Watch as John Petrucci shares how his new signature Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty guitar helped shape the sound of Dream Theater’s innovative new album, ‘Distance Over Time’.

The sounds on this new record are a result of that further pursuit of trying to make the perfect instrument even better. The Majesty is the perfect guitar. It has been crafted and created in such a way, as far as the design, the shape, the dimensions, the feel, the look, everything about it pushes the boundaries even further.

The idea that somebody is going to pick up this instrument and enjoy all of the work that we did and get as much out of it as I do… that is something that I really, really value and cherish.

“The idea behind making this album was that I really wanted us to do something different. Get full band inclusion just like we did when we were younger in our 20s. We all put everything else aside and just immersed ourselves in the creative process and I think the music actually speaks to that. It’s really, really special.” -John Petrucci
