Getting to grips with John Mayer's latest signature model guitar
Acoustic dreams: The latest signature model of a 21st-century Hendrix
Although John Mayer’s rep may have been somewhat sullied by the stain of tabloid notoriety, it’s impossible to dismiss his abilities as a guitarist. Be it electric or acoustic, pop, rock or blues, he’s one of the best players in the Hendrix mould to have come to the fore in many a year.
His fourth collaboration with the renowned and respected Martin Guitars is the 00-42SC John Mayer Stagecoach Edition, and, as is the case with the majority of Martins, has a history that goes back to the very roots of American music. Believe it or not, the first Style 42 Martins were produced in 1898, and Mayer’s version has the suffix ‘SC’, for Stagecoach.
