We interviewed John Petrucci’s guitar tech, Maddi Schieferstein, early in September 2015.
This is a fairly long interview so we’ve broken it up into 3 parts and added photos. Maddi is a very nice and entertaining guy. We are invited back to do another interview in November when they build a new rig. Lots of surprises coming that we weren’t allowed to talk about in this interview so please let us know if you liked these interviews – it will inspire us to do more.

2. How did Maddi become John Petrucci’s guitar tech
3. The big gear disaster in Mexico that changed their gear – a bit of a discussion of their current gear.
