I have been thinking about buying a JP music man 7 string sometime in the future. Im thinking about buying used maybe. What is the best models? It needs to have crunch lab+liquifire and piezo system.
Also in this video:

The short haired guy called Lee says:
"You can tune one string a whole step down...It dosent go out of tune".
Was that in one sentence? So its a floating bridge, that dont go out of tune?
Also does the trem hold tune well??
Thanks.

The regular JP is basswood, with a maple neck. BFR models have alder bodies, with a mahogany toneblock, mahogany neck, and maple tops. The Koa BFR has a solid mahogany body.

They all have 15" fretboard radii, except the JPXI, which has a 20" radius.

Other than that, all the models are very similar. Regular JP's (non-BFRs) don't all come with piezo, shield inlays or matching headstock, those are all options. All BFR's have piezo and shield inlays. The JPX (and only the JPX) has a chambered body.

Build quality wise, there isn't any difference. They are all built on the same machines, with the same level of attention. The differences are just tonal and aesthetic. The BFR's will have a thicker, fuller tone, the basswood models are a bit more transparent sounding.

What jp7 do you have(saw it in the sig) and why? How is it to for example ibanez?

The neck is a little thicker than an original Wizard, but it feels a lot better. Much more comfortable profile, and the oiled finish is amazingly smooth. There is a reason everyone who owns a MusicMan raves about their necks, its because they're incredibly comfortable and smooth.

The BFR's have painted necks, which aren't quite as smooth, but the poly they use isn't sticky like a lot of other finished necks are.
