This Used 2015 Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Stratocaster Masterbuilt by Todd Krause in Torino Red is here on Consignment. The guitar is in great shape. It is clean, cosmetically and it is fully functioning. The neck is straight, the frets are still crowned, and the truss rod is working correctly. Included with the guitar are the certificate of authenticity and the original hardshell case. This guitar weighs 7 lbs 12 oz.
The name Eric Clapton has been tied to the Fender brand for decades, and this guitar, a Masterbuilt Clapton signature Stratocaster by Todd Krause would certainly be appreciated by Clapton himself, especially since Krause has been building Clapton's touring guitars for years!
This is an instrument that can run the tonal gamut from super spanky cleans a la Lay Down Sally to the searing lead tones on the Journey Man record. The active Mid Boost control adds in a lot of output making the Vintage Noiseless Single Coil pickups sound like high-output humbuckers. A factory-installed 5-way switch gives you immediate access to all the quintessential Strat tones that have spanned decades and been heard on countless hit songs.
The neck profile is a slender Soft V which is very easy on the hands. It's carved from a gorgeous piece of Plain, Rift Sawn Maple. The 9.5" fretboard radius allows for easy bending across the 22 Vintage Frets. The neck is finished with a satin urethane that is never sticky or tacky and simply will not slow you down no matter how sweaty your hands get.
The Vintage Style Tremolo comes with a block in it from the factory which freezes the trem from being used. This is done with a small block of wood and can easily be removed if you'd like the trem to function. This guitar is finished in Olympic White and bares the signature of Todd Krause on the back of the headstock. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case, certificate of authenticity, and full manufacturer's warranty.
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, gets cleaned, then some fresh strings, and a full set-up before being put up for sale. We often even put guitars with worn frets through our Plek machine if need be! Rest assured, any Used Guitar from The Music Gallery has certainly passed its physical!
