Special Features: Tone control for bridge and neck pickup, middle pickup has no tone control and is "wide open"
Artist Signature Series Fender built their first signature guitar for Eric Clapton, who was in the search of a second guitar to this beloved “Blackie”- the black Pre-CBS Stratocaster. He got a completely new custom-tailored instrument with a few individual refinements here and there and it soon became one of the top-ranked guitars among signature instruments. Artist Signature Series instruments have all the features that ordinary, mass-produced instruments usually do not provide and are replicas built true to the original which then go into serial production. Some guitars are available as more affordable models manufactured in Mexico or others as more expensive models made in the Custom Shop. Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Stratatocaster Stevie Ray’s brother has a signature model of his favourite guitar as well. It’s a 50’s Stratocaster adorned with modern features such as medium jumbo frets, a soft “V” shape neck, a hot bridge pickup and the modified tone control. As opposed to the original, in this guitar the second tone poti is responsible for the bridge pickup, while the middle pickup does not have any tone control at all.
