John implores everyone to “make their own trouble on it” and, through their own musical experiences, to give it the same kind of extreme wear and battle scars that his personal guitar bears.

The John Mayer Special Edition BLACK1 Stratocaster shares features with his 2005 signature model; notably, a slightly oversized “C”-shaped neck and “Big Dipper” single-coil pickups wound to John’s exacting specifications. Upgraded BLACK1 features include gold hardware and a model-exclusive, super-protective Incase gig bag. Designed in collaboration with John, the gig bag can be customized using its modular accessory compartments and patch set (included).
