You are looking at a Martin Custom 00-42SC John Mayer Acoustic Guitar, serial number 1668420. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase.

Among his other talents, including being a 7 time Grammy winning artist, John Mayer has proved himself to be quite gifted in the art of guitar design. Mayer has teamed up with Martin to create acoustic models that will appeal to any player, blending several of Martin's most sought-after acoustic guitar elements with contributions from a guitar player who is just as passionate about guitar design as the craftsman and staff at Martin. These successful collaborations resulted in various models including the OM-28JM, the OMJM and his most favored model, the original Stage Coach, the 00-45SC which incorporated one of the most intricate, distinctive and elegant details ever featured on an acoustic guitar. Because rosettes usually end at the neck, this limited edition 00-45SC featured a creative, one of a kind inlay at the end of the fingerboard that was artistically thought up by Mayer to complete the rosette and encircle the entire soundhole. The very limited number of these guitars were almost instantly sold out and made it into the hands of only 25 lucky guitarists/guitar enthusiasts. Mayer and Martin have come together again to give you another highly anticipated signature model, the 00-42SC John Mayer Acoustic, a premium yet more affordable and simplistic version of the coveted 00-45SC.

Holding true to the original design of its predecessor, the 00-42SC boasts that unique, remarkable Style 45+ Paua pearl top inlay and features gorgeous inlays along the fingerboard extension that seamlessly connect each end of the rosette, forming a perfect circle around the soundhole. The “CF” Martin” block letter headstock inlay and the Golden Era Style 42 custom snowflake fingerboard inlays also showcase the beautiful Blue Paua pearl.

The Grand Concert 00 12-fret body of the 00-42SC John Mayer is crafted from two of the highest quality, solid tonewoods, including a premium grade Sitka spruce top and dense cocobolo for the back and sides. The scalloped-braced Sitka Spruce facilitates warm, direct tones with a quick response while the beautiful cocobolo yields incredible power and sustain with a perplexing low end, an expansive mid-range and crystal clear trebles. Whether your strumming chords or finger picking, these two perfectly matched tonewoods are sure to give the 00-42SC a powerful voice with impeccable articulation, well-suited for either playing style. The genuine mahogany neck is carved into a modified V shape and features an ebony fingerboard, a square slotted headstock and diamond volute that are accentuated by the cocobolo headplate.

The perfect mixture of both classic and elegant appointments grace the 00-42SC, including fine black/maple/black wood fiber purfling accentuating the back, sides, endpiece and heelcap and grained ivoroid bound body, neck, headstock, endpiece and heelcap. Down the center of the 2-piece back is a stunning Style 45 purfling that's highlighted by thick black fiber borders. The 00-42SC also employs a bone nut and compensated bone saddle, engraved brass Waverly open-geared tuning machines with ivoroid buttons and a teardrop faux-tortoise Delmar pickguard to further cater to the classic styling and tone.

Each 00-42SC John Mayer Custom Signature Edition comes personally signed by Mayer himself (on the internal label) and comes fully protected by an embroidered Custom Shop 00 12-Fret hardshell case with silver hardware and a satin embroidered top overlay.
