Fender Clapton Strat Signature OW

Electric guitar

For almost 2 decades was the guitar god Eric Clapton seen/heard only with his "Blackie" assembled from 3 strats. When he decided to give it a truly deserved retirement, Fender built him a guitar exactly like Blackie, combined with a few extra wishes from the master. Due to the maple neck and the new vintage noiseless pickups, the Clapton Strat sounds very pronounced, which can be enhanced with the well-known TBX tone control; because Eric's sound have gone lately slightly fatter, the guitar has a very effective mid-boost; when it's active, the soloist sings again in a prime Woman Tone. A very versatile instrument that also celebrities apart from Clapton like to play.

Fender Clapton Strat - fetter Sound!
Leopold jun. und Mitges., 02.11.2009
Ich bin seit drei Jahren stolzer Besitzer der Fender Clapton Stratocaster und finde diese Gitarre genial!

Die Gitarre ist, wie bei Fender üblich, makellos verarbeitet und kommt im Tweed Case.
Die Strat klingt, ohne den Mittenboost gespielt wie eine Strat klingen soll, sie klingelt und ist spritzig, dreht man den Midboost dazu, wird sie wirklich satt, voll und kräftig.
Einzig mit dem V - Profil des Halses muß man klarkommen.

Ich finde die Clapton Stratocaster äußerst vielseitig und leicht bespielbar.
Der Batterietausch wird über das Tremolofach durchgeführt, kein eigenes Batteriefach, finde ich perönlich sehr gut da die Gitarre trotzdem ihren altbekannten Scharm behält.
Fazit: Eine sehr vielseitige Strat die alles bietet, was man sich von einer Strat wünschen kann!

Bonne Strat très polyvalente - 16/20
Simon B. 156, 04.03.2015
Caractéristiques :

Si la Clapton est l?une des Signatures les plus intéressantes de Fender, elle n?est pas selon moi LA plus intéressantes. Je considère que ce titre reviendrait à la Jeff Beck Signature et ce, principalement en raison des caractéristiques de cette guitare. Alors que la Beck a exploité toutes les bonnes nouveautés techniques de Fender (mécaniques bloquantes, sillet à roulement, chevalet moderne et surtout un talon profilé pour faciliter l?accès aux aigus), la Clapton semble préférer rester dans un style vintage. On pourra ainsi regretter :
- Le pickguard très cheap à 1 pli ;
- Les mécaniques Kluson classiques alors qu?il en existe dans le même style, mais bloquantes ;
- Le chevalet vintage serré à fond et bloqué par une cale en bois (Était-ce vraiment nécessaire ?!). Au moins ça aide les mécaniques à tenir l?accord.
- Même pas de straplock !
On peut néanmoins se réjouir que le modèle ne soit pas allé jusqu?au bout de sa logique en nous offrant :
- Une électronique moderne associant les micros Noiseless Vintage au Mid-Boost Actif. (On peut cependant regretter ici que l?activation du boost ne se fasse pas à la manière d?une Strat Deluxe/Elite. Ici le volume reste classique, le premier tone de 1 à 5 est le tone normal, de 5 à 10 il s?agit du TBX et enfin le deuxième tone est le Boost.
- Un manche 22 cases avec un vernis fin et satiné
- Le micro-tilt permettant d?ajuster l?angle d?inclinaison du manche par rapport au corps

Concernant la finition, elle serait correcte pour une American Standard, mais pour une Strat à près de 2000¤, on peut trouver à redire notamment sur le vernis. Gros point positif pour la diversité des coloris de la signature : noire, torino red, olympic white, pewter grey.

Confort

C?est une question de gout, personnellement c?est le manche de Strat que je préfère : profil en V-soft, frettes fines, vernis satiné permettant de facilement se déplacer sur le manche, action basse? Bref nickel de ce côté-là et quelque part c?est le plus important.

Son

C?est le son Clapton (à partir de 1985). Pour rappel l?électronique active des Clapton était accompagnée de micros Lace Sensor avant de passer aux Noiseless dans les années 2000. Lace Sensor ou Noiseless, ces micros ont l?avantage d?avoir un gros niveau de sortie et de ne pas produire de parasites et sont parfaits pour accompagner le Boost. Il en résulte une strat ultra-polyvalente pouvant rivaliser avec un son de hambucker.
L?inconvénient des Noiseless Vintage est que sonnant à vide, ils sont assez fades, avec peu de personnalité, en comparaison avec des micros à l?ancienne (Hepcat, micros vintage 50?-60?, etc?). Mais c?est le sacrifice qu?il faut accepter pour obtenir ce crunch si particulier, et après tout c'est une question de gout.

Une guitare à (preque) tout faire
mup, 14.12.2011
Après avoir longuement étudié les tests divers et variés de pas mal de modèles de Stratocaster, mon choix s'est porté sur cette Clapton signature.

Esthétiquement, c'est très subjectif, mais je l'adore dans cette livrée olympic white (blanc légèrement crème), la qualité est au rendez-vous, seul bémol, comme sur toutes les Strat, le pickguard est un peu cheap, sa finition pas extraordinaire.

Les mécaniques sont d'excellente facture, elle a une très bonne tenue de l'accordage (le vibrato bloqué d'usine aide un peu je pense).

Passons au plus intéressant, le son : C'est là que je pense que cette Strat se démarque des autres. Les micros noiseless ont un excellent rendu et le fait de pouvoir booster les médiums permet vraiment de couvrir tous les genres musicaux, en allant du son lourd au cristallin. C'est vraiment une guitare très polyvalente.

Un petit bémol toutefois sur les potentiomètres dont le réglage n'est pas forcément linéaire, ce qui réclame un petit temps d'adaptation pour trouver ce qu'on cherche.
