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.
Behold the Fender Custom Shop John Mayer Limited Edition BLACK1 – a reproduction with every detail of the guitar John Mayer has used on many of his most beloved songs…There’s only 83 being made and each will include the following:
• Personal letter from John Mayer
• DVD – The Making of BLACK1
• Hardcase and custom gigbag
Fender Musical Instruments Corporation has teamed up with Grammy Award winning guitarist, singer and song writer John Mayer to release a new instrument based on Mayer’s own personal electric guitars. A combination of classic Fender specifications and newly designed features, the new Fender John Mayer Signature Model Stratocaster guitar is designed by Mayer himself. Known for playing a number of different Stratocaster guitars throughout his career, John jumped at the chance to add his own preferences to a new Fender model.
The guitar evokes a ’60s era “vibe” with vintage Fender bridge and tremolo, and vintage tuning machines. The back of the maple neck, the fingerboard and headstock are given a tinted and buffed finish to complete the vintage look. Newly designed Big Dipper single coil pickups were designed for John’s modern tastes, which accentuate the bass and treble frequencies while softening the mid-range, offering the unique tones found in Mayer’s playing. They are controlled with a volume and two tone control knobs, and standard Fender 5-way switching.”
I figured I should post this for a couple of reasons. (1) I have been posting lots about John Mayer lately, so why not keep it up? (2) I would like to own a sweet electric guitar, and this one fits the description (“sweet”) pretty well. *wink*
I would also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that tickets to the John Mayer Trio shows in Minneapolis (9/23) and Milwaukee (9/24) go on sale this Saturday.

Bei der Entwicklung dieser unverzichtbaren Signature-Gitarre hat Grammy-Gewinner John Mayer intensiv mit Fender zusammengearbeitet. Zu den Features zählen ein Korpus aus Erle sowie ein Ahornhals mit seidenmatter Urethan-Lackierung und etwas größerer C-Form, der in einer polierten Kopfplatte mit ’50er Vintage-Schriftzug endet. Das Griffbrett aus afrikanischem Palisander hat einen Radius von 9,5” und ist mit Dunlop® 6105 Bünden bestückt.
Weitere Highlights sind die drei neuen “Big Dipper” Singlecoil Pickups mit reduzierten Mitten, die genau nach Mayers Spezifikationen gewickelt wurden, sowie das synchronisierte American Vintage Tremolo mit fünf Tremolo-Federn (ohne Rückwand), die Vintage Fender/Gotoh® Stimmmechaniken und das dreilagige „brown shell“ Pickguard.
When Grammy Award-winning blues-rock guitarist John Mayer sets out to change the world, he does it with his modified Stratocaster, personally customized to deliver his sound the way he likes it. The Fender John Mayer Stratocaster puts all of the special features of his favorite guitar in your hands. The alder body, with its spectacular Olympic White finish, is equipped with a trio of Big Dipper single coil pickups wired to John Mayer’s specifications for the special “scooped” mid-range voice. The vintage style synchronized tremolo with bent steel saddles is held in place by 5 springs for stiffer, more stable action while the back cover plate has been left off to increase the guitar’s overall resonance. The thick “C” shaped maple neck is capped with an African rosewood fretboard for a slightly warmer tone, and the 25.5” scale length, 9.5” radius and 21 narrow jumbo frets let you bend strings without fretting out. The vintage style tuners add to the classic looks and performance, while the string tree sits further back from the nut for a more relieved angle. The John Mayer Stratocaster comes with an Incase Gig Bag to keep your guitar like new.
This unplayed open box 2012 John Mayer Signature Strat is one of the great guitars in the Fender Signature series. Built to the Grammy-winning artist’s personal specs. You get a unique, slightly bigger C-shaped neck profile and a trio of Big Dipper single-coil Strat pickups (with a special “scooped” midrange voicing), for starters. Five tremolo springs are installed at the factory, and the string tree is a bit further from the nut than it would be on a standard Strat. Grab this incredible John Mayer Signature Stratocaster and you’ll know you’re playing a modern blues-rock tone machine!
You’ll enjoy professional quality sound from a beautiful axe with the Fender Artist Series John Mayer Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The C-shaped maple neck sports a satin finish and African rosewood fretboard with big Dunlop 6105 frets for a super-comfortable, fast feel you can really dig into. Buffed headstock and vintage ’50s decal combine with 3-ply brown shell pickguard and vintage finishes for a fabulous look. Alder body sports an American vintage synchronized tremolo with five springs. The string tree is slightly closer to the nut, just the way John likes it.
