Overview

Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster in Olympic White

A Fitting Tribute to a True Legend

In 1970 Eric Clapton famously switched from predominately playing Gibson guitars, to playing mainly Fender Stratocasters. This decision was largely due to influences from Jimi Hendrix and his closest peers. This Signature Stratocaster guitar is guaranteed to please fans of 'Slowhand' and 'Just One Night', closely following the same specification of his original guitar, which sold for nearly $1,000,000 in 2004!

Features include an alder body, three Vintage Noiseless pickups, active mid-boost (25 db) and TBX circuits, special soft "V"-shaped neck, and blocked original vintage synchronized tremolo.

Traditionally, Eric's 'Brownie' Strat (named for its Brown Sunburst finish) was the axe-of-choice for the Rock and Roll hall-of-famer, so 'Blackie' was an intruiging change of look for Clapton on stage. This Olympic White variation is amongst quite possibly the most sought-after Stratocasters in the Fender line-up, and the most economical way to get your hands on an incredibly accurate re-issue of arguably the most famous guitar of all time. We love it!
