Hey guys I am considering purchasing a new EBMM Majesty Monarchy, I have never had an opportunity to try one and the nearest dealer is about a 4 hour ride, can anyone tell me how these guitars compare in quality to comparable PRS, Gibson CS, etc? Are they worth the cash? I had ruled out $2500 and up guitars years ago because I didn't feel they were that much better than the $1000 range guitars but the specs on this are awesome looking. I am not a fanboy but I do own a JP-2C and this seems like it would be an awsome pairing with the amp. Give me your honest opinions please & thanks.

I haven't played a Majesty but I'd like to. Music Man makes an excellent guitar. I own three different MM models and I'd put the quality of these up there with any other company.
If you have played a JP model then you should have an idea of the neck shape. It's the same as the neck shape on the Majesty.

I have not yet played the Majesty, but I have played a couple of the current JP models, which are already extremely comfortable and FULL of tone. The idea behind the Majesty was to streamline the original concept even more to have the ultimate in comfort, a high performance live guitar for playing difficult material with maximum ease. I have no doubt they achieved it! I didn't like the looks of the first few Majestys I saw, but I have warmed up to them since.

Expensive, but yes, they ARE a lot better than most guitars. :shock:

Personally, I am holding out for a good deal on a Barolo JPX, my favorite of his entire lineup.

Well I did buy a new purple 6 string version and really am impressed with it. It’s functionality is second to none. Plays a lot like my Ibanez S Series prestige but the ergonomics are way better. The piezo is phenomenal, the Dimarzio pups are ok, not my favorite but have a huge mid bite that cuts through great. So all in all I can say it’s a top notch piece that I’m very happy with and I even like the trem as it stays in tune quite well. Oh and it’s a nice match with my JP2C :mrgreen:
