Without a doubt, Eric Claptonʼs “Blackie” is one of the most recognized and associated musical instruments with guitarists in the history of the electric guitar. Probably the most coveted and iconic Fender Stratocaster ever. In addition, this guitar undoubtedly meets all the conditions to be considered one of the most legendary guitars that ever existed.

It is from the golden age of Fender, the 50ʼs, it was put together based on a selection of different parts, it was played by an electric guitar legend. Without a doubt, all ingredients that transform Eric Clapton‘s Blackie into a unique and legendary musical instrument.

 

This Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster is finished in the classic Black color, and is built by Todd Krause – the man responsible for building Claptons personal instruments. Built to Slowhand’s exacting specifications, the Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster guitar—among the “Cream” of the Fender crop, so to speak—is a legendary guitar and and a worthy tribute to one of the most iconic players.

The soft "V" shape of the neck paired with a 9.5" radius and vintage style frets feels great for rhythm playing, and the bridge tone knob serves as a control for an active mid-boost circuit. Turned up slightly it gives your tone a slight kick, and turned to ten will make your leads and solos stand out in any tune.
