Hey everyone, Sterling By Musicman was kind enough to lend me their JP70 to demo/review on my Youtube Channel. Check it out! As far as I know I'm the first person to get my hands on this guitar, and this guitar rules! Such a solid instrument, and it sounds fantastic. There isn't much to criticize on it which is why the review is fairly short, all the fretwork is fantastic and the guitar resonates just like any JP I've ever played

From SBMM:

"Born out of the overwhelming request of fans and players worldwide, the JP70 takes the
player to new lows and musical highs. Matched, special design ceramic magnet high-output
pickups, 3-way pickup switching, and the venerable Music Man approved Sterling By Music
Man® recessed Modern Tremolo make this a seven string axe to wield with power."

I'm definitely going to try one out whenever a local store gets any stock. As an Ibanez player, I found both the JP6 and the Sterling JP models I've tried seem to feel more narrow on the neck. Looking at the specs for my rg1570, the JP6 should be almost identical for width. Maybe it's string spacing? Or the fact that the JP6 and JP60 seemed to had been kept in very dry conditions and the wood had shrunk

How easy would it be to block the trem?
