GRAMMY-WINNING SOUND

Bringing to life the vision of one of the most respected guitarists in the world, the Eric Johnson Signature Stratocaster Thinline is the perfect marriage between a semi-hollow body and a traditional Stratocaster. Johnson is famous in guitar circles for questing for his ideal tone—liquid and articulate, it perfectly complements the playing style that earned his place in the modern guitar pantheon. In 2015 he approached us to co-design a lightweight, resonant instrument that combines the tones of his favorite semi-hollowbody guitars and his Stratocaster. Two years later, we hit the formula for tonal nirvana with the Eric Johnson Signature Stratocaster Thinline.

Features
  • Semi-hollow alder body and top; nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • Three Eric Johnson single-coil Stratocaster pickups
  • Custom quartersawn “’57 Soft V”-shaped one-piece maple neck; 12”-radius maple fingerboard; 21 medium-jumbo frets
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge and staggered tuning machines
  • Includes custom hardshell case

  • Highlights

    SEMI-HOLLOW 2-PIECE BODY

    We tested many configurations before Johnson settled on the lightweight capped alder body. With custom chambers and traditional Strat contours this guitar looks as good as it plays.

    NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH

    The nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

    Fender's R&D engineers worked closely with Johnson to craft the perfect pickups for his uniquely articulate sound. Carefully blending our legacy with EJ's discerning sonic tastes, these Stratocaster pickups are a key element of his tone.

    CUSTOM ERIC JOHNSON NECK

    The thick “Soft V”-shaped neck slightly smooths the sharpness of a “V” profile, rounding it out so it’s more comfortable for rhythm and lead playing.

    STAGGERED VINTAGE-STYLE TUNING MACHINES

    Not only do these tuning machines have a cool vintage look, they also create optimal string break angle at the nut, removing the need for string trees.

    NO REAR TREMOLO COVER

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