Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster review

Here's my review of the Eric Johnson Stratocaster electric guitar. This guitar sells for about $1,629.99 online and is available in 2-tone sunburst maple, black maple, candy aple red maple, and white blonde maple fretboard. It was designed with Eric Johnson by Custom Shop guru Michael Frank-Braun, and is based on a "57. If you're looking for an electric guitar that combines the best of vintage design with modern electronics technology, this is it.

I love the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster guitar. It's a masterpiece. Its features include '57-style, 2-piece alder body, body cavities that are true to '57 specs, 12" radius American Series-style frets, staggered vintage machine heads eliminate string tree, one-piece, quartersawn plain maple neck, thinner, vintage-style headstock, and thin neck cap.

Other features of the Fender Eric Johnson Strat electric guitar include bone nut, Custom Shop-modified single-coil pickups, '57-style string recess, thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, vintage tremolo with silver painted block, master volume, bridge tone, and neck tone controls.

While I do not own this electric guitar, I played it for a very long period at a musical instruments store. And what really appealed to me was its tone. If an excellent tone is your main priority, you can't go wrong with the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster electric guitar. It was everything I expected. This guitar makes you want to play. The feel is also really impressive. It's good to know that this guitar plays even better with time.

In my opinion, this is a very beautiful guitar. My favorite is the candy apple red. Some of my guitarist friends have told me that the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster blows away the Standard Stratocaster and all the other signature models. You be the judge.

I've read some reviews where some mention the gym floor feel to the neck. Apparently, the nitro finish accumulates a lot of dirt in a short amount of time. However, this problem can be quickly solved with a little guitar polish. As far as I'm concerned, it's not a hinderance at all.

Need a guitar that brings a smile to your face each time you see it? The Eric Johnson Stratocaster electric guitar may be just what you need. A little pricey, but if you can afford it, I'd say go for this one. The good thing about it is the fact that it will sound even better in a few years when it has broken in.
