He's a legend. Some would even call him a "Guitar God". With a world-renown status as one of the best guitarist to ever play, it's only fitting that Fender would design a guitar, built to Eric Clapton's own specifications, to pay homage to his success as a musician and artist. The Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster, as requested by Clapton himself, features an Alder body and a soft maple "V"-shape neck, similar to the feel of his acoustic guitar. The 5 position switch, Vintage noiseless pickups, and TBX tone circuit all contribute to the sound, which Clapton calls "compressed", delivering a wider tonal range.
