Great deals on musical instruments

Musician John Mayer has been praised for his excellent performance with the electric guitar in a review of one of his recent gigs.

In a two-hour performance in London, Mayer performed tracks from his new album Battle Studies in a set list that also included a cover of Jackson Five's I Want You Back.

His show was described as containing "pure guitar brilliance" by the Mirror, with the reviewer comparing his guitar lines to those often used by U2.

Mayer himself seemed to enjoy the performance, thanking the crowd for their reaction after performing acoustic guitar track Why Georgia.

"This is why we got on an aeroplane," he said on behalf of his band.

Last year, it was announced that Mayer was teaming up with Fender to create two signature electric guitars.

He said at the time that he wanted to recreate his favourite Fender Stratocaster in the designs of the new instrument.
