If you’ve ever wanted to own a guitar exactly like Eric Clapton has custom built for himself, this is the one. Masterbuilt by Fender Custom Shop original Mark Kendrick in 2002, you could swear it’s brand new. This Strat is from the same era where Mark was making Clapton’s famous Crashcasters for Crossroads Festival. In addition, Mark built Clapton’s gold leaf strat which fetched about $500,000 at auction. Kendrick began his tenure with Fender in 1991 and rose through the ranks to Master Builder and beyond. He built one-off guitars for the likes of Clapton, Merle Haggard, Sting and so many others.

MARK KENDRICK
Founding Master Builder
(1991-2016)


In April of 1991, Mark Kendrick was hired to paint for the Fender Custom Shop and went on to be a builder in 1992. While at the Custom Shop, he touched several aspects — from painting and building to artist relations and R&D. "There was no hard line,” he said. During his 25 years at the Custom Shop, he worked with some of the most-respected names in music: Merle Haggard, Keith Richards and Eric Clapton–for whom he worked on the "Gold Leaf" Stratocaster. Throughout his 25 years, the Custom Shop always represented “unshackled creativity in the guitar arena."
