Overview

Masterbuilt by Carlos Lopez, this run of awesome instruments that replicate Eric Johnson's original 1954 "Virginia" Stratocaster is limited to just 50, worldwide. "Virginia," named after a name found inside the guitar's routing, is the guitar that EJ played on his earliest solo recordings and which defined his early career. The Masterbuilt run is a painstaking reproduction of the guitar that has inspired so many players, right down ti the single Graph Tech saddle on the high "E" string and carefully matched pot values. The rare sassafras body of the original is duplicated, and adds a unique tonal overlay. If you're a fan of EJ, or just a fan of great guitars, you won't want to miss this rare opportunity.

Becoming a Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder isn't a easy path. Beyond complete mastery of traditional and modern luthiery skills, a builder must have an instinct for perfection and an imagination to see and hear the guitar in the hands of great players. Even experienced luthiers coming to Fender must serve a years-long apprenticeship before they can finally be held worthy of the title "Masterbuilder."

Over the years, Guitar Center's Platinum Rooms have honed their reputation of having a selection of some of the world's most desirable and exclusive gear. The Platinum Guitar Collection features a carefully considered selection of stunning instruments from the world's top builders, whether from the custom shops of major industry powerhouses or from the coterie of top-flight small luthiers. Packed with limited-edition, special-run and one-off unique guitars, the Platinum Collection is your source for the world's finest acoustic and electric guitars and basses. Call today to make a connection to your dreams.
