For your consideration a 2008 Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton Stratocaster in Mercedes Blue! No one does it quite like the Custom Shop! Flawless high end Eric Clapton Strat! Finish looks black but with the right light you see that Metallic Navy Blue! Fantastic neck, soft “v”! Big full sounding pick ups. The TBX tone and MDX mid boost is pretty darn cool! Factory blocked vibrato. Definitely the best version of this signature model!

Specs!

This guitar is in very good condition. Comes with its original tweed hard shell case and Certificate of Authenticity. 1.65″ bone nut. 25.5″ scale length. Maple neck with a depth of .82″ (1st fret) and .945″ (12th fret). Maple fingerboard with a 9.5″ radius. 22 Vintage size frets are in very good condition. Nickel vintage style tuners. Replica signature on back of head stock. Alder body finished in “Mercedes Blue.” Original set of Fender Noiseless singe coils with original wiring, TBX tone and MDX mid boost. Vintage style vibrato, factory blocked. Weighs 8 pounds and 15 ounces.

Hey, is this weight accurate? Seems very heavy.
These tend to run a bit heavier thanks to the poly finish, additional circuit and blocked trem.
On my crappy bathroom scale it runs 8.9 pounds.

I’m very open to trades. Cash + guitar, guitar’s, guitar & amp, fractal/kemper/quad cortex etc. Speak now if at all interested.
Could add cash to the right trade.

No love for this strat!! I get it. Not a fancy relic that catches the eye. But if you want that Clapton sound, look no further.
The most versatile and usable tone control and boost switch. Barely need a gain pedal to roll into that saturated and compressed Clapton tone.
Open to reasonable offers!

There was a ad on Halifax kijiji looking for a Clapton Strat, didn’t specify custom shop or not.
