Product Information

In 1987 Eric Clapton retired his famous Stratocaster, "Blackie", and approached the Fender Custom Shop to craft a replacement designed to his specifications; in effect, he wanted a new pair of old shoes. Our artisans went to work, and the resulting instrument was the inaugural instrument in Fenders Artist Series - the Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster. With the smooth feel and authentic sound of the original - along with a delicious new Journeyman Relic finish - this special 30th Anniversary edition represents one of the finest instruments to ever come from the artisans of the Dream Factory. 2018 is the only year youll have the chance to add this unique Black lacquer Journeyman Relic finish, along with the feel and authentic sound of Claptons original signature model to your guitar collection.

The Journeyman Relic finish makes the select two-piece alder body look and feel like its seen countless gigs and lets the wood breathe with natural resonance. True to Claptons own model, the stable one-piece quartersawn maple neck with an ultra-comfortable custom "Soft V" neck profile lets your hand nestle perfectly, giving you the perfect platform for unleashing electric inspiration.
