After playing probably 15 of these badboys (JPX's, JP7s and BFR's includded) I finally got one. I always found the JP's super comfortable and always loved the looks of them. The bare necks on them also really appealed to me. I once borrowed a friends JP6 he was selling. Dude has 7 I think I loved it, but unfortunately I had to give it back to him cause I simply didn't have the bank to buy it. This guitar was on Kijiji for probably at least 6 months at about $1200 IIRC which is a reasonable price for a JP, but once again, I just didn't have the bank and if I did, I needed to put it towards other things. A couple days ago I saw it up on Kijiji for $800 which is a total steal. I had $700 in my car fund, and after talking to the guy for a bit he said he'd let it go for that. After a 6 hour road trip this past Wednesday, I picked it up.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

Nice! I've always wanted one of these. Was going to trade someone a while back for one, but he just ended up randomly not returning my emails after a few weeks. Oh wellz, maybe someday

Haha, yeah I got an insane deal on it! I love it. Nico, the birdseye neck is great, but there's one downfall to natural/oiled necks. You can tell when they're used. They feel great and they're fast as hell, but your natural hand oils and stuff get in the wood and you can kind of feel it. But that's just me being picky. It's an amazing guitar.

I almost picked up one of these the other day but as much as I love Petrucci, I just find his neck way too uncomfortable for my hands. Put a SlimTaper neck on it and I will be all over it

HNGD! She's a beaut!

$700? I'm gonna go off and kill myself now. Tom, let me know when the next JP6 comes around at that price. If there is, the Gibson's gotta go.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

Looks awesome, but how in the name of John Petrucci did you talk the dude into letting it go for $700?! I'm gonna go sell my soul to Tony Iommi so I can get one of these.
