Maddi’s Corner – Tips from John Petrucci’s Master Tech
« on: August 16, 2017, 09:42:41 AM »
I think this is probably the right section for this, if not feel free to move. Looks like Maddi has started a blog over on the Music Man website, first article is up here -

Good read! Looking forward to seeing more from Maddi. He seems like such a smart, level-headed guy.

Yes, good read.  I like that he gave us the history of how he became JP's tech.  Thanks for posting!

A very interesting read. I would love to own a Music Man, but my feeble skills are hardly worthy of one.

Just the article I needed. I was having that exact problem with my Floyd rose after changing strings. I would have never thought about tightening the springs to compensate the bridge being elevated above the body drastically raising the action. It was like a tuning nightmare, back and forth back and forth just to go out again.  That article was very helpful. :tup
