    So another incredibly boring color for the lineup. What's next? That "MIK dark blue"?

    comments #2 and #3 pretty much sum up this entire thread before it even gets going.

    I'd like to see it with a tortoise shell or darker guard, instead of the white

    I love the juxtaposition of the photo. Cheesy overpriced guitar on a homeless man's blanket.

    With a maple neck both the color and the headstock would look pretty good like Clapton.

    I'm gonna guess that's a Pendleton (since he's collaborated with them in the past) or something comparable, meaning fairly expensive. Hardly a juxtaposition - pretty much exactly what I'd expect based on the things John seems to be in to.

    Looks good. I would like to see Mary Kaye, maple fretboard, no gold.

    It doesn't look futuristic enough.

    I remember he went with those colors because he wanted to add a modern spin on a vintage style instrument. He mentioned tesla's color being an influence.

    I believe that is just a prototype of the original run, not a new color. At least, that's my understanding.

    That's a crazy lower cutaway for a Strat.

    .

    Oh he's got Rosewood again! Doesn't he read his own marketing?... Choosing and promoting rain forest lumber for signature guitars is in conflict with:

    "John Mayer’s brand, AKOG (Another Kind of Green) was created from the belief that small steps toward environmental sustainability can effect widespread change when multiplied by a great number of participants. AKOG has been present on Mayer’s tours since 2007." http://www.ecorazzi.com/2012/04/13/20-bands-that-care-about-the-environment/

    and

    "Mayer strives to be environmentally aware, and has partnered with Incase ... to produce items such as reusable grocery bags and water bottles...Mayer has supported the following charities...National Wildlife Federation..." https://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/john-mayer


    I suspect a few PRS employees are on this forum and should really suggest Mayer pursue alternative materials like Maple or even Roasted Maple and put forward a message of local lumber to support local forestry jobs and a more sustainable industry. If it's about 'tonewood' I bet he could step up his playing a little bit to compensate for any fears he may have.

    When is John going to put some of his blood into the color like Steve Vai did for this JEM a few years back.
    Then he can call it the Blood Red Sky model.

    You're welcome.
