Mayer's super sleek, famous black guitar has
been his go-to instrument for years. He has
been able to rely on it through countless
recording sessions and shows, and
affectionately refers to it as the "BLACK1". In collaboration with John, Fender is now offering a collectible, 500-piece special edition of this guitar worldwide. John implores everyone to "make their own trouble on it", and their own musical
experiences give it the same kind of extreme wear and battle scars that his personal guitar bears.

The John Mayer Special Edition
BLACK1 Stratocaster Electric Guitar shares features with his 2005 signature model; notably, a slightly oversized "C"-shaped neck and "Big Dipper" single-coil pickups wound to John's exacting specifications. As John specified, the back tremolo plate is not installed or included. Also the string tree is further from the nut and the headstock has a '50s spaghetti logo decal. Upgraded BLACK1 features include gold hardware and a model-exclusive, super-protective Incase® gig bag. Designed in collaboration with John, the gig bag can be customized using its modular accessory compartments and patch set (included).
