Having always favoured the fender guitars of the 1960s the Eric Johnson's signature Stratocaster features a range of traditional components and specifications such as the lightweight two-piece Alder body with deep '57 style body contours and cavities. Also including a one piece, quatersawn Maple neck with vintage tint the Eric Johnson Stratocaster delivers robust and period accurate features.
Incorporating specially voiced Eric Johnson Single Coil Pickups this unique Stratocaster delivers a bright, balanced and warm tone perfect for smooth, clean progressions in the neck position and crisp and crunchy lead licks in the bridge position.
The Eric Johnson Stratocaster incorporates vintage style staggered height tuners which reduces break height angle between the nut and tuning pegs. Unlike the traditional string tree method of retaining the tension staggered tuners allow the string to more accurately retain tension resulting in advanced tuning stability when bending and using vibrato.
Featuring a 60s style soft V neck profile the Eric Johnson Stratocaster provides improved sustain and a fuller tone due to the thicker profile whilst the soft contours of the neck allow a smooth playability with the option of over the top style playing often favoured on V shape necks.
