Fender Custom Shop '56 Active Stratocaster Relic Masterbuilt by Todd Krause SN R93676

Regular price $6,720.00 Sale

We have concocted this guitar with many characteristics from the various Eric Clapton Strats Signature models that have come and gone over the years. We call this "The Active Strat". It's looks like a no frills 56 Strat Relic Finished in Black but it is loaded with a set of Noiseless Vintage Pickups, disguised with unlabeled pickup covers, and then has the Mid Boost circuit found on the Clapton Strat. This guitar is essentially 1 part modern Clapton Signature, 1 part Blackie, 1 part Brownie, and all parts Todd Krause. Todd has become one of the most well known builders at the most well known electric guitar manufacturer. And that's why he builds for Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and scores of other famous artists. This guitar feels like your favorite pair of jeans. It is expertly relic'ed for a feel that is undeniably silky smooth. Not only does it feel great, it sounds fantastic too. Thanks to the set of Vintage Noiseless pickups, this guitar sounds bright, clear, bell-like and expressive but without any 60 cycle hum. We had Todd add the Clapton Signature Strat Electronics (as Eric is currently getting them) to blend 'Blackie' with the Modern Clapton Signature Strat. The result is a sonically versatile Strat that can go from Lay Down Sally to Crossroads with the roll of a pot. Even if you aren't a Clapton Fan, you'll love the variety of tones this Masterbuilt Instrument offers and the level of play it brings to the table!
