Fender launched the Eric Clapton Signature Model to the general public in 1988. The previous year Clapton had signed a contract with Fender to endorse the production of these Signature Models. In 1986 however he received prototype Signature Strats from Fender. Eric Clapton used this guitar for a great deal of stage and recording work in the late 1980s. Clapton requested this colour for the first of his signature Stratocaster models - it is actually a Mercedes paint colour, which he chose to match the Mercedes he owned at the time.more
