John Mayer's playing is Phenomenal. But the guitar he is playing is PRS's attempt at making a stratocaster without obviously calling it a strat. But PRS is very similar to Gibson in terms of sound and mid-range. I just think for John's style of playing his tone was a lot better with a Stratocaster.
John and PRS came up with the perfect guitar for John. John is a completely masterful player and knows what he wants, and Paul Reed Smith just knows how to get it done perfectly and precisely to what the player envisions and hears in their head. Not easy at all, but PRS is just a Tonal Genius!!!
