Here's what Sterling say about the John Petrucci Signature 7 String
The JP157 comes with Sterling By Music Man designed pickups with a 12dB ‘push-push’ boost on the volume control, natural Maple neck and fretboard with pearloid JP shield inlays, and the venerable Modern Tremolo for the ultimate in tuning stability.
All of the Sterling by Music Man John Petrucci Signature Series Instruments feature John's signature on the headstock, and the "JP Shield" inlaid on the first fret.
