Layaway

A Rock ’n Roll legend, Eric Clapton paved the way for electrified blues guitar and has inspired guitarists, young and old, for decades. This Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster, masterbuilt by Todd Krause, is designed to Clapton’s exact specs, boasting modern innovation, yet reminiscent of his iconic black Strat affectionately known as “Blackie”. Sporting an Alder body and a “Soft V” Maple neck and fretboard, this Strat is fitted with Vintage Noiseless Single-Coil Pickups, and Fender’s Master TBX and Master Active Mid Boost tone pots. The Master TBX circuity, located in the first tone pot, is one of the oldest factory mods from Fender. From 0-5 it acts as a normal tone control, but once 5 is passed on the dial, the resistance in the pot decreases, effectively allowing more bass, treble, presence, and output to reach the amplifier. This is particularly useful in solos and for bright, crystal clear Jeff Beck esque tones. The Master Active Mid Boost circuitry, aka the “Eric Clapton Mid Boost”, is an active 25dB 500Hz mid boost that beefs up the tone of the guitar, giving the power and thump similar to a humbucker. Whether you’re a Slowhand fan or looking for a Strat with some of Fender’s most popular mods, this Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster oozes vintage tones, with a classic look to match.
