FENDER ERIC JOHNSON STRATOCASTER
The long-awaited Eric Johnson Stratocaster guitar arose from Johnson’s express wish to give something back to the collectors, players and fans who’ve supported him throughout his career.
Designed by Johnson himself with his own personal features and preferences, this signature model has a highly contoured two-piece alder body with a very thin nitrocellulous lacquer finish. The one-piece quarter-sawn maple neck has a V-shaped profile, 12” fingerboard radius and 21 polished frets. The staggered vintage-style machine heads eliminate the need for a string tree, and the custom pickups are wound to Johnson’s specs. Other features include a parchment ’57-style pickguard, four-spring vintage tremolo, silver-painted block and ’57-style string recess with no paint between the base plate and the block.
