Fender EC Blackie Tribute Stratocaster Custom Shop, 2006

Fender EC Blackie Tribute Stratocaster Custom Shop, 2006

This is a real treat! One of only 275 built during 2006, here is a Fender EC Blackie Tribute Custom Shop Stratocaster, complete with Duck Bros flight case, Certificate of Authenticity and all of the related materials. The Fender EC Blackie is based very closely on Clapton’s original ‘Blackie’, itself pieced together by Clapton from three 1950’s Strats. That guitar was ultimately sold at auction to Guitar Center by Christie’s on June 24, 2004, in support of Crossroads Center Antigua,  the addiction recovery center Clapton helped found in 1998.

❌SOLD❌ Martin CS 00028 Adirondack and Cocobolo, 2017

❌SOLD❌ Martin CS 00028 Adirondack and Cocobolo, 2017

From the Custom Shop, here’s a very nice Martin CS 00028 featuring an Adirondack Spruce top paired with Cocobolo for the sides, back and head plate. Martin’s Style 28 was introduced in 1870 and the 000 body size appeared in 1902, with one 000-28 built that year. These had 12-fret necks until 1933, with the change to 14-fret necks spurred by the great banjoist migration that began in the closing years of the 1920s.

Pre-Sold‼ Gibson Clapton Firebird I 1964 Model Sunburst, 2019

This fantastic instrument is pre-sold, but we wanted to share it. It’s a brand new Gibson Clapton Firebird, number 100 of just 100 built to re-create Clapton’s 1964 Firebird I as used in Cream. Gibson introduced the Firebird in 1963, initially using neck-through construction – while the neck section is built of several sections of Mahogany separated by Walnut for stability, it extends the full length of the guitar.
