Evan Bradley was recently crowned as the deserving grand prize winner of our Match the Master contest. Part of his prize package was a master class with John Petrucci himself, and both were looking forward to sitting down for some virtuoso guitar talk.

You really matched every one of my riffs with precision, accuracy and incredible feel. Wow!! I’m looking forward to meeting you real soon and trading some licks! – John

This past week, John and Evan met up to do just that, armed with their Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty electric guitars. Evan also saw Dream Theater’s soundcheck, met the band, and saw a show with a VIP experience.


Evan also won the following prize package:

  • Tickets, flight, hotel and transportation for him and a guest to see Dream Theater live
  • Private master class with John Petrucci backstage at the show
  • Ernie Ball Music Man Majesty guitar
  • Year supply of Ernie Ball strings
  • Mesa Engineering Mark Five guitar head + 4×12″ guitar cabinet
  • Fractal Audio Systems Amp Modeler / FX Processor
  • TC Electronic Triple Delay Pedal autographed by Dream Theater
  • 2 DiMarzio John Petrucci custom pickup covers
