DescriptionEric Clapton Signed 1988 Signature Series Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar. A three time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and a four time Grammy Winner, Eric Clapton is considered one of the greatest Rock guitarists of all time. Widely known for preferring to play a Fender Stratocaster for most of his career, Fender produced a limited edition Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster, based on Eric's specifications, in 1988.
The guitar is essentially a vintage 1957 reissue Stratocaster featuring a deeply contoured alder body, a 1-piece soft "V"-shaped maple neck, a "blocked" original American Vintage synchronized tremolo, and three Fender Gold Lace Sensor pickups.
This particular guitar, an Artist Series with Pewter finish, was one of only 10 signed by Clapton (boldly, in black marker, on the body), on May 4, 1990, at the Pacific Amphitheater, in Costa Mesa, California, as part of the Fender promotion. It is in unplayed condition, with all of the original tags still attached, in its original tweed hardcase, with all original items (manuals, cord, strap, cleaning cloth, tremolo bar, etc.). Also included are a signed three-page letter of provenance, and a back-stage pass and concert ticket from the May 4th show. A truly incredible guitar from a true rock and roll legend.
