Was running through an AMS catalog today and I noticed that the John Mayer strat was $1600. That's only $100 less than the SRV or the Yngwie model. I'm neither a fan nor a hater of Mayer, and have heard that he is a really good player. Saw him on Crossroads with Keith Urban, and he played well but it didn't really speak to me. But that's not what I am curious about. From my experience, the fans of his that I have met are all women or girls (who don't play music), who like his songs and likely think he's cute. I've never met a real guitar player who has sung his praises. So who is the target audience for this guitar? Is there a whole bunch of well-heeled guitar slingers who want his signature model? He has a pricey Martin sig model too. I'm just scratching my head here. Like the Susanna Hoffs Ric. Huh?
