So i saw this in the window of a local pawn shop. it looks alot like the Musicman JP6 but w/o the switch at the top, the headstock doesnt have John's printed signature on it, and the bridge looks a little different. They were only asking $150 for it. so since i'm a weary buyer i ask you guys, do you think this is a JP6? like maybe an older model or something? or not. and if so and i like how it plays should i get it? cause it seems like a steal to me if it is. just asking your guys opinion.


also in a partially related topic, how versatile is a floating tremolo? i mean like, would it be as much a pain in the ass as a floyd rose system is to me since i like to change tunings alot?

for 150? is it a JP6? or just a musicman.... if its that cheap must be from OLP.... i dunno

MAJOR EDIT:try to get as much info as possible. maybe the pawnshop is too stupid to realize what they have. i once missed out on an original Marshall 50watt jmp for $140. i even asked multiple times to make sure they werent' BSing. i went to the bank to get cash but when i came back 20min later it was sold

anyways it's probably not a JP sig but EB music man guitars are still worth more than 150....

That looks fake as shit but try it. For $150 you can't really go wrong if it plays well.

It is a major fake, and you should never buy a counterfeit guitar because hat just rewards and encourages the crooks.

It's not a fake, it's just not a true musicman per se. It's a Sterling model, which is licensed by Musicman.

EDIT: Note this is just a guess though.
I'm a musician/composer before I'm a guitar player.

Negative. The Sterling looks very different and says "Sterling" on the headstock:

ask them if you can play it a little, bring a piece of paper to write down notes. then go home and google your ass all night till you find something. i'm telling you man, sometimes you wait to long before you find out it really was worth a shitload....
