Eric Clapton bought the Stratocaster® he affectionately nicknamed “Brownie” secondhand at Sound City in London on May 7, 1967, a few days before Cream flew to New York to record their second album, Disraeli Gears. It was a 1956 Stratocaster® with a two-colored sunburst finish and a well-worn maple neck and fingerboard.
You don't need to go to London or travel back to 1967, however. The limited edition Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton “Brownie” Stratocaster® will be available exclusively through Guitar Center on March 21.
The guitar comes in a special black textured vinyl Derek and the Dominos “Fragile” case that also contains several special extras, including a numbered certificate of authenticity hand-signed by Clapton, the 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition box set of Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, a Fender Custom Shop story and photo album booklet, and a Crossroads Antigua brochure.
