Product Description

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 Blues

Fans 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 Tone

The 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 Own

Though 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.

Features:

- Alder body
- Maple neck with satin urethane finish in larger C profile
- African rosewood fretboard
- Three Big Dipper single-coil pickups provide scooped tones
- Master volume and two tone controls
- American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge
- Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuners
- Vintage '50s Fender decal on headstock
- Case included

Built to the specifications of a modern icon, the Fender John Mayer Signature Stratocaster is crafted not only for Mayer's fans, but any blues aficionado looking for a rich and bold sound.

"Couldn't be any better"
Overall: The reason why I found myself buying this guitar is because is quite simply the best Stratocaster I've ever come across to. As simple as that. A few months ago I stepped into a huge guitar dealer in Northern Italy where I live, just to "take a look" around. After many years of playing and trying guitars I was not 100% excited about, I had in my mind to buy "the guitar" once and for all but I was going to have it only if it's well worth it, no hurry; it had to be a Strat for sure and I absolutely wanted a maple neck, possibly loaded with locking tuners and two-fulcrum non-vintage tremolo and whatever; the guy at the shop, who already knows me and understood the tone and feel I was searching for, came to me with this axe and told me: forget about the other guitars and try this beauty, trust me; I plugged it straight into a Marshall and, no kiddin', after the first few strums I was completely done!! Now, I always say that guitars and instruments in general are like women and also wine; it's personal, it's a special alchemy; I stopped valuating guitars based on the brand, the features or anything; all you have to do is going into a shop, grab the instrument and feel it. I could barely remember who on earth this John Mayer was and it's certainly not for the signature that I bought this guitar; anyway, I finally found "the guitar": This is it.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "BEST guitar for price and sweet, smooth modern Blues sound"
Sound: I have played 100s of guitars on severl different types of amps including Fender, Gibson, PRS etc.. This is the best sounding guitar I have ever played! The tone is so sweet through my Marshall DSL 100. Sat down with it and played it through a fender vibrolux and that was all i needed to hear. Formerly a Gibson guy, Fender has lured me back. Thanks so much for offereing a guitar that has helped me end my search for the perfect tone. Feature: Great custom pickups, great hardware, tuners. The ashtray cover is also a nice feature as well as the awesome case. Ease of Use: Plug it into a tube amp and you are set! Quality: Fantastic finish, sound, playability. Action was perfect right off the shelf. Value: This guitar could easily be priced thousand bucks more. Plays and sounds SOO much better then the custom Gibson i traded in for it. The Wow Factor: This is the guitar for me period. Overall: I cant see myself playing any other guitar as my primary.
