Hey Everyone!

I met with the rep from Sterling by Music Man at NAMM, and it looks like the new JP70 seven string will start shipping in February. The guitar is available to independent dealers in transparent green and transparent purple and will ship with a gig bag. The price for the 7's is $629.99. I will throw in a black, Planet Waves Planet Lock guitar strap and set it up with the strings of your choice (standard 7 string sets - if I have strings for a custom gauge in stock, I can throw those on instead).

One additional note - all of the JP-100's are now shipping with LiquiFire and Crunch Lab Dimarzio pickups. The price for new JP100 is $829.99 and includes the gig bag, strap, strings/setup.

If I get in on this initial order, I can probably hook up buyers with some Sterling shirts. Feel free to PM me or contact me at [email protected]

It was great meeting you Eric!

Yes, I'll hook you up some some additional SWAG for your buyers. T-shirts, hats, and stickers for any and all who pick one up through you.

We will start shipping them second week of February. All of the Autograph models are gone, but that's ok.

Ashe is Astley.
Astley is Ashe.

But seriously, seems like a RG74xx killer!
