Gutting. Was it painfully spendy?

I went down the John Mayer tone chasing path..was an expensive one...Got the Fender John Mayer Sig, Martin OMJM, Two Rock Studio Pro, Marshall Bluesbreaker mark 1 pedal, Ibanez TS-10, Keeley Modded Blues Driver and Boost, Way Huge Delay......There, I feel better for that confession...
Have 2 friends with Martin OMJM's. One is very nice, the other is superb. Both of them chew up and spit out every Clapton 000-28 I've ever met.
Yes, I know they're different. I'm just surprised how different.
It's funny you say that, as last time I went to the States I brought back a Clapton 000-28 which sounded amazing over there in the shop. When I got back to NZ and A/B'd it with my OMJM, the Clapton has sat in it's case ever since...I prefer the longer scale of the OMJM, which gives it more snap, and the neck is a perfect fit for me.
I wonder if scale length is the key? Where can I get a dozen each 000s and OMs in the same room? :think:

Mighty fine guitarist. Can not listen to him talk though. I got the Where The Light Is DVD when it came out because I liked his playing, but the interviews really put me off him. I don't think I could buy gear with his name on it, no matter how good it sounded.
