With a beefy neck and pickups designed in collaboration with the artist, the Fender John Mayer Signature Stratocaster recreates the sound and feel Mayer experiences onstage. From bedroom covers of "Gravity" to 12-bar jams at the blues bar, there's no better electric guitar for Mayer devotees.
Built for the BluesFans of John Mayer's electric catalog of work know what to expect from his signature Stratocaster. An alder-body Strat, the guitar features many appointments for blues and rock players to really dig into. The maple neck has a satin urethane finish and is given a slightly chunkier C profile for players who prefer a thicker neck. The bridge is fitted with an American Vintage synchronized tremolo to really make your notes shake. Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuners help to keep strings in tune through wild bends and runs.
Scoop Out Rich ToneThe John Mayer Signature Stratocaster is equipped with three exclusive Big Dipper pickups, designed to Mayer's specifications. These single-coil pickups are wound to provide a "scooped" tone, where the highs and lows are boosted while reducing the mids. This voicing ensures the sixth string booms with low-end authority, and your leads on the high frets will ring out and cut through the mix, while leaving a spot in the middle for vocals. Five-way pickup switching allows guitarists to find their own sweet spot.
Make it Your OwnThough this is a signature Fender Strat, it is not dominated by gaudy autographs or custom graphics, making it appealing to those who like the John Mayer Stratocaster's playability and sound but want the instrument to feel like it's their own. The signature touches, like an included but factory-removed backplate and vintage Fender headstock decal are subtle nods to the artist.
