Mesa/Boogie JP-2C Head - Limited Edition John Petrucci Signature Model
Mesa Boogie JP2C Head - John Petrucci Limited Edition
If you play electric guitar, chances are you've heard of John Petrucci and Dream Theater. Over the years he has enjoyed many Mesa Boogie amps including the Mark IIC+, Dual Rectifier, TriAxis, Mark IV and Mark V to name a few. In celebration of John's relentless pursuit of excellence, Mesa has introduced the JP-2C Limited Edition. An upscale rendering of the Signature Model bearing his name. It's the Head that everyone's talking about dressed in a Custom Anodized Gun-Metal Grey Panel Bezel and Oxblood-Stained Private Reserve Flame Maple Grille-Board with inlaid Mother of Pearl Logo and Signature Badge. Each one also wears an etched, numbered Authentication Badge bearing Randall Smith and John Petrucci's signatures. This signature model is limited to 325 in the world! Our is #114.
All Things Heavy!
But more specifically; the highest headroom Clean sound possible, a Crunch rhythm that has Lead Channel gain available, but is tight, grinding and articulate, and the ultimate Boogie Lead Channel with access to even more saturation and thh ability to track any technique and speed while also reaching to the stratosphere for single note solos.
In that spirit, unlike other Mesa amplifiers, the JP-2C foregoes the concept of multiple voicing Modes derived from other Mesa circuits and instead dedicates each of the three Channels exclusively to circuit voicing's of the Mark IIC+, including the new SHRED Mode, which further enhances the top end harmonic layering of the original IIC+ Lead Circuit.
