The EJ Signature model brings something special in a sense that semi-hollow construction isn’t a common feature with Strats.

2-colour Burst shown above

Co-developed with the man himself, this one combines attributes such as lighter weight and added resonance with the chambering made to the alder body.

Other features include 12″ fretboard radius, custom quarter-sawn V profile neck, and Eric Johnson Single Coil pickups.

The two classic finishes are beautiful and should please any Strat fan. Retails at US$1999.

Nice looking grains all around,  but it seems that they come in only bass and 12-string models.

These should go fast as usual.
