The Fender Stories Collection pays tribute to legendary musicians, their beloved modified Fender electric guitars and the extraordinary music they created together.
Eric Johnson already had his 1954 "Virginia" Stratocaster® when he recorded Tones* and the Platinum Ah Via Musicom**, groundbreaking albums that made him a hero to music fans and guitarists alike. To this day, Eric continues to release brilliant music, tour constantly and is, to the electric guitar community, a savant and widely followed tastemaker. In 2020, for the first time, Eric's 1954 Virginia Stratocaster will be replicated by both Fender Custom Shop and the Fender Corona Production line in limited numbers. With its rare rift/quartersawn sassafras body, lacquer finish, custom wiring and more, the Eric Johnson 1954 Virginia Stratocaster will thrill players and collectors alike with its distinctive look and exceptional tone.

TWO-PIECE SASSAFRAS BODY
A rare tone wood, Sassafras has a distinctive, fine-grained appearance and produces silky tone with focused midrange.
CUSTOM PICKUP CONFIGURATION
Combining a DiMarzio HS-2 stacked humbucking pickup with a pair of Fender 57/62 pickups, this guitar has Johnson’s unique tone while offering plenty of variety.
The middle and neck pickups are out of phase with the bridge pickup, giving you Johnson’s unique “koto” tone in position two.
CUSTOM MAPLE NECK
The comfortable “Soft V”-shaped neck provides clear tone, while the 12”-radius makes it easier to solo.
A period-correct touch, the lacquer finish lets wood breathe while wearing in a distinctive way.
