This video from Fender below talks about the very 3 EJ you see below that I am blessed to get and to offer for sale. I kept them over a year before I decided to list them in my shop. It's part of History and money never made me happy to begin with. You WILL NOT Be disappointed with this sale if you decide to invest and enjoy the ride and vibe they will grant you. Hey how much you think Jimi or Stevie's 3 prototype bring today. Brother Eric is in that same league:)
Eric Johnsons 3 Prototype Fender Stratocaster's That Fender's Research And Development used in the making of Eric Signature Guitar's.
Here is the set of 3 prototypes one for each model Eric Johnson strats .
These came from from the Fender R&D and the main man in working side by side with Eric to get them where they ended up . (The owner will get all names and original paperwork,Providents..
The candy apple red one is the third one ever made eric has the first two and it’s the one that got played a lot with a lot of different wound pickups (19 sets) to get the sound Eric was happy with. The rosewood is a protoype for that model also the black F hole. Eric played them all in the year or so it took .. but did not own them. Fender gave him some brand new finished product signature EJ.. To me the protypes are History, Bragging rights and you be the only one on earth to have a protype set..1 of 1
Here is a video of Micheal Frank with Eric talking about the pickups
Here is Eric playing the Black one
