Well, all three of them use Strats, which produce that quacky tone.

Well, if I was in your position, I'd look for a tube amp, preferably a Fender (don't be afraid to look at used stuff), but if not a Fender, something with that vintage clean voicing, so Traynor, Crate Palomino, Peavey Classic 30, something along those lines.

You'll probably want a Tubescreamer or some overdrive pedal. Other than that, it's hard to piece together all the effects that Mayer uses. He's got an infinite number of amps to draw from as well as effects.

i agree with dirk, something like a blues junior and a strat is probably your best option- though your best bet is to try your current guitar through that amp- with any luck, that might get you close enough.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
