According to Lee Dickson this guitar was kept as a rehearsal guitar, it is the only Strat made for Clapton with these Texas Special pickups. Clapton commented that he prefers Lace Sensor pickups. Lee Dickson and Larry Brooks of Fender dreamt up the name Whitey for this guitar because it looked like a traditional Strat with visible pole pieces in keeping with Clapton's other named guitars, Blackie and Brownie. Clapton apparently didn't use this name himself.more
