Fender Eric Johnson Maple Stratocaster

Fender is pleased to announce the long-awaited Eric Johnson Signature Model Stratocaster guitar. The brainchild of Johnson himself, this model is designed with Eric's own personal features and preferences, and it is made possible because of his expressed desire to give something back to the collectors, players and, especially, the fans who have supported him throughout his career.

The Eric Johnson Signature Model Fender Stratocaster guitar is built from some of the finest materials available. The light 2-piece alder body is dressed in a very thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and the 1-piece quarter-sawn maple neck sports a 12-inch fingerboard radius, 21 highly polished frets, and a soft "V" neck profile.

Additional features include staggered vintage-style machine heads, thus eliminating the need for a string tree; custom pickups with countersink screws and wound to Eric's specifications; and highly contoured body and neck.

It comes with a parchment '57-style pickguard, 5-Way Switch, Master Volume, Neck Tone and Bridge Tone controls, and a Vintage Tremolo with 4 tremolo springs, silver painted block and '57-style string recess with no paint between base plate and the block.

"Best guitar i've played in 40 years..."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I own 7 electric guitars and this guitar has become my favorite guitar in only one month. I own other guitars that are valued 3 times what I paid for this guitar. I am grateful the salesman asked me if I had tried this guitar. I wholeheartedly recommend this guitar.
Every model of guitar has its own unique sound. A good guitarist can make an average guitar sound good. To create oustanding music you need a quality precision instrument. This guitar makes an average guitarist sound great and a good guitarist create perfection.
Genuine Fender Hard Case with keys, Fender Mist and Wipe Finish Enhancer, Fender Strap,and Polish Cloth are included.
Ease of Use
I have played the guitar for over 40 years and have found some guitar necks to be too thick with extremely wide frets making it difficult to reach 7 frets on some bar chords. This is not the case with the Eric Johson Model Strat'.
This is a quality crafted precision musical instrument. It is well worth the $2,000 I spent to buy mine.
If this guitar was $3,500 I would still buy it.
