Fender Custom Shop Artist Collection Journeyman Relic Eric Clapton Stratocaster Aged White Blonde Finish ID-11160
Fender Custom Shop
For over 30 years the extraordinarily talented luthiers of the Fender Custom Shop have been providing the most illustrious guitar players of their day with their dream instruments.
Mirroring Eric Clapton’s personal specs, the original Eric Clapton Signature model born in the Fender Custom Shop just got cooler with a new Journeyman Relic finish.
The new finish lets the two-piece select ash’s figure show through while feeling like it’s seen countless gigs. Offering a special soft V-shaped maple neck, three Vintage Noiseless™ pickups, blocked tremolo and Clapton’s signature on the headstock.
Along with the smooth feel and authentic sound of the original—the Journeyman Relic Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster is one of our finest creations.
Jesse's Two Cents:
"...and a White Strat, with black neck dots, Noiseless Pickups..." (terrible lyrical re-working of White Room by Cream...oops, forgive me, I couldn't resist).
The Clapton Signature Strat has awed and inspired me since before I ever owned an electric guitar. I remember seeing photos of it in pewter and Ferrari Red, but probably my favorite was seeing EC using his white one, playing "5 Long Years" (featured on "From the Cradle" in '94), on SNL. This guitar is absolutely iconic. Apparently we thought we were receiving a sunburst model, and yet here we have the white one, and I couldn't be more thrilled holding it and trying to cop my best Clapton impersonation of "5 Long Years". The neck is extremely comfortable in the hand, worn-in V shaped neck with the finish removed, ultra thin Nitro on the body, EC's discrete signature on the back of the headstock, staggered vintage tuning heads, Noiseless HOT pickups...I really don't want to put this guitar back on the wall!"
Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
