Fender Blackie Tribute Strat ready for launch

What is likely to be the nicest, most authentic and certainly amongst the costliest of Fender Tribute guitars is almost upon us. The Fender Custom Shop has been given unparalleled access to Eric Clapton´s most famous guitar, the hybrid of three Strats known as Blackie, and they have now built an ultra-limited number of replicas.

Keep an eye on Guitarist (issue 283) - out on 28 October - for the full story. And you can count down to the guitar's launch by clicking here.
