    I bought a 2017 used Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster
    in Torino Red from Guitar Center. It will be my 4th one and
    this time I'm going to keep it. It was in Excellent condition
    and I can get this coming Monday. They won't open it till I
    get there. The guitar will be play thru a DR Z Z Wreck Head
    and 2X12 Cab.

    We’re brothers from another mother !!

    my beloved Clapton Strat will always be with me. Neck plays like butter and the mid boost is awesome. I modified mine pretty significantly- pickup swap for SD STK 4’s noiseless (basically SSL-1’s) and did a 7 way push pull 250k tone pot and a bone nut. Enjoy yours! And this time hang onto it

    I’m sure that’s a good bit ahead of what most of use are using I have a PRRI upgraded the components along with a prince of tone OD pedal and it’s fantastic for blues and classic rock. Also run it through a Marshall DSL 40 which is awesome.
