Virtually no Fingerboard or Fret Wear! Superb Low Action possible. Plays Like Butter!
Must have had a Pro Setup when it belonged to Eric Johnson 2005-2007
He used it extensively on Tours and the Nominated Album ‘Bloom’. See Details Bottom of this Page
All Original except a Clever 2 ‘Notches’ made to the original switch to make it a 5-Position switch
One original wire moved on Centre Tone Pot to allow better Tone selection.
Looking at the Wiring and Pots/Switch its difficult to see any changes!
So the Amazing Tone and Pickup Selections are Superb to use - Thanks Eric!
There is Amazing Maple Grain Figurement to the Front & Back of the Neck
Some Minor Playing Wear to the Neck Rear. Just adds a great Vibe!
This is the Best Strat we have seen for some time! See Details Bottom of Page about Eric Johnson
