i am selling a perfect relic of john mayer’s black one strat. it has black one clone pickups, a worn fender custom shop neck, and all the same hardware, wear, and scratches as Johns. All genuine fender parts. another one is selling on ebay for 2K with the same pickups, and i have mine listed there for $1650 with shipping.
I will let it go to anyone on UG for $1540 including shipping.
this guitar is as close as you can get to the real thing without spending a fortune. plays awesome and turns a lot of heads, sounds spot on.
will entertain offers, but the only trades i would consider is a PRS, mesa amp, or true-bypass pedals + remaining cash.
I own one of the limited edition John Mayer Strats that came out in 2007 ( 1/500 in unique Cypress Mica finish). It is a wonderful guitar. Nice fat, chunky neck. Really comfortable to my hands. The Tall Dunlop 6105 frets have become my favorite.
The pickups are really where this guitar shines. The Big Dippers are a very articulate set of single coils, but also offer that warmth that a lot of strats lack. It also has cloth wiring.The guitar can do it all. It can do blues to jazz, and even some rock with the right amp and effects. Also the Incase bag that it comes with is pretty awesome. It has the weight of a gig bag, but the durability and strength of a molded case. It also has all these compartments that you can pretty much stuff all your equipment in and go. Here is mine:
If you’re not into the whole relicing thing, you might wanna skip this story and read something else. Might I suggest this? Check out this Fender prototype of the new John Mayer relic Stratocaster, which is based on – get this – John’s Fender Custom Shop Relic ’61 Strat. Yeah, it’s not vintage like a lot of people naturally assume. So this is a relic of a relic. – See more at: http://iheartguitarblog.com/2009/05/news-john-mayer%E2%80%99s-prototype-relic-relic-fender-strat.html#sthash.5H5Cgnf8.dpuf
