Master Built reproduction of Eric Clapton's legendary maple neck Stratocaster known as 'Blackie'
The original Blackie was sold to Guitar Center for a world record price at the time of $959,500, Christie's New York, 24th June, 2004.
In 2006, Fender made 275 limited edition replicas of Blackie, this is one of them.
A reproduction would not be authentic without re-creating the famous 'Duck Bros' flight case Clapton used to transport the 'Blackie'. You can read more about the story behind the case here. Fender have done an excellent job re-creating the case in the condition it was in when sold back in 2004.
A collectors piece would not be complete without lots of goodies. This guitar is packed with them.
