Eric Johnson thinline Fender Stratocaster

As I’m sharing more and more of my passions I’m finding that my older followers are remembering I started off sharing my guitar stuff. As a result of that I’ll be posting a bit more of it rather than just technology. I wanted to share a few images of the new guitar I’ve picked up to help inspire my to get back into playing and recording.

Here’s the official Fender site.

I took a few pics with both my iPhone and DSLR I wanted to share with you.

The design seems to be a love or hate thing in the community but I love it. Always wanted a semi hollow and being in one of my favourite guitars made this immediately appealing for me.

The body and neck are nitrocellulose finished so it’ll be shiny and a bit sticky until it wears in.

Eric Johnson has some of the best clean tones out there and the signature model doesn’t disappoint. Between the semi hollow and pickups this is the best sounding clean guitar I’ve played.

The case is great, vintage looking and comfortable to carry.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how this guitar ages over time.

Next up is restringing with my favourite gauge and getting recording.
