the_nong - bro try mo ebay for big dippers. alam ko may nagkakarne ng mayers strat eh. serious

tim - I also have lace sensors (gold) on my strat. ok naman. I like how clean it is (no hum) but it doesn't give me that quack I'm after. it's nice and all but the tone isn't there for me at least. better try one for yourself first before diving in. Sabi naman nila it's more of the classic 50s or 60s strat yata na more chime etc. so ayun  :-D

Dami palang fans ni JM.  By the way, sino nakakaalam dito ng story behind the guitar he uses for Grammy, yung beat up strat?

the sunburst? maganda un. search mo "abbey road john mayer" sa youtube.com. makita mo gamitin nya. i think that strat is from fender's custom shop and pina-relic nya. ganda talaga. if i'm not mistaken, yan ung guitar na nasa avatar ni the_nong. anyway i think that strat is his favorite. Eto at ung monterey stratocaster nya na ginamit sa music video ng "who did you think i was". my God nangangarap din ako ng monterey stray. there were only 210 made on this earth.....

tim_cada:
lace sensors? i think maganda din yan. ang alam ko gumagamit din si Johnny Greenwood(radiohead) ng LS. but i have yet to try the real thing. i think i remember inofferan ako ng LS sa Yupangco dati. 3k ata.. anyway if di ako makahanap ng big dips, mag tex special muna, at kung wala din, texmex nalang siguro(jimmy vaughn) if swertehin, or kung di maapord o wala talaga, papatandain ko nalang ang stock pickups ko to get it extra mature and thick kasama na din sa pagsettle ng wood para warmer.

if you want to hear what tex mex's or texas specials or even big dippers sound like, search mo sa youtube. there are ton of people that record themselves playing with vintage guitars outfitted with special pickups(maganda din ung mga custon reverse wound...waaaaaaaaah). or you can listen to john mayer's "man on the side"! gandang crystal clear bouncy quack tone.

i originally wanted a john mayer sig strat, but it wasn't available when i traded my PRS at guitar center.

i got a different strat, which i am really happy with...

dream strat would be a fender custom shop relic, with big dipper pups from the john mayer sig.... :lol:

i have been informed by my boss that it's gonna cost $3-4k....no joke! damn i wish i have a higher paying job! :-D

but IMHO the tone JM has might not be original, but it's still badass!
guitarist telling the drummer what the intro to laklak was. caught on video.at binilangan pa ang drummer 1-2...1-2-3..lol

I'm a big John Mayer fan. I love him as a guitar player and a composer, lalong lalo na continuum. The best. Siya ang dahilan ba't ako nakastrat at bakit nagshift na ko ng gustong pag-aralan na music. Hehe!

Narinig niyo na ba yung acoustic versions nung mga songs sa Continuum. Astig talaga!. Village Sessions ata yun!

I always wanted to start a thread about my favorite guitar player and probably favorite musician. If my sister never bought Any Given Thursday and Room for Squares, i would have never learned to play guitar. And even when he made Heavier things, i still went on to play his songs. Lalo na nung lumabas ang Continuum, where he showed another kind of "heavy" with his sound evolving further. And when he released "TRY!" with Pino Paladino and Steve Jordan, he introduced me to blues. Masyado na siyang madaming nagawa para sakin. In terms of style, he has influenced me and in terms of genre, he opened me to new sounds. Dati puro ROCK lang ang tugtugan ko ngayon mas lumawak. Jazz nalang di ko pa naeexplore pero masyado pang madameng kelangan matutunan sa Blues so i'll venture into jazz after i graduate nalang.

This is my side. I idolize John Mayer. I think he'd go very far in the blues-rock world and he'd grow old to be a legend like Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix or Jeff Beck(hehehe puro strat player noh?). Pero I want to hear your side my fellow forumites. Pabor ba kayo sakanya? do you like him? do you hate him or call him "baduy"? do you think he's lame or he sucks? sige na tell me. i'm so friggin' curious lang. hehehehhe ok lang kahet i-bash nyo siya. you have your opinion and i have mine. :-D

+1million! hehehe im a big fan as well!!  :mrgreen: city love kicks ass! hehehe

ooh ooh ooh...

tagal kong di nakadalaw sa forums...meron na palang thread na ganito!

alright alright!  :evil:

i'm a big fan. ever since room for squares. and i really love how he's grown as a musician. and the fact that he's really enthusiastic about blues makes me love his work even more.  :mrgreen:

watched his performance at crossroads 2007. loved the arrangement of belief and gravity.  :-o

you should see/hear his rare recordings & rehersals! simple yet superb solos!
definitely blues-blooded! great to know that there is still a blues frontman with his guitar on stage.

BTW, does JM still use his dumble?  :?
saan nangagaling clean tone niya, slight OD tsaka lead tone niya?

my guess would be sa two rock yung clean tapos lead comes from the dumble? paano naman yung slight overdriven tones niya? clean plus boost?

hehehe buti nalang madami nagreply ulet. kala ko namanatay na ung thread na ito. buti madame pang suporter si JM. tara usap pa tayo bout him.

paiba iba ata. kasi i was reading his blogs dati nung di pa niya binura, he doesnt always bring his dumbles tulad ng pag nasa david letterman siya. swertihan lang daw un if they get to rent real good fender tube amps na vintage. i know ung pedal board niya palage nya dala with his TS808( or ts9 ata), modded BD2, DD-6 at ung wah nya that he uses for "i don't trust myself with loving you" waaaaaaah gandang timpla.

i also read that dati nung bandang early '07 nagstart din siya magtinker with DIY pedals. nagpost siya ng pics sa blog niya and halos ala 'papa bear' ang itsura. striped down with weird angled knobs. para saken mas profesional ang itsura nun. i think i remember he made a delay and a chorus pedal ata. and he even wrote na "its not fun to touch the tip of a soldering iron". di pa siya siguro sanay...:)

The_nong:
EB? oki sige in ako. malapet lang bahay namen kina Sir Nong. i know mabait naman siya at di siya mahirap kasama unlike what they said sa newbie thread na un...

anyway sige sir nong if makahanap kayo, pm me...
