Hi I’m Chris (MD, Guitar Mania), and I want to thank you for viewing this product. Guitar Mania is a small family run tradition bricks n mortar shop with a front door, til, phone and real people, offering a very personal service ;o)
It’s business, but it’s personal, so your order really matters to me! Thank you!

Here we have a GENUINE USA made Fender Eric Clapton signature guitar. Buy in confidence, we’ve been a Fender dealer for nearly 30 years.

Summary:
This is an excellent example of an iconic guitar from a living legend.
Great feel, I set this guitar up myself and as a guitar shop owner a gigging guitarist I want you to have every confidence that this guitar is a great example and playing to the best of it’s ability (Hey we’re all different, but I’m saying this guitar is amazing, in my opinion) I just have way toooo many.

Condition: 8.5/10 – Very good condition for the age of the guitar, looks liek it has spent most of its life in the case. A few swirls and scratches on the back of the guitar but nothing you would not expect to find on a Black gloss guitar. The Fender bullet strings sticker is still on the backplate.

Neck: 8/10 – Frets are in great condition, one small mark in the side of the neck by the 20th frets on the treble side then a couple of scuffs on the bass side. Then a small couple of dings on the end of the headstock. Some slight hazing around the dots and side dots.

Hardware: 9/10 – All original hardware with minimal tarnishing, the guitar has spent most of its life in the case.

Electrics: 8/10
Sockets, pots and switches etc are wear and tear items. The electrics on this guitar have been tested and are in very good working order, but my standard disclaimer is it’s a used guitar and one must expect SOME occasional electrical ‘scratching’ noise, crackling and popping when adjusting pots and switches. In our opinion the electrics on this guitar exhibit less than average ‘noise’ in normal play but there’s no guarantee how long they will stay in this condition.

Playability:
This guitar has been lovingly set up by Jon, one of the UK’s most highly regarded and experienced guitar techs.
That doesn’t mean this guitar is the best playing guitar ever, it just means that he has taken the time to set it up. Adjust the action, intonation etc so that it plays as well as can be expected and stays in tune as good as any guitar of this type does.
We all have differing styles and demands from our instruments. Some of us like fast n low actions for fretboard burning licks, others prefer a high n mightly action for show stopping windmills and downtuned heavy riffing and everything in between. No one set up suits all!
This specific guitar has been set up sympathetically for it’s style so has a fairly low action, and minimal fret buzzing.

Case: Comes with original case in good condition and some case candy
