For the last 3 or 4 months I've been saving for an acoustic guitar. It was my plan to go and buy it today. The thing is, the John Mayer Black1 strat is going to be released soon and its about the same amount as the acoustic I was looking it. There's only 500 of the JM strats so I don't know if I should buy it now, or just stick to my original plan. After buying the acoustic, I was going to save up for a much needed amp. Should I spring for the JM strat next or what? Thanks

"should i buy an overpriced strat with john mayers name on it that plays or feels no different besides the price tag and the fact that it is a signature guitar?"

No.

No.

So funny! You know what's even funnier? I'm buying the lower end version of the custom shop one! It's only $1200 and it sounds practically the same!

No.

Not just that, anyone brandishing a strat with John Mayer's name on it is immediately given sex god status. Just sayin'.

In other words, like just about every other strat going?

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

The John Mayer guitar tone does not have good value. Get a custom shop or American Standard or Deluxe.

Playing John Mayers songs got me laid.I don't like owning signature instruments though.
If you could reason with religious people,there would be no religious people.

don't buy it and save for an amp, ou won't be satisfied with it. its just a standard strat pretty much, and even the cheap version is still expensive for what it is. save your money and buy a kickass amp

Even if you do buy his guitar John Mayer is probably not going to have sex with you.

To go the opposite way. I think it's a pretty cool guitar.
It shouldn't really be too different from any other Fender strat, and it will be pretty overpriced, but if you dig John Mayer's tone and the looks of the guitar, I'd say go for it.
I think the black one is much better than the regular Mayer sig, opinion-wise, so yeah. Go for it if you want.
