The Fender Custom Shop has been building dream guitars for the cream of the guitar crop for nearly 20 years. From faithful reproductions of classic axes of the past to fully tweaked customs built to an individual's personal specifications, few instruments command the level of respect afforded Fender Custom Shop models. There are degrees of Fender Custom Shop models: Stock Team-built and Team-built Custom. A select few instruments are handbuilt by the Master Luthiers, the same luthiers that build custom instruments for the likes of Eric Clapton, Kieth Richards, and Merle Haggard. This is the Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster.
Built to Slowhand's exacting specifications, the Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster guitar - among the "Cream" of the Fender crop, so to speak - is powered by three Vintage Noiseless pickups and features a special soft V-shaped maple neck, blocked tremolo and Clapton's signature on the headstock.
