Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster - Torino Red

Posted on 05/06/2012 by ozzy in Guitars

Torino red body - maple neck - white pickguard

Along with two Martin acoustic guitars - Bellezza Nera and the 28ECB, this Torino red Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster is another Eric Clapton signature instrument in the Roger Waters rig. As can be seen on the below picture (2000), he used this guitar live for The Bravery of Being Out of Range on In the Flesh tour (1999 - 2002). Later on he switched to a black model of the same guitar.

Features of Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster manufactured between 1988 and 2001 include an alder body, special soft V-shaped neck, three Fender-Lace Sensor Gold pickups (s/s/s), and passive and active electronics with mid-boost (25 db) and TBX (Treble Bass Expander) tone control. Also included is a vintage bridge with a removable block so it can be changed to a tremolo-type bridge. The Lace Sensors in the Eric Clapton signature stratocaster were later replaced with Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups (2001 - present).

David Gilmour used the Daphne Blue model of Eric Clapton signature strat occasionally between 1990 and 1991 (see French and Saunders guitar book sketch), only to found that the mid range boost circuit was not to his taste.
