Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Just like Clapton's own guitar
- Vintage tones plus midrange boost

You'd think that any famous guitarist would want to pick some amazingly maple or ash for his own personal instrument, but this simple alder-bodied guitar is as close to Eric Clapton's own go-to guitar as you can get. And once you play the Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster, you'll know why! Thanks to the active 25dB midrange boost and TBX circuitry, you can go from crystal clear tone to a full-throated growl with the simple spin of a knob. Combine that with three of Fender's legendary Vintage Noiseless pickups and the supple feel of a blocked American vintage synchronized tremolo, and you get the same kind of performance Eric Clapton himself relies on every time he takes the stage with this Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster.Vintage tones plus midrange boost
The Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster comes standard with a modern 5-way blade switch, making it easy to access all the standard Strat tones. But that's just the beginning. To access a special active 25dB midrange boost, you just pull on the first tone knob. That gives the Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster the kind of beefy tone you'd typically expect from a humbucker. And it gets even better. Pull the second tone knob, and you tap into the onboard Fender TBX master tone control, which can smoothly go from bright and glossy to dark and smoky by rolling off the highs!Fast playing maple neck with soft "V" shape
A little-known fact about the Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster's custom neck carve is that it's actually based on Clapton's most prized acoustic guitars. By smoothing down the more dramatic Fender "V" shape, the Fender Custom Shop was able to create a neck profile perfectly suited to Eric Clapton's taste. What's more, this 1-piece maple neck and fretboard comes finished with an ultra smooth satin coat, making it one of the fastest and most comfortable Strat necks we've ever encountered.Fender's Custom Shop delivers unrivaled quality guitars
