Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Sunburst, 2006

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

Built from 2005, the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster is based on Johnson’s 1957 Stratocaster, with which he’s used on many albums and countless performances.

Drawing from 1957 specifications, the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster is built from a light-weight two-piece Alder body, and a one-piece Maple neck. (This model is also available with a Rosewood fingerboard). Since Johnson removes the backplate, it’s not installed on the signature model and mounting holes are not drilled.   The tuners are a staggered set – the posts for the high E, B and G strings are shortened to increase downbearing at the nut without requiring a string tree, which can add friction.  

This example dates to 2006 and was built at the Fender plant in Corona, California. It is in very nice condition, with just minor wear. This particular guitar is set up for non-trem use – all five springs are installed and the claw is tightened to ‘Deck’ the bridge. The original trem arm is gone, but these are readily available.

The original rectangular brown Tolex covered Fender case is included.

In the words of the builder on the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster:

“Any guitarist who marvels at the breathtaking sonic artistry and peerlessly pure tone of Texas Strat® virtuoso Eric Johnson will also marvel at the Eric Johnson Stratocaster Maple guitar.

Johnson is famously meticulous in crafting his tone, and every facet of the guitar is designed to Johnson’s own detailed specs, from the specially voiced pickups to the extra-contoured neck and body to the distinctive tremolo assembly and much more. A refined signature model honoring one of modern music’s finest Strat masters.”
