John Mayer’s 1977 Gibson L-5

This guitar was most famously used on ‘Where The Light Is’ DVD, mostly just on the footage recorded of John playing outside on Mulholland Drive. From then on, the L-5 was seen occasionally on John’s social media profiles and it was used very rarely on any of the live gigs. One instance where the guitar was seen live was at the David Letterman show in 2008, where John played a cover of Frank Sinatra’s ‘In The Wee Small Hours’.

John’s L-5 is a 1977 model [John Mayer – Jones Beach Back Stage Tour], and it features a rounded cutaway – a design change from the pointed cutaway that was introduced in the late 60s. It is a hollow body guitar with a solid spruce top with maple back and sides, five-piece maple neck, and two humbucking pickups.
