Hey, I am really wanting to purchase the JP Musicman, but I really dont have the money. How reliable is the OLP rip-off and is it got as decent playing qualities?
#2
The OLP is more work than you'll want. Crappy tuners and they all feel different. I've heard problems with changing the strings on it too. I can't believe Petrucci allows his name to be on those. Save up for the real deal and make whatever you have work for now.

OLP is pretty trashy, you can do heaps better in the price range. What the guy above said, if I were JP I'd never let them put my name on such a guitar.

Okay, my guitar teacher has the real deal, and it's amazing to play. Better then any other guitar, but I just don't have like $2,000 AUD.

its 2000 CND ... so its cheaper in AUD
also if you dont get the mystic dream paint job thats 400$ USD off (colour sucks anyways imo)
dont get the peizio - thats a couple hundred off
dont get the custom JP inlays - also quite a couple hundred off

the MM JP isnt too expensive when you throw out that crap...

Piezos are one of the best things about that guitar, they're way awesome.

I'll eventually get an EBMM JP7 in redburst with piezo...

Mysteek what are you using now? I was thinking about getting the OLP Petrucci earlier this year and do a few things to it, but really isn't worth putting the money into it.
