    John Mayer hit the annual NAMM convention this past weekend to introduce his new custom guitar with Martin and to explain how it pertains to his new album.

    The talkative singer said the custom guitar's sound actually helped create the musical foundation for his new record, which he described as "organic cowboy guitar sounds."

    "What would it sound like if I wrote an album of cowboy songs on this guitar under the stars?" he said. "Every new record I start, a new aesthetic comes in. I can't help it."

    The release date for new John Mayer is not known.

    Are you psyched to hear John Mayer's "organic cowboy guitar sounds?"
