We very rarely get an opportunity to get a Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Strat Masterbuilt by Todd Krause in the video, as they don't tend to stick around for too long. So we jumped at the opportunity when one came through the door this week.
Seeing this opportunity we decided to put together approximations of two iconic Eric Clapton rigs; one from the late 60s with a 60th Anniversary '60 Les Paul and a Dr Z Remedy, and one inspired by Clapton’s rigs of the late 80s into the 90s, using the Clapton signature Fender Stratocaster with a Soldano SLO-100.
It was a lot of fun to take some artistic licence with these guitars creating tones inspired by Eric Clapton, we think both rigs are fantastic and both have complete unique characters.
Let us know in the comments below which one was your favourite of the rigs put together.
If you are interested in any of the gear used then make sure you act fast because we're sure they wont hang about for long!!
