How can I get John Mayers overdriven, kinda fuzzy lead tone circa 06-08. Pedal wise, and amp. Pedal specifically.

depends on the song. he uses all of those at different times. if you have a good tube amp with nice cleans and a tubescreamer then you should be able to get a reasonably close. keep in mind that john does use some pretty expensive gear so you probably won't be able to nail it perfectly.
