DETAILED ERIC JOHNSON STRAT STYLE

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.

FEATURES

  • Light two-piece alder body with deep 1957-style body contours and cavities
  • One-piece vintage-tint quartersawn maple neck (contours sanded very smooth) with ’57-style “soft V” contour
  • 12”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets
  • Specially voiced Eric Johnson single-coil pickups with countersunk screws and five-way switching
  • Vintage-style tremolo with silver-painted block,’57-style string recess, no paint between base plate and block, and five springs (no tremolo cover)
  • Master volume, neck tone and bridge tone controls
NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH

Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character, and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players.

QUARTERSAWN NECK WITH “V” PROFILE

The neck of Johnson’s finely crafted signature Strat is fashioned from extra-strong quartersawn maple, with a sharper 1950s-style “V” profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) ideal for players with larger hands whose thumb extends over the edge of the fingerboard.

SPECIAL ERIC JOHNSON PICKUPS

Eric Johnson is known for being meticulous about tone, and the sound of his signature Stratocaster comes from three specially voiced Eric Johnson single-coil pickups with countersunk mounting screws.

12″ FINGERBOARD RADIUS

This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12″, is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25″ radius and a modern 9.5″ radius. Feels notably flat even though there’s still slight curvature, and is great for bending notes without fretting out.

STAGGERED VINTAGE-STYLE TUNERS

These tuners have a cool vintage-style look and are height-staggered in pairs, with posts that get progressively shorter from the low strings to the high strings. This creates optimal string break angles from the nut to the tuners, with no consequent need for string trees.

NO BACK TREMOLO COVER/SCREW HOLES

According to Johnson’s own specs, his signature Stratocaster has no tremolo cavity cover on the back and no screw holes for one.
