    Nothing that celebrities, who seem to spend ALOT of time on social media, do is 100% from their heart. If you're hearing the news (in this case, that John gave someone a guitar), it's because that was one of the expected results of the action. NOTHING that JM does (and really any 21st century celebrity for that matter) is done without thinking about JM.

    I suppose people think that all these people that demo gear on YT are doing it for fun and they want to help other musicians.
    I suppose people think that celebrities who tweet out condolences to the world are doing it because they are nice.
    I suppose all those bands that do an on stage cover of a recently deceased musicians music (only to have a video go viral within a few days) are only concerned with paying respect.
    It's social media and it's how the world works these days.

    Call me a cynic. But I'm glad the guitar went to Tomo, rather than Kim Kardashian.

    (Can I get some "likes"?)

    Anyway - sorry for the derail

    I will sell you mine for half price after I get it. You will just have to be patient, though.

    JM studied with Tomo at Berklee and credits him quite a bit. As well as comes back from time to time to do clinic with Tomo.

    He also sent Tomo a fender sig. they’re friends and Tomo was important to his playing growth.

    Not everything needs an agenda

    Shouldn’t the title to this be: “John Mayer Getting Rid of His Silver Skys”?

    I came into this thread with a smile on my face. I thought this was a nice gesture by John and a cool gift for Tomo. I’m leaving with a frown caused by the cynicism. Great job TGP.

    Knock it off. Tomo's guitar isn't on ebay and the trolling isn't necessary or appreciated.

    There are no absolutes in life. I suspect you know neither Mayer or Tomo Fujita personally. Unless one of them told you what you claim, all you are going on is the cynicism you mentioned in your post. There is a history between the two, which has been mentioned several times in this thread. Sometimes people are just nice, and have no agenda other than being kind to a friend.
