Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster with Case

Item #: FEN 117702 LIST
Serial No.

Product Description

The Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Electric Guitar is the brainchild of Johnson himself.
The Eric Johnson guitar 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 nitro cellulous 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 strat I've owned
What is your opinion of this product?
This is one of the most musical sounding strats I've owned... I've owned may over the years. The neck is just perfect. I adore the rounded edges on the neck. The EJ strat is everything I was hoping for in a "chimey" way.

Amazing Stratocaster. Amazing guitar. Period.
What is your opinion of this product?
If you like a Strat with a chunky, firm neck, then you will probably like the EJ. I prefer a neck with some meat, and this fits the bill. It's no baseball bat, but it is a handful. Perfect out of the box. The pickups sound great through an Orange Thunderverb and a Top Hat Emplexador. Quality and finish are up there with my Gibson R8s. It's not just a great Strat. It is a great guitar.

Beautiful and fantastic sounding
What is your opinion of this product?
This is a wonderful guitar. I lucked out and found one that was only 7lbs. I love the fact that you can choose based off of serial #. The guitar sounds great through my Fender bassbreaker amp. The guitar looks wonderful with the tinted maple neck. Stays in tune and feels great with the soft v neck. This is a keeper.

Buy it now!!!!!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this guitar!!! I have owned many guitars. Mostly Strats and Les Pauls. This is without a doubt my all time favorite. I love the vintage contours and the tuners are amazing. Easiest guitar I've changed strings on. The neck fits my hand perfectly and the action is incredible. It almost plays itself. I love the unique tone set up (the tonal possibilities are almost endless). The pickups have that classic Strat tone I have always loved, only better. I especially like the fact that the bring pickup is extra hot. Great for solos. Last but not least, the nitrocellulose finish is absolutely stunning. Don't think, just buy it! You won't be disappointed.

perfect in every way!
What is your opinion of this product?
love this guitar! the finish is flawless. flamed maple neck looks gorgeous and fits my hand perfectly the 12" radius is very similar to My Gibson 63es335 reissue and the two guitars complement each other perfectly.I love the feel of the nitro lacquer finish, and the stickiness goes away very quickly. I can´t imagine the build quality and finish being any better. The 57 body countours are super comfortable. Frets are great, low action. vintage staggerred tuners give it a clean look and stay in tune. the guitar has an incredible resonance. you can feel and see that they have used the finest materials and the special pick ups are just that special. I can go on and on. I will pick up the bound rosewood model next.
