Your Chance to Play John Mayer's Signature Axe!The old-school blues guitar gets a new voice! Pick up the John Mayer Signature Stratocaster® and you immediately know you're holding a very special Strat®. This is no off-the-shelf instrument with a signature attached; the John Mayer Strat® is 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 the John Mayer Signature Stratocaster and you know you're playing a modern blues-rock tone machine!
Fender John Mayer Signature Stratocaster Unique Features:
Fender John Mayer Signature Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
You could easily make the case that FENDER® electric guitars were responsible - at least in great part - for the birth of modern rock 'n' roll. Originally designed to be easier to build, and thus more affordable, Leo Fender's masterpieces, which include classics like the Stratocaster (is there a more distinctive guitar shape in the world?), the Telecaster® and the original Precision Bass®, were at the core of a musical revolution that spawned everything from surf to country to punk!
In the 1960s, when Fender guitars first hit bandstands and stages all around the country, it was astonishing to see that trademark Fender maple neck and fingerboard. Though the company eventually offered rosewood fingerboards as standard or optional on its entire line of instruments, those first"blond" necks really shook things up. Others have picked up on the maple neck theme, but it's clearly yet another of Leo Fender's "firsts."
Today, no other manufacturer can match Fender for the sheer number of options available throughout its entire line. While vintage Fenders can command astronomic prices, the company now has the widest range of quality instruments in the world, along with the highest profile players like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, all of whom are legendary.

Excellent Sounding & Playing Strat!
by Tadd from Central ILI've had this strat for about a month now. It's currently strat #4 and I think it's the 6th I've ever owned.

If I had to compared this strat to another model, I suppose I'd say it's li... read more [+]ke a '62 RI. Old school looking headstock and logo, RW fretboard with a C shape, truss adjustment at the heel, and 3 tone SB finish. Vintage trem and tuners, 21 frets. It has a very vintage feel to it, except the medium jumbo's, the 5-way switch, and the modern radius. It came setup very well from the factory, save the blocked trem. I floated it right away.
Anyway, it plays just like you'd expect to for an instrument of this expense and quality. Fret dressings and edges are pretty good. Finish looks very nice.
However, I think the most noteworthy feature of this axe is its pickups. They're very glassy and shimmery but it's not shrill either. It's got great quack in positions 2 & 4 and the bridge pickup isn't overly obnoxious like some strats are. Note that Tone #2 is wired to the Br and Mid pickups. My bottom line is that this thing sounds just like a classic strat is supposed to.
As for the deal, it's hard for me to say that this strat is worth it's price tag. However, when I compare it to the other strats that are out there for this price, I think it far exceeds them. I guess I'm saying that compared to the other strats in this price range new, it's got to by far be my favorite. I'm not sure that it's a bargain, but if you're looking for a strat and can afford this one, you need to check one out. close [-]
