Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Strat Mercedes Blue

Description

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, blocked tremolo and Clapton’s signature on the headstock.

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.

Block Tremelo

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.

Fender Custom Artists

The world’s greatest artists have come to the Fender Custom Shop for decades in search of their perfect instruments. They are able to offer the same artist instruments to you, built in the same shop by the same skilled craftsmen. Each guitar gets the attention of a master craftsman so when you pick up a custom shop guitar you can see the difference.. They are simply flawless.
