Ibanez JPM P3 Japan 1997 owned by John  Petrucci (Dream Theater)

 

This is a very special one! I bought this guitar directly from John Petrucci (DREAM THEATER) back in 1999.
John was moving from Ibanez to Music Man and he was selling his Ibanez guitars from his personal website at that time managed by his wife Rena. 

I made the proposition to Rena to pick up the guitar directly from John as I knew he would be on DREAM THEATER's Pre-Metropolis 2000 Tour in The Netherlands later that year. The handover took place on the 11th of November 1999 at The IJsselhallen in Zwolle. A great moment as it was not the fan waiting for his idol but the opposite at that point.
