Expert Review

  • Excerpt: This is a players guitar. It has style,it has class. Let's face it- it's down-right sexy.First, the soft V neck is amazing. It appears to be the best for me. I actually play better using this style neck. Second, this is the most responsive guitar I've ever seen. Perfect for those soft yet fat blues tones for leads/solos, but just a tad bitter harder strum makes this baby gives off mad rythm.

Fender Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster

25 February 2006
  • Excerpt: If you want the easiest guitar in the world to play, with a smooth, huge tone, get one of these. One of the guys that did sound for me when I was playing this guitar called it the "Green Machine". I named it "Miss Molly" from the song "Good Golly Miss Molly!" because that's the way I feel playing it! [ read more on Audiofanzine ] If u want a great sounding guitar that is low maintenance looks great, this guitar is for you. This guitar was worth every penny.

" the best of the best!" - taylor73

5 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I have since 3 months, it is very simple I do not touch my other guitars and yet they are all references. This guitar really bluffing, it pays not mine yourself facing a 6120 Gretsh or even a traditional Les Paul. But what balance, what gameplay, what sound. Any guitarist worthy of the name must own one or at least try one someday. But b...

"You win some, you lose some" - King Loudness

12 August 2011
  • Excerpt: All in all I think the Eric Clapton Strat is a fantastic guitar for someone looking for a great vintage feeling, versatile TONE machine. However, I'm not a V neck guy and can't gel with the feel, so I know it isn't for me. At $1,600 new these guitars are a great deal for what you get, and if you're a V neck/Clapton/thick tone fan, this guitar is...

"One of the more famous strats" - Hatsubai

Audiofanzine
23 June 2011
  • Excerpt: I'm not a huge fan of signature gear, but the Clapton strats are pretty good guitars for the money, especially considering how they're a bit more versatile than your off the shelf strat. Like all Fenders, you should really play one before buying as fretwork can be a bit iffy depending on how the luthiers were feeling at the time.

" The perfect tool for the stage" - zik7170

Audiofanzine
14 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Compared to the stratum american standard no comparison Clapton both played in another category. For the price difference, please. Compared to the custom shop I have not tried but again I have done much research and I have my opinion: 1000 euros more, this is not justified. Those who see only two little difference, except that the custom...

"Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster" - MGR/Anonymous

Audiofanzine
5 February 2003
  • Excerpt: I didn't purchased an EC Strat yet, because it's an American-made model. USA Strats are well crafted, but unfortunately, the prices remained too high. This Strat was faithfully fashioned after the legendary "Blackie", but it was loaded with the Elite Strat's active circuiry. It has 25dB of midrange boost gain, Gold Lace Sensor singl...
