Marking the first time Fender Custom Shop has built a replica of one of their own instruments, the Limited Edition (only 83 pieces) John Mayer Black1 Stratocaster is upon us.  John’s love for Stevie Ray Vaughn’s playing and guitars is well-documented (on his arm, even) and in our eyes this guitar is a testament to the kind of beat up road warrior Strat that SRV would have played.  This is an artist guitar you won’t be afraid to lean against your amp.  Fender’s specs after the jump.
