John Mayer had over 3.7 million twitter followers when he abandoned the tweet game to switch to Tumblr full time.
“I now have an even larger Tumblr addiction but it’s sort of like a book addiction, or a gambling addiction where you always walk away with the casino’s money… it’s one of those things you do all the time but isn’t all that bad for you,” Mayer posted.
But according to Rolling Stone, Mayer quit Twitter because “a return to the studio is planned.”
Mayer also recently thanked, via Tumblr, his fans for coming out to his Battle Studies tour, which wrapped in West Palm Beach, Fla. last weekend.
“Thank you all so much for making the Battle Studies tour such a huge success and a pleasure,” he wrote. “I’m going to miss seeing your faces every night.”
Mayer finished the thank you note by saying it is “Time to (try to) disappear for a while.”
In the meantime, we are ecstatic to have finally confirmed the John Mayer Special Edition BLACK1 Stratocaster. We have received a steady stream of tweets, facebook posts and blog comments over the last several months asking about this particular guitar and now have all the details for you here.
