  • Highlights

    Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish
    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
    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
    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.

    Bound Rosewood Fingerboard with 12" Radius
    Bound Rosewood Fingerboard with 12" Radius

    This instrument features an elegantly bound rosewood fingerboard with a 12" radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard). This is notably flatter than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius, and is great for bending notes without fretting out.


    Staggered Vintage-Style Tuners
    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
    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.
