Comments Here’s a surprisingly nice Strat! Fender’s Eric Johnson Stratocaster model is pattered after a 1957 example, with light weight, comfortable contours, little tweaks to aid tuning stability, and a great sound.

This 2005 Fender Eric Johnson Sunburst Stratocaster is in great, near pristine condition. The weight and contouring make it one of the more comfortable Strats I’ve played recently.

Serial Number EJ05897, built during 2005
Pricing $1,399 CAD including case.
Neck Maple neck with fuller V profile; one piece including fingerboard, with walnut ‘skunk stripe’ for truss rod installation. Truss rod adjuster is at the body end. 12″ radius.
Frets Original frets with very minor wear.
Body Alder body, selected for light weight, with 1957 style contours. While the body is routed for a trem bridge and the trem is installed, holes for the spring cover are not drilled.
Finish 1957 style sunburst finish, in a light nitrocellulose lacquer. The finish is in excellent condition.
Hardware/electronics All original hardware, based on 1957 Strat parts. The tuners, however, are a staggered-post-height set to reduce the need for string trees on the headstock; in fact the Eric Johnson model does not have and isn’t drilled for string trees. ‘Eric Johnson’ Fender pickups.
Playability/Action This guitar plays really well! The trem has all 5 springs involved and they are tightened, so use of the trem would involve setup. Have a look at our feature on setting up a Strat – particularly part 3, which discusses the key trick to getting maximum tuning stability – angling the claw.
Case Original Fender rectangular hardshell case included.
