Amongst the guitar elite one man stands out. The only three time inductee to the rock and roll hall of fame and with a career that spans over 50 years, Eric Clapton and his signature strat have helped shape modern music. The Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster lets you bring some of old slowhands tone to your music.
Built to Clapton’s specs, the Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster® guitar features an alder body, special soft V-shaped maple neck, three Vintage Noiseless™ pickups and a blocked tremolo.
Custom Vintage Pickups
Famous for great guitar tones and stunning cleans the pickups in Eric’s strat are designed to be hum free. Noiseless pickups give you great response and articulation without any unwanted distortion of your guitar tone. Whether you’re playing clean or distorted this set will give you stunning clarity, a great place to start building your own signature sound.
Clapton is always at the forefront of his recordings, and his guitar is setup accordingly. With an active mid-boost circuit that gives you plenty of punch you can really cut through the mix.
You may notice the tremolo on this guitar has been blocked off. This is a common practise among guitar players but rarely done by the manufacturer. Clapton believes that a blocked tremolo, rather than a traditional hardtail bridge, gives you better tone and more character. The tremolo has the usual removable arm incase you want to change it back to a traditional tremolo setup.
