FDP Forum / Fender Custom Shop / John Mayer Rosewood Strat


United States

Feb 11th, 2015 10:59 AM   Edit   Profile  

Sorry if this has been discussed ad nausum but was curious about the specifics of the all-rosewood strat that was built for John Mayer by Jason Smith?

Solid/Chambered? East Indian or Brazilian (other) rosewood? Type of pickups?

Always thought a rosewood strat would be cool since learning about the George Harrison tele, then of course hearing about the strat intended for Hendrix. John Mayer fan too, so curious about the rosewood strat.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't know. I think there are still more available than that. Unfortunately don't have that kind of cash to throw around. Still more curious about the build itself.

Not even sure if anyone knows if the Hendrix strat and Harrison tele were Brazilian or not. Maybe? I know Phil Kubicki built the Harrison one.
