Eric Johnson is an American guitarist and recording artist from Austin, Texas. Best known for his success in the instrumental rock genre, Johnson regularly incorporates jazz, fusion, New Age, and country and western music into his recordings.

Guitar Player magazine calls Johnson "One of the most respected guitarists on the planet." Johnson composes and plays not just instrumental songs but also vocal pieces, and plays piano as well as guitar.

Widely recognized for his guitar skills, Johnson's stylistic diversity and technical proficiency have drawn praise from Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, Allan Holdsworth, Larry Carlton, Steve Morse, Billy Gibbons, Johnny Winter, Jeff Baxter, Prince, B. B. King, Rusty Burns, Joe Satriani and the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. His critically-acclaimed, platinum selling 1990 recording Ah Via Musicom produced the single "Cliffs of Dover," for which Johnson won the 1991 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance

Fender has recently released the Eric Johnson Signature Stratocaster Rosewood model. This signature Fender Stratocaster guitar features the same specifications as the Eric Johnson Maple Neck Strat, except for the addition of a 3-ply mint pickguard, hotter treble pickup and a bound rosewood fingerboard with clay dot position markers (available in colors such as Dakota Red, Tropical Turquoise, Medium Palomino Metallic, and Lucerne Aqua Firemist)
