|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.

|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.|
