John Mayer

John Clayton Mayer is an American pop and blues rock musician, singer-songwriter, recording artist, and music producer. Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and raised in Fairfield, he attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. John Mayer's guitar tones can be closely emulated by plugging a Fender Stratocaster guitar into a Dumble or Fender style amp, and shaping the sound using the pedals found on this Equipment Board. We have tried to include the most notable guitars and amps John Mayer has used live and in his studio, but it has been documented that his guitar collection is over 200 guitars strong.
