John Mayer’s 2000s Fender Stratocaster Custom Shop (Charcoal Frost Metallic)

John first appeared with this guitar sometime after the release of Heavier Things album, circa late 2003. The guitar was likely a Fender Custom Shop master-built and served the purpose of a back-up guitar for the upcoming tour.

If you happen to come across an interview where John mentioned these early Strats with stripe design, please be sure to get in touch. While the specs on the post-2004 models are relatively known, since they were based on John’s Artist series, these early guitars are pretty much still a mystery.
