Overview

Please note that the Return Period for this product is 3 days.

Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Todd Krause crafted this loving tribute to Eric Clapton's "Blind Faith"-era Tele. A 1964 bound Tele Custom that had the neck from Clapton's famed "Brownie" '56 Strat swapped in, the original was first featured in a performance with Cream for a Danish film in late 1968, but more publicly at one of Blind Faith's very first public shows at the first of four 1969 Hyde Park Festivals.

Starting from the base specs of that '64 Telecaster, Krause recreated the soft-V of Brownie's neck, carefully grafted onto the alder body, a feature that sets this guitar apart. He then used hand-wound Custom Shop pickups to recreate the tone and vibe of the original guitar. The Journeyman Relic finish gives the guitar just enough wear to be interesting with plenty of room for you to add your own. In addition to a deluxe hardshell case, the guitar includes a Certificate of Authenticity personally signed by Eric Clapton.

This special Crossroads edition is destined to become an icon in its own right, and will be featured at the 2019 Crossroads Festival.
