Mustang Monday Signature Series #2 – John Mayer Trio
This installment of Mustang Monday features some of my favorite John Mayer Trio tone from the “live” album called “Try”. I put live in quotation marks because there was loads of overdubs and post production but that aside the album does rock and is one of my favorites. The tone I have used to build this preset is the Fender Stratocaster tone from the song Vultures. If you scroll right to the end of the song you’ll hear John jamming out on his own. This is what I have used for reference. Make sure you switch to the bridge and middle pickup combination to really get the quack and glassy attack happening.
Below is a video featuring the song I used as reference. The Stratocaster tone at the start is nice and mellow and then it thickens out a little for solo tones.
I also added some delay which I think sounds a little nicer than the delay in the tune. You can modify the delay to meet your own tastes.
Please share this video with any Fender Mustang friends you have. I recorded this one on the Mustang III.
