The progressive metal band’s sultans of shred talk about the gear on The Distance Over Time tour, including John Petrucci’s brand-new Music Man Majesty Series signature models and Myung’s potential 2020 signature bass.

John Myung has seven basses on the road and uses various tunings. His main instrument, in standard, is this double-humbucker custom-build that’s evolved into a prototype for a 2020 signature model release. He’s been using the instrument for four years and is super satisfied. It’s a 6-string bass with 5-string neck, which Myung describes as “just the right fusion of elements for me.” It has, in his words, “the classic Music Man sound.”
