You are looking at a Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster Electric Guitar Black, serial number CZ522477. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 13.2 oz.)

For 40 plus years, Eric Clapton has delivered some of his most notable licks with his beloved Fender Stratocasters—now it's your turn. Crafted in the hands of the world renowned Fender Custom Shop Master Builders, and built to Clapton's exact specifications, the Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster offers unique EC-approved features, a distinctive, powerful voice and feel that's well-suited for one of the greatest guitarists of all time, and sets this Strat apart from the rest of the pack.

This Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster is crafted from select alder and wears a black finish, just as Clapton's most prized and widely known “Blackie” Stratocaster. The maple neck will sit comfortably in your fretting hand thanks to the special soft "V" shape preferred by Clapton. Players who employ a wrap-around thumb chording technique will find the V-shape profile a perfect fit to hit those bass notes. On top of it all, 22 vintage-style frets offer up a classic feel.

As far as electronics goes, a set of Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups and special circuitry give the Custom Shop Eric Clapton Strat incredible tonal flexibility. These pickups are designed to dish out that vintage Strat tone, but without the hum and excess noise single-coil pickups are infamous for. Routed through a classic 5-way pickup switch and loaded up with an active mid-boost and a TBX tone circuit, the Clapton Strat can deliver that coveted compression and classic humbucking tone while allowing you to dial in up to 25dB of boost on the spot for powerful lead riffs and solos. This exclusive pairing of pickups and electronics make the Eric Clapton Strat one of the most versatile electric guitars in the Stratocaster family.

The Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster sports a set of vintage-style tuning machines as well as an American Vintage synchronized tremolo bridge which has been “blocked” by a small piece of wood in the bridge cavity, just as Clapton has it on his own Strat.

This prized instrument comes with the complete protection of a vintage tweed hardshell case. Inside the case you'll find the Certificate of Authenticity, a bridge cover, a guitar strap, an instrument cable, a 4-pack of Custom Shop picks, and a polishing cloth. How can you pass up the chance to own this sweet Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster fit for the blues rock legend himself?
