John Mayer’s PRS NF3access_time First seen circa 2015
John used this guitar at Eric Clapton’s 70th Birthday Concert in May 2015. According to one of his recent Periscope streams, this is the first PRS guitar that he ever got his hands on.
This is the first PRS guitar that I played, and I went holy moly! I played that at the Clapton birthday show at the Madison Square Garden. [John Mayer on Periscope – Gear Talk]
Given that the guitar is stock, and not something that Paul Reed Smith custom-built for John, it featured Korina body, maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, controls for volume, tone and a 5-way switch. The pickups in it are the Narrowfields, which are sort of a cross between single coil and humbucker. It is interesting to note that John decided to use one of these pickups in his custom made PRS “Super Eagle” model, which became his main guitar by 2015.
