The Fender Eric Johnson Thinline Stratocaster Guitar is the signature model of one of the most celebrated and respected guitarists in the world. With a proficiency in his instrument that transcends genres, Johnson is an award-winning musician who has been on his own personal journey to find his perfect tone. Collaborating with Fender, Johnson's Thinline Strat combines the tones of his favourite semi-hollowbody guitars and his beloved Strat. Each model is supplied with a deluxe blond hardshell case with black ends and is strung with Fender USA strings.

Classic Strat style

The Eric Johnson Thinline Stratocaster is shaped to the same ergonomically designed Strat profile that has accompanied Johnson throughout his career. However, this model benefits from a custom-chambered alder body complete with f-hole, which improves resonance whilst ensuring a more lightweight feel in the hands. The same figure-hugging curves are present, as are the deep double-cutaways that afford ready access to the upper reaches of the neck. The body is protected by a coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which allows the wood to breathe to improve its tonal character, whilst allowing it to age gracefully over time.

Supportive maple neck

Paired with the body is a supple maple neck, which is shaped to the soft "V" profile that lends a guiding seam along the back of the neck. The neck is designed to provide a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand for maximum comfort. Married to the neck is a bright-sounding maple fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium-jumbo frets that are decorated with black dot position inlays. Shaped to the 12-inch radius, the fingerboard contributes to seamless string bends and string skipping thanks to the flatter radius.

Specially-voiced pickups

The Eric Johnson Thinline Stratocaster is equipped with specially-voiced Eric Johnson single-coil pickups in the neck/middle/bridge positions, which were designed to meet Johnson's specifications. Mounted to the body using countersunk screws for greater vibration transfer, the pickups deliver sumptuous tones that are as versatile as Johnson's playing style is.

Control comes in the form of a five-position pickup selector switch, as well as a master volume control, as well as independent tone controls for the neck and bridge pickups. The aged white control knows complement the single-ply parchment pickguard beautifully.

Gig-ready appointments

The body is home to the 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo, which anchors each string securely for peerless intonation whilst affording fluid vibrato control. The headstock is home to vintage-style staggered tuning machines for precise tuning stability throughout the most dynamic of performances. The Fender Eric Johnson Thinline Stratocaster Guitar is a beautiful model that is worthy of bearing the guitar legend's title.
