Slightly heftier satin neck and Big Dipper pickups with scooped mid.

You'll enjoy professional quality sound from a beautiful axe with the Fender Artist Series John Mayer Stratocaster Electric Guitar. The C-shaped maple neck sports a satin finish and African rosewood fretboard with big Dunlop 6105 frets for a super-comfortable, fast feel you can really dig into. Buffed headstock and vintage '50s decal combine with 3-ply brown shell pickguard and vintage finishes for a fabulous look. Alder body sports an American vintage synchronized tremolo with five springs. The string tree is slightly closer to the nut, just the way John likes it.

      Comments about Fender Artist Series John Mayer Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      A great strat that definitely has a Mayer thing going, but doesn't deviate much from the traditional strat sound.

      It has a really blusey and funky vibe, so you have to have that particular taste in music to get the best out of the guitar.

      This guitar is dreamy, the only thing I would prefer is the finish being in Nitro (for cosmetic reasons because it looks cool).

      Familiar, Yet Exciting.

      Comments about Fender Artist Series John Mayer Stratocaster Electric Guitar:

      What originally drew me to this guitar was that I found myself wishing that I could get an SRV signature Strat without the gold hardware (just a personal taste issue). The John Mayer Artist Series Strat has a great vintage vibe and shows a great deal of respect to tradition, while also adding a few subtle nuances that help it stand out from the crowd. I was somewhat apprehensive about the "scooped mids" pickups before playing it, but I found that the change was actually quite a pleasantry to my earhole. They lack a little of that "quacky" upper mid-range that I find a bit ear-piercing in the Texas Special pickups, but make no mistake- This is still pure vintage Stratocaster tone, through and through. Flawless finish, a nice thick neck, jumbo frets, and you could run it through a wood-chipper and it would come out in tune. It's at home playing just about any music, except the very heaviest of metal. I honestly have no complaints about mine.. I would suggest this guitar to anyone who knows that they want a good Stratocaster.
