2014 Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Stratocaster Strat Blackie Black (991)
This is $4400 street price at other shops:
The New 2014 has the Pat Pend Unreal Old School Quality Saddles.. and Single line labled Fender kluson nickel plated tuners
This Strat is light for a clapton. Most are 8 lbs and up to 8-1/4lbs.. Remember a Strat doesn't mean more Tone with les weight. Eric wants his Strat's are around a 8 lbs weight for Mass = Tone... at right level.. and we both know Eric Clapton Signature USa Custom Shop ALL HAVE IT, I have not play 1 single Strat of his that sucked... not One!.. Zero...:)
Ships in orig Fender box, I was 1st to just open it and take these pics.. These are on back order from the custom shop.. You or I can only get once a year, and the Blackie (Black) are the hardest to get from Fender.. The Custom Shop builds in cycles. NOS, Heavy Relic, Closet Classic, Signature models.. etc etc..... This will be gone soon.. watch..:)
I will get a video up when I get caught up here, but don't take this wrong. They all sound the SAME Perfect, All play like butter.. I have not ever had 1 better than the next, I'm being honest and my opinion.. I have sold over 25 Custom Shop USA Blacks, many others in the Eric's other colors.. I should have a thing or 2 under my belt by now... :)
The Fender Custom Artist Series Eric Clapton Stratocaster is an exact Custom Shop representation of Eric's personal axe. It's even made by the same craftsmen who made the actual Clapton guitar. Refinements include a special soft V neck shape, Noiseless pickups, blocked original vintage synchronized tremolo bridge, active mid-boost circuitry, and master TBX tone control.
My words: Unreal.. Over The Top! Just Nice to have a Strat that has the Active Boost and TBX, You just get different Tones, Never ending fun Strat...Sounds GREAT Dirty or Clean...It's like you got to have one.. Nitro Finish
