Description

The Clapton Signature model Strat needs no introduction. Since the late 80s this model has been one of the most popular Fender Signature guitar going. This Limited Edition 2010 Clapton Strat melds a limited run "EC Grey" color (rumored to be based on one of Clapton's cars) with tonal versatility with effortless playability.

The standout features on this guitar are easily the neck carve and electronics. The satin-finished slender V carve neck feels great in hand - like a thinner version of a '56 Strat carve - and the electronics go from sparkling clean to fat, mid-drenched, boosted lead tones at the twist of the knob...all without excessive single coil hum. Amazing. 

The fit and finish are exactly what you'd want, and expect, from a Custom Shop guitar. This is an incredibly well made, highly resonant guitar that has excellent snap and sustain - somewhat like a great Tele has (likely due to the maple board and blocked trem).  

Condition: Near mint. There are 3-4 minor indentations on the body - on the side and back - though none break into the wood. There's light pick marking on the guard but again, it's minor as well. 

Clapton devotees or just fans of great Strats will find a lot to love with this limited edition guitar. Simply an outstanding example of Fender's Custom Shop instruments. Priced with hardshell case.
