RARE Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton 2010 Limited Edition "EC Grey" Masterbuilt guitar! This is an extremely rare model where Fender crafted only 111 guitars in 2009 for this 2010 Limited Edition: Some in Daphne Blue as a direct replica of Clapton's 2009 Australian tour guitar, and some in Eric Clapton "EC Grey" that was a direct replica of his 2006 & 2007 world tour guitar! The EC Grey color is unique to this guitar only and is different from the pewter grey used on Clapton's earlier guitar and more commonly found signature guitar for the general public. EC Grey is the actual unique color only for Clapton and the owner of this guitar. Mint condition Case Queen and time capsule still in the wrapper with all plastic protective films present on pick guard and back cover.
The EC Grey model was designed and built by Fender Masterbuilder Todd Krause. All of the hardware and electronics match that of Clapton's own guitar. Importantly, the tremolo is blocked off from the factory by Fender with wood and rear cover removed as Clapton's own guitar was for his world tour. Unfortunately, most collectors have removed and discarded the block thinking this was done aftermarket by someone else and have covered the tremolo cavity in some instances with an aftermarket cover. This is not correct for this model! More unique to this exact example in this small Limited Edition release, it is one of the handful of the 111 guitars that did not receive Fender's cheesy "When You're Ready" slogan stamped into the neck plate, which would not be present on Eric Clapton's own guitar.
This is the very finest example we have found anywhere in the world. If you want the very best, you are looking at it. Fantastic condition for 14 years of age.
