Working closely with tone expert and Texas Strat virtuoso Eric Johnson, Fender is proud to introduce the signature Eric Johnson Stratocaster, which offers EJ's unique take on the coveted '57 Stratocaster.

The Eric Johnson Stratocaster Maple boasts a light, two-piece alder body featuring '57-style body contours and cavities for that classic Strat comfort. Available in Black, White Blonde, and classic 2-Color Sunburst, the Eric Johnson Stratocaster Maple comes dressed in a thin, authentic-style nitro lacquer finish that will age and wear over time just as they did in the old days while allowing the wood to breathe for beautiful sound. Crafted to EJ's preferred specs, the quartersawn maple neck sports a cozy '57-style soft "V" profile, and perfect for note bends without fretting out, the maple 'board sports a flatter 12" radius instead of the more curved vintage-spec 7.25" radius or the modern 9.5" radius. Giving this a genuine old-school aesthetic, the neck wears a nitro lacquer finish with a vintage tint. The neck also comes equipped with a vintage-style butt adjust truss rod and a genuine bone nut.

Designed to EJ's exacting specifications, the Eric Johnson Stratocaster comes equipped with a set of three specially-voiced Eric Johnson single-coil pickups with countersunk mounting screws that were made with discerning tone seekers like EJ in mind. The electronics include a Master Volume control, two Tone controls (one for neck pickup, one for bridge pickup), and versatile 5-way switching instead of the old-style 3-way switching.

The Eric Johnson Stratocaster Maple comes fitted with all EJ-approved hardware, which includes a set of vintage-style staggered tuning machines and a vintage-style trem featuring a silver-painted block, '57-style string recess, no paint between the base plate and block, five springs, and no trem cover or screw holes. Includes deluxe blonde hardshell case, a guitar strap, guitar cable, and an "ash tray" bridge cover.

Custom Shop Sound and Feel


Great guitar. I traded in my American Standard Strat to get this. The first thing you notice is the light weight compared to the American Standard, then you notice the sustain and the feel when you stum it. The guitar is sounds fantastic plugged or unplugged. My only gripe is the nito finish that's all over the neck and fingerboard. I know it take time for it to cure, but I can't wait that long (maybe upto a year?). Besides that, I have no complaints.

warning - shop before you buy!!!


Bottom line - this is a production guitar and fender Quality Control SUCKS. Be prepared to view/play several of these before you buy one. I picked mine from 4 in guitar center. On one, the 1st string drifted completely off of the fretboard near the heel! On another, the neck felt too fat for my hand. And the last had a screw missing from the tuners and a bent screw on the bridge - the neck is a personal preference, but the other are totally unacceptable for a 1700 dollar guitar. That being said... the guitar I DID buy - the single best guitar I have ever played. The feel of the neck is so unique (and all EJ's feel different). the lack of a string tree and the vintage trem are my fav features but the true selling point is the sound... my god the sounds this thing makes are perfect. If you're like me you'll go with the honey blonde - total class.

"I've been a fan of Eric's since the first time I heard him play, so I wanted to see what kind of guitar he would put his name on. Fender got this one right in a big way. The shape of the neck fit my hand like a custom instrument and the custom shop pickups make all the differnce. Well worrth the money!"




You can't go wrong with a Strat! Everyone should buy this guitar! I love it!



THE Best stratocaster out of the box !!!! EVER !!!


"Can't put this one down....it has to be the best stratocaster that fender has made in the last 30 years ! Once you plug it in, you'll have to take it home with you. Thank you EJ and Fender !!! "
