Take It From The Top

The Fender Custom Shop has been building dream guitars for the cream of the guitar crop for decades. With the Fender Stories Collection, Fender pays tribute to legendary musicians, their beloved modified Fender electric guitars and the extraordinary music they created together. When you pick up the Eric Johnson Virginia Strat solid body electric guitar for the first time, you’ll understand why it's among this unique and limited collection. Johnson has been one of the world’s finest guitarists since the 1980s and his career has been inextricably bound up with the Stratocaster. This 1954 Virginia definitely makes up his most iconic look and this is your chance to emulate that while aiming to also match his distinctive sound and style.

 

Fender Custom Shop’s Take

Limited to 50 instruments worldwide and Masterbuilt by Carlos Lopez, the Eric Johnson “Virginia” Stratocaster is a 1:1 replica of this magnificent instrument, one that could only be born in the Dream Factory—the Fender Custom Shop. Every intricacy of Johnson’s original was reproduced in painstaking detail by Lopez. From the single Graph Tech String Saver saddle on the high E to the flat washer on the output jack and specially cut nut, he left no stone unturned in his quest—even going so far as to match the actual pot values and removing one spring from the rear cavity.

 

Special Features

Featuring a Deluxe Closet Classic finish package, this guitar wears a lightly checked lacquer finish, matched to Closet Classic hardware, giving it a well-loved, slightly aged look. The offset-seam, two-piece body is crafted from tight-grained sassafrass, which adds a “round” note to the instrument’s voice. The AAAA flame maple neck features a “V”-shaped profile that comfortably fills the hand and hosts a 12”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 jumbo frets. Custom, hand-wound “Virginia” neck and middle pickups, matched to a fat-sounding DiMarzio HS2 humbucking bridge pickup powers this guitar’s voice. This trio of pickups are connected by custom wiring and a 5-way pickup switch which places the pickup pair in-phase in switch position two and out-of-phase in position four, unlocking his singing, violin-like tone for you to enjoy.

Other features include single-ply Eggshell pickguard, vintage-style EJ synchronized tremolo assembly, vintage-style tuning machines, American Vintage string tree with nylon spacer and as a special touch, a piece of masking tape inside the control route labelled “Virginia”.
