Fender Eric Clapton Signature Strat
We love Eric, & not just because he grew up in our neck of the woods! Eric is one of Fenders earliest artists to have a signature guitar made for him - and rightly so! He's probably inspired more people to go & buy a Fender Strat than any other guitarist ever!! Once you've tried one you'll realise that to get the signature "Eric" tone, you really do need a guitar fitted with his patented Fender TBX tone boost circuit.
Here's what Fender say about the Eric Clapton Strat
Our Eric Clapton Stratocaster guitar is guaranteed to please all you Slowhand fans. Among the Cream of our crop, this signature Strat offers special features including a trio of Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups, plus powerful active mid-boost and TBX circuits, all of which make it one of the most versatile instruments we offer. Other features include a special soft V-shaped neck and a blocked original vintage synchronized tremolo bridge.
