FENDER ERIC CLAPTON BLACKIE SIGNATURE STRATOCASTER
Inspired by Slowhand’s own Blackie, you to will love this brand new Fender® signature Eric Clapton Stratocaster® guitar.
Never one to stand still, Fender’s Vintage Noiseless pickups were Eric’s personal choice when he sat down with Fender’s top Luthiers to update his signature model. Powerful active mid boost ( 25dB) and TBX circuits give this superb guitar amazing tonal versatility.
The depth of tone that can be coaxed from the three pickups is quite incredible thanks to the active 25dB midrange boost and TBX circuitry. With the simple spin of a knob , you can go from that classic surreal crystal clear chiming Stratocaster tone right to the full-throated growl that will lead you to your own sonic signature . Combine that with a trio of the latest versions of fender’s Vintage Noiseless pickups along with a “blocked” American vintage synchronized tremolo and you have the makings of a truly soulful instrument that sounds as great in the studio as it does up on stage!
