Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Dakota Red Bound Neck RW Board +HSC Nice! 13155
You're looking at an Eric Johnson Stratocaster in the awesome Dakota Red finish. It has the rosewood fretboard and fully bound neck with creme binding. All stock and nice condition. Frets are in good condition. It has been played, no closet queen, milds scuffs, but no big dings or marks, probably 8/10 overall.
The wood grain on the back of the neck is really something. Just look at the long, straight grain extending down the entire neck and headstock--someone at the Fender plant picked a nice chunk of lumber for this one! Weight is 7 pounds, 5 ounces. Comes with Fender fitted hard case. If you have any questions about condition, please ask BEFORE buying. Buyer's responsibility to do their due diligence. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars, but you may need to take it to your luthier for a setup to your taste. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

After years of painstaking research and design, the Fender Eric Johnson Stratocaster Electric Guitar has finally arrived. Designed with Eric by Custom Shop guru Michael Frank-Braun, this beauty is based on a '57, and combines the best of vintage design with modern electronics technology. The '57-style, 2-piece alder body has an ultrathin, Custom Shop-quality nitrocellulose lacquer finish that results in better resonance. Johnson opted for a one-piece, quartersawn maple neck with a 12" radius that's finished with a thin-skinned glossy lacquer and vintage tint. 19 prototype pickups were created before Johnson found the tone he was looking for. The Custom Shop-modified single coils use a new wire material and winding technique for the magnets giving them a unique, Eric Johnson-approved sound. Johnson and Braun also included one of Eric's most famous Strat modifications by wiring the tone controls to the neck and bridge pickups, instead of the standard neck/middle tone configuration of most Strats. This guitar offers tonal perfection thanks to the discerning ear of one of the best players to ever pick up an axe. And it's pleasing to the eye as well, with its large arm contour, '57-style pickguard and shallow pickup cavities, plus thin headstock with vintage staggered tuners that eliminate the need for a string tree. Unbelievable Custom Shop-like quality in a production axe. Includes case. Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.
