2009 Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton “Blackie” Stratocaster

Sold for:
1800 USD


Serial # CZ512269. This Custom Shop Clapton strat is quite possibly the nicest feeling and playing guitar I've ever come across. This non-relic'd version of Clapton's famous "Blackie" is in mint condition and seems to have never been played. The protective plastic covering is still in place on the pickguard and backplate. There is a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Alex Nicholas dated 1/26/09, as well as an inspection tag dated 1/23/09. The maple neck and fingerboard with the vintage style frets is like a dream. 22 frets at a 25.5" scale length. This one has the Fender Noiseless pickups which sound amazing. The G&G tweed case is beautiful and the latches still have the protective plastic on them. Includes unopened package with owners manual, polish cloth and whammy bar. Also includes Fender NOS leather strap and custom shop Whirlwind Leader instrument cable.
