The guitar from the cover of Room for Squares is a Novax Expression Solidbody 6 guitar with fanned frets \(for multiscale purposes along different strings\) and is the guitar which Mayer plays on Neon. Neon is the only song from the album that Mayer used this guitar for and he has the guitar tuned uniquely with the low E string dropped to C \(i.e. CADGBe or standard tuning with a low C\). The style employed by Mayer for the piece is noted for the strumming hand only using the thumb and index finger. Whilst performing the song live Mayer is known to play a lengthy introduction before beginning the song.
