I think his signature model sounds pretty sweet and it looks kind of cheesy with the color change paint put good lord you think that gaudy 80's looking day-glo ibanez he used to play looked better? Sorry, I know it's just a matter of taste, anyway, I think he changed because he's obsessed with Steve Morse who also uses a MusicMan. The feel of both of their guitars is quite similar but I think Morse's is much cooler, much better features, and I think it has a more rounded neck. It feels terrible trying to bend on the Peturcci model the neck is as thin and flat as Paris Hilton

i like the sound of some ernie ball guitars and basses. are you sure you didn't try one of those shitty OLP guitars that just get a license from ernie ball?
#7
i believe i heard somewhere that he wanted a piezo feature added to his guitar and ibanez's bridge would not support it nor would they make one to fit it, where as ernie balls musicman gave him the opportunity to have that peizo, i really dont know but thats what ive heard, but i actually really like his musicman i think it looks great and sounds amazing

i think Ibenez is a bit gay towards artists not letting them make the 100% guitar they specify, which is why Rusty switched, and probably John too.

Its coz he's too fast, the heat intensity just melted the neck and strings of the JPM...

He must have overused his killzone-mode switch.

Because he wanted to, or they gave him more money, or they played better... Who knows.

Don't forget he's also switched amps a lot, which contributes a hell of a lot more to tone.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

You kind of sound like Dr. Cox from Scrubs lol

BTW. I realy love the look of the JPM

basically, they let him design his guitar from the ground up, and he was intrical in the decision making process.

I think just about anyone would make the switch under those circumstances

As far as I know, Rusty wasn't offered a sig. Ibanez though.

that's kind of retarded if Cooley wasn't offered a signature Ibanez. He may not be the best writer, but he's one sick player.
