Which amp you playing through and what currency?


+ do you want a trem? what neck profile do you prefer? number of frets? maple tops?natural finishes or burst finishes or just plain finishes? what body style,single cut or double cut etc. etc.

smooth body style,


ok,but what do you mean when you say smooth?an LP shape or a strat shape or a carved top?

and since you also play some metallica I am thinking 24 frets,

so from the guitars I have played the ibanez S series has the smoothest and the thinnest body,but every single of them have trems
#12
when i say smooth body i mean no dean razerbacks, or any of that nonsense. and even though i'm playing some metallica i would probably still prefer 22 frets just because of the majority of things i play aren't that heavy. So yeah that and a thin neck.

Fender Telecaster would fit you perfect. Will clean up nicely for john mayer, and still be able to rock out to metallica. Much better than a strat as far as that versatility goes imo.

I most probably would..after a long and hard decision

Even if the American Strat is out of the pricerange, I've heard good things about the Highway One's. Tele or Strat. Just sayin' if for some reason the budget can't stretch there's always that possibility and that way if the pickups don't suit him he's got $50 or so left to get new ones.

You're the only one who knows whats good for your music. I would, but I dont play alot of heavy stuff, just a bit here and there. If I were I'd spend some time playing both and listening to both and then decide from there. I'm a firm believer that any style can be played on any guitar if the guitarist wants to. Sometimes it just requires a bit more... effort.

A highway one HSS Strat will be fine for John Mayer and some lighter stuff, but the humbucker in the bridge isn't all that great for heavy tones. It might be able to manage Metallica, depending on the era of Metallica you're talking about.
#25
well again, if he gets the highway one he should have some cash left over to swap out that humbucker if he needs to.

I'd say it really depends on how much heavier stuff we're talking about here.
