Well actually got it a week or so ago. It's an EBMM JPXI. Best playing JP yet. It's main difference from the other JP's is that it uses a slightly thinner neck with a flatter 20" radius vs. the normal 15" radius. It also has SS frets. It plays amazingly well. The body is alder with a maple top and mahogany tone block and the neck is mahogany with an ebony board. Here are some pics.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I got it in trade, but these run about $2500.

No silver sparkly guitar in the back thats an old stone finish Jackson Dinky.

A piezo is an acoustic pickup that is not magnetic like normal pickups. The piezo has an individual pickup for each string in the saddles. Creates sound based on string vibration. Makes an extremely nice almost acoustic like clean tone. Also can be blended with the magnetic pickups for great clean tones. These guitars are as versatile as they come.

HNGD!

I was always wondering - how good is the tremolo? Does it stay in tune after abuse? Never had a chance to see an EBMM JP in poland so really curious!

The JP trem is the best trem on the market. 95% of the stability of a Floyd with none of the hassle. I can take off all the strings and restring and retune any of the JP's in under 10 minutes. The JPXI also has a slight redesign of the trem which all of the new JP's will have. If you notice the trem looks a little blockier on the treble side. They did this to move the trem post out a bit. When doing crazy dives the older trems could have the high E saddle hit the trem post (honestly Never had it happen to me) but they are always trying to improve these things.

HNGD! Great guitars you have there!
I was wondering about the trem also. Agree that it works great but how was the tuning stability accomplished? I’m sure the locking tuners help but do you think EBMM JP nuts are made from a special material? Or maybe just super accurate string slotting?

The tuning stability is accomplished through a combination of great trem design, locking tuners and a proprietary compensated nut.

also the upper horn is the same thickness as the lower horn ( The regular JP's have a thicker upper horn)
With that said, how do the frets feel? I've never played a guitar with SS frets.
I ordered a JP6 BFR in ruby red in march, should be here in august.

Not a Petrucci fan, but I like this a lot. I do love a good EBMM. Fretboard looks heavenly smooth.

SS frets feel smoother. Makes bends a little more effortless. SS frets are basically like having brand new frets forever.
