Well, let's see how far the price inflation goes on eBay.
Queue the mad rush for those big dipper pickups, too.

Well let's hope they keep the big dippers and start selling them seperately. That would be the ideal thing to do.

Why fork out for the Big Dippers when they're just mid-boosted Fat 50's. Get those and a TBX and you'll have the sound

As much as I like and respect John Mayer for his work in John Mayer Trio (as far as his solo work goes, I pretty much don't give a $#!t), that Tweet reads like something that came out of the head of a pissed-off preteen drama queen on a bad breakup.

"Dipper" refers to the mid scoop those pickups have. Point stands, though - they're not terribly far off from any number of more readily available pickups.

Didn't know that. Maybe that mid swoosh he has comes from the Two Rocks.

Minarik?

I thought I posted this in the Strat thread, huh.

I thought about getting Big Dipper pickups (I think you even responded to me in the Strat thread), but yeah, that kind of money needn't be spent when there's a market that tries to recreate that sound. It can be replicated with a plain old vintage-sound Strat pickup and an EQ in the chain. Klein's Jazzy Cats or S-5 even has samples that are from JM tracks, if you're so inclined to have that sound coming from the pickup.

From what I can hear and have gleamed from his Rig Rundown, the mids are scooped even more so.

Then again, he's got like a hundred Strats and loads of other guitars. Lately, I hear his sound isn't as scooped as he's strayed away from his signature Strat/Black One. In his "All Along the Watchtower" cover, I think he was playing a Clapton Strat, which has mids and then some more to spare.

I may be a Mayer enthusiast, but I'm willing to fault him when he's wrong (the man used to talk some bullshit). Where do you even see any hint of anything like that? He's just saying facts, it's detached from any sort of emotion.

I'd see Deusenberg do it, to be honest. He has been playing them a lot both live and in studio and they could use him as a marketing tool. Great guitars, also.

Duesenbergs ARE great, but they already have a pretty good stable of artists, so I'm not sure they NEED him, per se. Of course, adding another famous face to the stable can't hurt, either.

Well, they're not as popular as their quality deserves, in my opinion. Bringing in a guitar gear freak like Mayer who's also a well-loved guitar player might be a strong move commercially.

Wouldn't say no to that. Pickup covers are fugly but the color makes up for it.

Stay tuned -- this announcement would not have been made if there weren't already another endorsement deal signed.

It's the equivalent of putting the Avengers movie on cable *just* before the premiere of Avengers II.


Wait for it.....wait for iiiiiiitttt....
