Mayer Black One

Back in issue 327 we spoke to John Mayer about a great many things, and in the course of our conversation he mentioned that Fender was working on a production replica of one of his favourite Strats, The Black One. You heard it here first, but now Fender has finally taken the wraps off the John Mayer Special Edition ‘Black1’ Stratocaster.

The guitar was widely used on his superb third solo album Continuum, and this limited edition series (just 500 will be made) seeks to emulate The Black One’s key features.

It has similar specs to his current (and fantastic) John Mayer signature model, with the same pickups, neck profile and electronics, but also features natty gold hardware and an exclusive incase gigbag that can be customised using modular accessory pouches and patches.
