John Mayer custom shop

 "There's something about a smaller-bodied acoustic guitar that has always appealed to me. In one glance it inspires me to write, travel, perform, and age along with it," said John Mayer. "Not very long ago I was inspired to return to a completely natural way of writing and recording music, and at the center of that vision were the Martin 00-sized guitars that defined an era of brilliant songwriting in the '60s and '70s. The 00-45SC John Mayer Edition is my vision of the ultimate 00-45 come to life. It's simply perfect."

 
"There is no better ambassador for our custom guitars than John Mayer," said Chris Martin, Chairman and CEO, C.F. Martin & Co. "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate with such a singular talent on such a unique instrument."
 
Based upon requested 12-fret 00 specifications and design concepts from the artist himself, the 00-45SC John Mayer custom shop is constructed with back, sides and head plate of select premium quality cocobolo wood, a strikingly beautiful member of the genuine rosewood species prized for its' rich reddish-orange and black grain striations. The soundboard is book matched from Martin's highest grade of Adirondack spruce, prized for crystalline clarity and powerful projection. The slotted tapered headstock with hand-squared slots is equipped with premium Waverly Sloane bronze engraved side-mount tuning machines with ivoroid buttons. Style 45 vintage appointments are executed in rare richly-colored blue paua shell, with delicate snowflake fingerboard position markers. The tastefully ornate 1902 alternate torch design graces the headstock, also executed in blue paua.
