It looks like a relic, but plays like gold. It was designed, ground wired, sanded, painted, sanded again and finished by John Mayer himself at the Fender Custom Shop. Only 83 of these exist in the world. The body's been stripped to absorb more sound and resonate it longer and...breathe really. Big dipper pickups, gold plates, rosewood, pearl tuning heads...drool. It doesn't get better than this for a nice soulful stratocaster.

John Mayer - Free Fallin' (LIVE cover)  This is what good music is all about: pure vocals and acoustic guitar.  One of the best covers I've ever heard, brings me to tears. Gorgeous.

John Mayer - Free Fallin' (Live at the Nokia Theatre); not as epic (and perfect) as the original (Tom Petty), but Mayer has a soulful voice and does the song justice.

John Mayer!!!!! His song Gravity is by far one of the best in recent years.

So he's gotten a little strange over the years but in the past he's sounded intelligent in interviews and you can't deny he knows a thing or two about playing a guitar.
