The Fender Eric Johnson signature models are built to Johnson’s detailed specifications, including woods and contours, pickup voicing, and hardware choices. It has been available in both Maple and Rosewood fingerboard versions, in a variety of finishes, all a very light nitrocellulose lacquer.
Here we have a 2014 example of the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Maple, in a translucent white finish. Eric Johnson Strat serial numbers aren’t necessarily consecutive, and so short of contacting Fender for shipping information the only way to be sure of the age is to pop the neck off the body and check the dates. On this example, the neck date is May 2 2014, and the body date is June 3 2014.
This guitar is in all original, nice condition with just a few finish chips around the neck plate – one of the downsides of thin nitro finishes, which otherwise allow the wood to resonate fully, avoiding the damping effect of heavier poly finishes. It plays very well, and the modern larger fretwire gives better grip for bending and provides a bit more clarity, note separation and sustain. The neck has a ‘Soft V’ profile, with a 50’s kind of fullness.
A Fender gig bag is included.
