    Who gives a ****************? How many people on HC have relic'ed guitars and never take them out of their bedrooms? At least Mayer does something with his. (Although I can't forgive him for the crappy way he plays "Panama.")

    If they can give John 5 a signature Tele, they can give John Mayer a signature Strat.


    Its not about having a signature guitar. Thats fine. Its just the way he talks it up like its some 40 year old vintage guitar that hes been playing forever that has all this mojo. "People are just like, wow! thats it!" And theres nothing wrong with relics, but at least admit that you want the guitar to look old and well played. Hes like, "oh its just for the tone" Hes just so full of crap. Its obviously reliced. Its not like they just scraped alot of paint off, they made it look like it was worn off from playing. Hes says he just wanted a guitar to serve him as an artist, just a tool in other words. Thats bull****************. He wants everyone to know about this guitar. He wants to have his "Blackie". Guitars need to earn their fame. They cant be famous and special just because you say they are.

      When I listen to his music, I feel like I'm hearing the very essence of the blues.

      If you read his biography, you can see that Mayer pulls a lot of the expression and feeling in his music from his troubled past. That's a deep wellspring of angst that makes his blues so much more authentic. I feel like everyone is influenced by Mayer now, even the old guard like Buddy Guy and Clapton. He's changed the genre forever.

        yeah, I watched part of that yesterday when someone was talking about the JM sig strat. i wondered what was unique about it. I turned it off when he said that when the custom shop delivered the guitar it sounded like ****************, so he put it in the freezer overnight and it sounded great. That dude must smoke alot of weed.

        You do realize that in that part of the video he mentions it still sounding like **************** until they discovered the ground wire not correctly soldered, right?

          We live in a marketing world.

          Fender is a marketing company.

          John Mayer is a marketable product.

          The fact that he is actually a good guitar player seems secondary in this marketing world and in this thread.


          Ritchie Blackmore has been described as "difficult" but that does not stop people from listening to and enjoying his guitar playing. Why should Mayer be treated any different?

              Prophets are inevitable despised in their native lands. HCEG is the Land of the Fender Strat, Mayer is the reigning Master of the Stratocaster, therefore he's hated.

                  I think many people miss the sarcasm with him. He's a funny guy and I don't think he takes himself as seriously as many think he does. I think much of the stuff like sticking the guitar in the freezer and getting the finish stripped off is just him goofing around. Probably his way of trolling all of the internet bedroom playing haters.

                    Mayer is great..I'm not big on modern electric blues, but that guy has nailed it. I don't have a problem with him having a signature Strat or that he refer's to it as legendary, he's earned it.

                          ... Can some one post evidence of this "great modern electric blues" I keep hearing about? All I've heard is sappy love songs for the radio. If there is truly something of worth in his catalog, I'd like to check it out.

                                I think treating the intense personal hardships that John endured so lightly shows a lack of basic human decency.
