, semiacoustics, Jazzmasters, Jaguars and other beasts. Electric guitars  come in many shapes and colors, with many woods, pickups, bridges and other enticements.It is therefore not hard to lose your way for good when buying one for the first time. Take it easy, we shall help you pick the right guitar – first we must find out what instrument is right for you.

How to choose, when I do not know what sort of music I want to play with my guitar?

Here we would recommend an electric or an acoustic-electric guitar. As both offer the widest range of sound options. Nobody said that you cannot play a sensitive tone on an electric guitar or a rock solo on an acoustic-electric guitar. The sky is the limit.

  • ST Models - a true classic which serves as the model of an electric guitar today. It is at home in Rock, Blues, Hard Rock, and Metal. To its fans belong such giants of the music business like Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, John Frusciante, Eric Clapton and Buddy Holly.
  • Singlecut Models - for more than 60 years, the LP sound does belong among the key sounds of the electric guitar. Heavy riffs and sweet solos; such are the instruments celebrated by such personalities as Jimmy Page, Slash, Zakk Wylde, Bob Marley and Billie Joe Armstrong.
  • Semi Acoustic Models - take note, semiacoustic guitars are not just for jazzmen. Their rich and natural tone is perfect for rock too, but do not forget the feedback. Guitarists like Joe Pass, Pat Metheny, Dave Grohl, B.B. King and Chuck Berry fell in love with this instrument.
  • Hard & Heavy Models - every fan of heavy distortions would pick an instrument from the Hard and Heavy section. These guitars are ready to give the most brutal sound, extreme flat tuning or a play with several strings, then you are used to. Names like Stephen Carpenter, TosinAbasi, Kerry King and Randy Rhoads speak for themselves.
  • Jaguar Jazz Models - number one choice for all rebels. The surf-rock weapons from the 60ties found their niche after the appearance of alternative guitar solos of the 90ties. Kurt Cobain, Kevin Shields, J. Mascis, and Johnny Marr. If you recognize these names than you surely know the sound of these infamous jewels of music.
  • SG Models - did someone mention AC/DC? Yes, SG guitars are an absolute necessity for every hard-rock fan. Legends like Angus Young, Tony Iommi and Frank Zappa always had or have this guitar at hand.
  • PRS Models - a sound ready to fulfill all your dreams – from gentle accords to massive riffs. Guitars with this body shape come equipped with a pair of humbuckers and their magic is understood by players like Carlos Santana, Dave Navaro, Mark Tremonti and Orianthi. 
What characteristics of electric guitars influence the overall sound?

Perhaps you now know what guitar model is for you, but before you dedicate yourself to the purchase,consider the individual parts of an electric guitar. Perhaps you will find something to inspire you or point you in the right direction. Every guitar model is made in several configurations. This allows you to combine aesthetics with the sound that harmonizes with you from the get go.


Electric guitar bodies and necks are usually made from so-called “tonewoods”. These woods can “listen” to your play and then transfer the sound along in various ways. Every wood transfers the sound-vibrations in a different way, this influences the final sound of the instrument. So, what are the characteristics of the various woods?

  • Alder– high resonance, long sustain, and a rich response in the mid-range frequency. It is most often used for bodies of ST, T and Super ST models.
  • Ash– has similar sound characteristics as alder and is therefore used in the same guitar models. It also brings an attractive appearance with beautiful decorations into the game.
  • Mahogany – mid-hard, dense and highly resonant wood, known for its strong response in mid-range and bass frequencies. Most often found in Singlecut type guitars.
  • Lime – soft and relatively light wood used to make guitar bodies. Lime is known for its rich dynamics with a strong resonance in the mid-range frequency.
  • Agathis – a wood with similar sound characteristic as alder, but its resonance is significantly lower. Due to this is agathisused to make cheaper guitars.
  • Rosewood – hard wood with a high resonance, mainly used in guitar fingerboards. Rosewood allows several color variations and is known for its porous surface.
  • Maple– a very hard wood a build stone of many a neck, fingerboard and resonance board. Maple is famous for its great resonance in the high-rangefrequency.
  • Ebony – a beautiful and hard wood, soft to touch and mostly used to make fingerboards for more expensive guitars. Ebony is wonderful for bass frequencies.


Knobs and a glossy metal or plastic tab – if see this part of the guitar, then you are looking at the pickups. These small parts of the electric guitar influence the overall sound of the instrument the most, so be especially careful with your choice. Luckily there are only three main choices to pick from.

  • Single-Coil for a clean and clear sound - a pickup for this type is made from magnets and a coil; it is an absolute classic. It is found on such iconic models as type ST or T and on a lot of other instruments – where it provides a typical glassy sound. Many giants like Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, David Gilmour and John Frusciante prefer the single-coil. Its frame is however susceptible to hum naturally.
  • Humbucker for strong riffs and drawn out solos - A humbucker is made from two coils with opposite polarity, which ensures that their hums cancel each out. In addition to that it belongs to the strong sounds rich in bass and mid frequencies. The pitch is not as clear as with single coils, but who cares if you are playing riff of your life at the time? For guitarists Slash, Jimmy Page, Joe Pass and Steve Vai, the “humbucker” is the base for their sound.
  • Active pickups for intransigent distortion - if your goal is some form of Metal then you should focus on a guitar with active pickups. Active pickups are fitted with a battery-powered preamplifier thatprovides them with energy at a point where passive pickups would lose energy. Guitarist like Kirk Hammet, Jim Root, John Petrucci, Stephen Carpenter and TosinAbasi enjoy a strong response in bass and mid-range. You should enjoy it too.


How the construction influences the overall sound of the guitar. Turn the guitar around and inspect how the body and neck are connected. What do you see?


I have achieved an understanding of electric guitars, but are strings really that important? Yes, they are! Strings are to a guitar what a transmission is to a bicycle. If you play lightly and do not need to rely on a dozen-second-long sustain, you can relax with a clear conscience at smaller thickness – such as 9 or 10.

Is there an instrument that is universally considered as a good choice?

Yes. Most guitar players in the world go through their Strat or LP period sooner or later. Or through both. Guitars of such a type are considered to be the ultimate classic, tried throughout the decades. If you pick up one of the model shapes, it is very likely that you will be satisfied.

If the longevity of the strings or your comfort is important for you, you should look for strings with a special coating, one that protects them from corrosion and contamination. Such sets are however less bright than uncoated ones. 

Is just a guitar sufficient for me, or do I need anything else?

If you want to sound as if you were playing on metal strings, then yes. Every electric guitar needs an amplifier or a combination of an amplifier and a speaker - known as a combo. To connect these two essential tools you also need a cable.
The fun begins for real only after connecting an effects unit, it makes an electric guitar one of the most versatile instruments. Choose the right combo and the right effects unit and make full use of your electric guitar!
