I have not played a EB/MM JPM, but I've played a handfull of Silhouettes (the model the JPM was based on) and I love them. As far as prices go, it all depends on what options you get. The base JPM should be somewhere in the $1200 range, while the F-1 is $2400 I think.

im asuming with the Piezo's it would probably be a bit more, but that sounds like a very reasonable price for the BFR. EB/MM is the only company i know of that actually charges a reasonable price for there products. fenders cost about $800 more than they should Gibson is about $1000 overpriced ( although i cant stay away from them :sad PRS is still a little too much, but the Ernie Ball's are just...affordable
