Fender John Mayer Black 1 Stratocaster, Limited Edition 2010

John Mayer Special Edition BLACK1 Stratocaster - John Mayer's black Stratocaster guitar has been his go-to instrument for years. He has relied on it for countless recording sessions and performances, and he affectionately calls it the "BLACK1." In collaboration with John, Fender is offered a collectible, 500-piece special edition of this guitar worldwide.

John implored everyone to "make their own trouble on it" and, through their own musical experiences, to give it the same kind of extreme wear and battle scars that his personal guitar bears.

The John Mayer Special Edition BLACK1 Stratocaster shares features with his 2005 signature model; notably, a slightly oversized "C"-shaped neck and "Big Dipper" single-coil pickups wound to John's exacting specifications. Upgraded BLACK1 features include gold hardware and a model-exclusive, super-protective Incase gig bag. Designed in collaboration with John, the gig bag can be customized using its modular accessory compartments and patch set (included).
