On Monday, I bought the John Mayer strat in Sunburst finish. I liked the specs on it so decided to try it out and take it home. 9.5" radius Big Dipper pickups (only on JM strat) Vintage trem, pulled down to body with 5 strings Somewhat beefy neck, but not SRV size Very dark African rosewood board The action was initially very very high, but I've now got it down to a much more manageable level. I've heard this comment from others as well. Played it at rehearsal last night through Dr Z MAZ 18 Jnr 2x10. I LOVE it. All the positions sound great. The pups sound very SRV like, but without the darkness of Texas Specials. Flip to neck, turn on OD-808 and it is just an awesome blues tone. I think I finally found a strat that I can keep and enjoy. Can't wait to gig with it. Sounds just too good.
