Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster 6-String Electric Guitar (Right-Hand, Olympic White)

The Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster 6-String Electric Guitar is one of our most acclaimed and enduring artist signature models. With a classic design and special features that give it exceptional tonal versatility and effortless feel worthy of one of the world's greatest names in rock and blues, it puts pure Clapton Stratocaster tone and feels straight into your hands.

Soft V Neck Profile

The ‘soft V’ neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross-section) on the Eric Clapton Stratocaster has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel that takes the more pronounced sharpness of a ’50s ‘V’ profile and ‘softens’ it into a somewhat more rounded shape. It is ideal for players with larger hands whose thumb extends over the edge of the fingerboard.

TBX Tone Control

The first tone control knob operates this guitar’s TBX (Treble Bass Expander) tone circuitry. The knob has a detent at the center position (5) and works like a normal tone control from zero to the detent. Turning the knob clockwise from the detent adds presence and brightness; turning it counterclockwise from the detent rolls off high frequencies

Active Mid Boost  

The second tone control knob functions as an active mid-boost control. Turning it clockwise boosts mid and bass frequencies while decreasing treble frequencies

Locked Tremolo

The Eric Clapton Stratocaster comes with an easily removable wood block installed between the tremolo block and tremolo cavity wall to keep it from moving, as specified by the great guitarist himself

Urethane Finish

Urethane guitar body finishes are especially strong and durable and will hold colors with great vividness, sheen, and clarity for extraordinarily long periods

9.5-Inch Fingerboard Radius         

The fingerboard radius is an important spec that describes the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard. This instrument’s modern 9.5-inch fingerboard radius is slightly more flattened than a vintage-style radius, but still with enough arc to provide a natural and notably comfortable fretting-hand feel, and to make bending notes easier.
