Nice pair. Reminds the original prototypes Eric used in the mid 1980s for his August disc.

Is that DVD which inspired you to buy those babies?

One of the two pewter prototypes became black during the 2nd half of 1990. The torino red prototype was given to Sir Ian "Beefy" Botham as a gift in an exchange of his bat.

They all featured 22-fret necks handcrafted by Michael Stevens.

Gorgeous guitars and love the colour. I've owned 2, a pewter and an Olympic white both sadly now gone : /

Strange as I'm not a huge Clapton fan but my favourite guitarist Andy Latimer of the prog band Camel used one for many years.

I retro fitted mine with the Lace Sensors and it can be heard in this vid from 2 minutes onwards. Improvised solo starts at around 4.10



I'm now considering a Roadhouse Strat and modding the mid boost for the full 25db as featured on the Clapton

One should neve, ever, get rid of an EC Strat!

It’s just a great guitar all around. You can get sooo many tones out of it - so versatile. Don’t have to be an EC fan to enjoy it.

True, and having to sell mine was a very difficult and sad decision but sometimes needs must.

I'm really enjoying the Roadhouse Strat I bought recently and am currently populating a new scratch plate with the Clapton mid-boost and Lace Sensor gold pickups to drop in to this guitar.

It will be a Clapton Strat of sorts I guess but with not quite the same charisma or resale value. I think it will be great until I can get back on my financial feet and start looking around for the real mc-coy again. :)

Sounds like a plan Pete, let us know how it turns out.
