The Fender Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster Journeyman Relic Electric Guitar in 2 Colour Sunburst delivers sophisticated style in a finish that appears to have been broken-in through extensive gigging. Adhering to the specs approved by Clapton himself, this guitar matches the feel and finish of the one used across countless classic recordings and tours.
Cool Strat style
The Eric Clapton Signature Strat Journeyman body is endowed with that classic double-cutaway body profile that we've all come to know and love. With ergonomically-designed contours and curves in all the right places, the Strat establishes a figure-hugging playing feel that is the stuff dreams are made of. Whether you prefer to wear it high and tight or low and loose, the Journeyman Strat always sits just right and feels like home.
The body is crafted using two-piece select ash, which establishes a warm midrange character that is infused with a forthright energy. The 2-colour sunburst paintwork allows the natural grain of the ash to shine through, whilst a protective coating of nitrocellulose lacquer allows the wood to age gracefully.
Connected to the body is a steadfast and supportive maple neck, which is carved to the soft "V" profile to provide a reassuring feel in the hand. Extending along a generous 25.5-inch scale length, the strings produce notes rich in clarity with considerable sustain. A coating of nitrocellulose lacquer prevents your fretting hand from being slowed by unwanted tackiness or stickiness as you sail through performances.
Married to the neck is a maple fingerboard, which is home to 22 vintage-style frets that are decorated with black dot position inlays. The 9.5-inch radius promotes seamless execution when laying down elaborate technique, so that you can rest assured that nothing holds you back when you want to let rip.
The body is home to Vintage Noiseless single-coil Strat pickups that are fitted in the neck, middle, and bridge positions. The pickups offer enviably smooth tones that made this perfect for segueing between a wide range of musical styles. The control setup includes a master volume pot, a master TBX tone control that allows you to squeeze out increased bass and treble for a fatter and thicker output, as well as a master active mid boost tone pot, which injects a whopping 25dB boost into your output when you need it.
The Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Stratocaster Journeyman is home to a blocked American Vintage synchronized tremolo, which works in conjunction with the Fender vintage-style tuning machines to uphold tuning integrity whilst optimising intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to Clapton's signature on the rear. The 2-colour sunburst finish is complemented beautifully by a single-ply eggshell pickguard. Each model is supplied with a deluxe hardshell case, strap, and Fender certificate of authenticity.
