John Mayer has an extensive guitar collection, it’s true, but his main guitar for years has been the Fender Stratocaster, in one variety or another. In fact, his first main guitar was a used SRV Signature Stratocaster that he purchased after saving enough money working at a gas station. That particular guitar went on to see many of his live performances, and was also the basis of his signature “Big Dipper” pickups (more on this in a minute).
In 2005, Fender introduced the John Mayer Signature Stratocaster, which is still in production to this day.
Grammy award winner John Mayer teamed with Fender to create his must-have signature instrument.
The John Mayer Stratocaster guitar features an alder body, satin urethane-finished maple neck with a slightly larger C shape, 9.5-radius African rosewood fingerboard with Dunlop 6105 frets, and buffed headstock with vintage-style 50s decal and string tree placed slightly farther from the nut.
Other features include three Big Dipper single-coil pickups with special scooped mid-range voicing wound to Mayers specs, American vintage synchronized tremolo with five springs and uninstalled back plate (included in case), and Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuners. Incase gig bag included.
