They're bold. They're defined. They're ready. Sterling designed humbuckers in the neck and bridge of the Majesty offer you plenty of sonic quality. Designed for pristine note articulation, you'll find that they bring out the best in everything you play. With a sound hotter than a basket of chillies, the bridge pickup delivers one powerful punch. It will add tonnes of crunch to your riffs with the gain cranked, whilst keeping everything crystal clear.
The Sterling designed humbucker in the neck brings its own supreme quality to the table. Having a slightly warmer, more well-rounded sound, it is perfect for lead. No matter how fast you intend to shred, it will pick every note up with ease, and powerfully articulate it. There's also a 12dB volume boost which can be activated using the push/push function on the volume knob. This will add extra power to your guitar's voice, and help you to cut through the mix in style.

The hallmark of a legend
Signature style. Stunning sound. The Sterling by Music Man Majesty series is the spectacular result of John Petrucci’s demand for peak performance, playability, and design. The Majesty series is meticulously crafted to the specs of the shredding machine himself, with a mission to provide the perfect musical instrument for guitarists around the world. And it’s safe to say that they’ve delivered…
Only a true master of guitar could design an instrument so innovative. And John Petrucci certainly has the credentials to back up his stunningly ambitious design. Hailed as one of the greatest metal guitarists of all time, Petrucci rose to fame through his founding metal band; Dream Theater. And continues to electrify stages to this day. Making a record of seven appearances on the G3 tour, as well as featuring on over 25 albums – it’s no wonder Petrucci is held in such high esteem. Inspired by the best, the Majesty Series infuses the playability of a legend.
