I bought a new John Mayer Strat today from Dave's Guitar Shop in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The limited production run model is Gold with a Racing Stripe with John's personalized unique gig bag. I never thought I would buy an Artist series guitar. The John Mayer Strat was pure heaven from the moment I picked it up. I hadn't even plugged in in yet! The thick neck profile emulated my original 1960's Strat refretted similar to the John Mayer model. Everything just sang! I have been a guitarist since 1966 and never buy on impulse, until now! I'm thrilled with my new instrument that pays tribute to an incredible talent like John Mayer.

I can't put into words how much I love this guitar! It is very versatile right out of the box. I have my .010 strings at about 8/64 of the 17th fret and wow! I never thought I would play with this type of action, but I love it! The pickups are a lot like the Texas specials but much cleaner, and that thick neck is just right. The smooth feel of the neck and the tone of the fretboard with the chunky C is incredible! Perfect guitar for anyone. You can play it soft amp slow or fast and heavy, it talks to you. If you have wanted one but you aren't sure about this model, look no further, this Strat absolutely will not let you down! Perfect for a beginner and excellent for a pro! Fender and Mayer made this Stratocaster a solid piece of musical art! In one word: awesome!

I have the luck to own one of this, 2005 series. First impression, great playability and tone. The big dipper pickups really make a difference, specially if you're looking for that JM bell like tone. But don't be wrong, it is versatile enough to give you enough kinds of tones and sounds. I will keep this one for sure.
Just one advice, whatever guitar you want to buy, please play it and try it first, it's important that you feel comfortable with the instrument.

I bought this guitar in 2008 and it's one of my favourites!
The tone and the feel of the neck, with narrow and quite high frets is great.
