John Mayer responds on the Silver Sky


Recommended Posts

I went in the video thinking I don’t like this guy or this guitar


I still don’t really like the guitar but I think I can respect John as a player and his decision to make this guitar. I’m not really in love with his style of playing, but I can’t help but notice that he can play effortlessly and never hit a bad note. Say what you will about his music, I know I’m not a fan, but I cant deny he is very talented and worthy of the admiration he receives

Having exhausted other manufacturers Mayer's RabsWood would have a fairly unique shape vaguely modelled (if we are nit-picking) on a LP Double-Cut body shape. It would have a 'bucker at the bridge and a P-90 at the neck; be crafted with a hand-selected Jacaranda 'board mated to a Douglas Fir neck, attached (long neck-tenon) to a Tulip-wood body with a book-matched Burr-Walnut RabsWood Copyrighted Edge-Carved-Top-Cap. Lastly it would be finished in a beautiful stained-wood finish and would play perfectly.


Mayer should be so lucky, Rabs!





Its like you are reading my mind or something :-k

I don't have a strong opinion one way or the other about the guitar. I probably lean more to "like it" than "dislike it". But I won't be buying one anytime soon.


As for JM, I don't see what so many people dislike about him. I don't read tabloids, so I have no idea about his personal life. If he dates a lot of hot chicks, I don't hold that against him.

Whenever I see him in interviews, and in this video, he comes off as very well spoken and professional IMO. He must have a sense of humor about himself, because he used to do funny sketches on the Chappelle Show. I recently saw him live with Dead and Company and he was amazing. I can only think of 2 of his solo songs, Wonderland and Waiting For the World To Change. And though I don't go out of my way to listen to them, I don't hate them.


But then, I don't hate Nickleback either. msp_biggrin.gif
