Description

The Fender Stories Collection to which belongs the FENDER Stories Collection Eric Johnson 1954 "Virginia" Stratocaster (0117442803) solid body electric guitar 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.
Because of its patented design, Dimarzio HS-2 single-coil mode is not as noisy as a standard single-coil pickup. An excellent pickup to use with rack systems and high-gain amps.
Tasmanian Sassafras is some kind of a chameleon in that its tonal personality tends to reflect the player. A person might bring out more of a mahogany sound, or rosewood, maple, walnut or something else depending on the playing approach and the body style of the guitar.
Its tonal properties give it a truly unique sonic personality compared to other tonewoods. It blends some of the dry, woody response of walnut or mahogany, the note separation and focus of maple or myrtle, and the top-end overtones of rosewood.
