May/June will be custom time apparently. I still need to discuss the finish and stuff though, as it's a bit up in the air at the moment. Oh, and hi, I'm still lurking a bit these days, haha!

I'll see if Matt does some crazy release for the next album and maybe jump on the bandwagon. My Manson knockoff and Cort will suffice for now

And yes, bought a JM strat. Love love those big dippers. Going to trade my current strat in at a local shop, so it's not a terrible net loss and 1000 USD less than a Manson. Bought from the US, not Singapore Videos with him playing with John Mayer Trio in his most recent tour put me over the edge. Dude has chops.

Just hate to pass up the exchange rates on a numbered guitar like the DR, but so be it. I have enough humbucker based guitars and only really one solid single coil guitar (which is the MiM strat I'm trading in). My Ibanez JEM has a real solid single coil in it, just not ideal for playing the blues.
No I think it's just 00 to 99. I'm intrigued by these single coils now...aren't they supposed to have 'scooped mids' or something? That must make them good for metal.

Hi Bs.

Good timing... I thought it was decided that you were going for gloss black, or has that changed?

I'd had in mind some kind of black burst finish but I don't really know what it would look like with the body wood, so I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing at the moment. Need to talk through the options with Tim and then see where I go from there, I think. Need to sort it out soon though, haha! I also might have a favour to ask at some point but I'm not sure yet.

Yeah, I believe they're vaguely based on SRV's but I don't remember... I read a piece on them at some point. Sets of them alone go for 300-400USD on ebay and reverb. They were only ever fitted in his signature guitars. It's an acquired taste and not for everyone, for sure.

Congrats! I've heard that the neck on them is quite huge.What color did you end up with? I'd love one of the racing stripe ones.

A favour you say?

And what was the body wood again? I have something that might be of help, but it's made of cherry from what I understand, so it'll look a bit different.

I would think SRV would have had stock pickups, but I really wouldn't know. Hopefully not like those SD Jimi Hendrix pickups.

The neck is chunkier, but not as bad as some of the 50s/60s reissues I've played. It's the sunburst with tortoise pickgaurd below. Sorry for not buying your guitar

Very nice! I love the tort/burst combo.
No worries, I still get to enjoy the stealth goodness

That thing looks massive on him.
So if that was on Wednesday then presumably that clip of them at Air Studios recording wasn't posted as soon as it was recorded. So how far in are they recording new shit?

Is the neck supposed to be based on a specific year, or is John Mayer's signature profile?

Obviously had it on his phone from months ago and never uploaded it. Looks like a new guitar though.

And we all know who to ask.



I still have not heard what favours Bs desires, but maybe he's not allowed to talk about them in public. Remember, it got him booted out of the public library last time...

Nah, I just might need something sending over if I can't find it available anywhere here. Nothing major, as long as you still don't mind? Think the plan for my custom is pretty much sorted now anyway, pending samples for the finish when the new booth is ready. Just have to wait a month or two now.

Excellent... as long as it's nothing massive. I hope this means I get to see it when I visit. Do you know what stage they're at with the woodwork?

Not sure TBH. My guess is it's a somewhat standard fender shape that he uses as well. It's a 9.5" C shape of I recall. I'm also 6'-4" so large necks don't bother me much.

9.5" would be the fretboard radius. I wouldn't think that would make a massive difference in the overall feel, at least compared to the size and shape of the back of the neck.

It's interesting though. Some companies will give you the exact spec of the neck, down to the thickness in thousandths of inches... but I can't say I'm too bothered about that. If you can't play before buying, how do you make a judgement on whether it's right for you or not, based on those numbers alone?
