I cannot thank the guys at Kraft enough for the fantastic service they provided when I bought this guitar. And the effort they went to in helping me out was extreme. To say I love this guitar is an understatement. It damn near plays itself and my playing has improved out of site since I took delivery. I could not believe when I plugged it into my Marshall amp that there was nothing but silence until I started to play. Other guitars have given me small, but noticeable, feedback but his beauty was absolutely silent. Playability is supreme, in fact I picked up a "deluxe" Start the other day and it came nowhere near offering the ease of which this baby allows you to play. I was lucky enough to pick up the last one in the shop and I see there are a few still kicking around but I would recommend if you are looking to buy A Clapton Strat you act swiftly because they do not stay on the shelves for very long.

This is my first strat, but my third Fender and my seventh guitar overall. I was skeptical of getting a strat, an old man's guitar... Well, I love Eric Clapton, thought that the on board electronics would be interesting and was interested in trying a thinner neck. I am (or thought I was) a "fattie" man.

First impressions are everything and this guitar delivers. It was almost in tune right out of the box, so I was able to plug and play. I plugged it into my Ramparte amp, tuned up and started to play a bit. The first thing I noticed was that the neck is pretty darn playable. The vintage style frets and neck make a great combo. I am used to baseball bat thick necks and generally use 11's. Fretting was effortless, it picked up on the smallest of finger movements and the vibrato you can get out of it is really nice.

The noiseless pickup are just that, noiseless. I usually get a nice hummmmmm out of my Ramparte and did not notice it with the EC strat. With the mid-range boost and TBX tone control through the clean channel in the amp, my wife even commented about the tone. This is highly unusual, as she says she cannot tell the difference between my Tele and my Les Paul traditional pro. As a total tone hound... I was in guitar geek heaven. There is no end to the tones and little nuances you will likely get out of this thing. Once I plug this thing into my Evil Robot amp, I might not leave the basement for a month.

Now on to the nitpicky stuff... The knobs are cheap feeling, the volume knob especially has a bit of grind to it and the pick guard is already warped by the neck pickup. It even raises it a bit (I won't know how much until it do a proper set up on the guitar).

I already have a FSR noiseless Tele with TBX mid-boost that I absolutely LOVE and wanted a Strat similarly equipped. After doing a lot of research on Strats I ultimately learned that the EC is the only model currently available like that and so I just last week went out and bought the 'team-built' US model ($1,600).
Wowwww!!! Since only a Tele sounds like a Tele these two could truly be the only guitars I might ever need! First, all the classic Strat tones are there only ‘hotter’, and without the noise. I compared it to a Strat with Texas Special pups (regular; not noiseless) and the EC blew it away. It may not be able to get quite as ‘thin’ sounding as early vintage single coiled Strats but that’s not the tone I’m looking for anyway. But with its TBX mid-boost and active tone controls the EC can open you up to a world of tone unimaginable from any other Strat or other single-coiled guitar; you might even forget you’re playing one. I’m still experimenting and almost everything I try sounds great.
For example, another of my guitars is a super-sweet Korean PRS that I modded with DiMarzio four conductor humbuckers. Up until now it had been my mainstay for thick lead tone. I’ve been doing lots of 'A-B' comparisons since getting the Strat and for now anyway, the PRS is getting quite lonely, just sitting on its stand, jealously watching me play the Strat night after night. Anything I might play on the PRS just sounds that much sharper and clearer on the Strat but, because of the mid-boost, has every bit as much body.
Each of the EC Strat's pups are actually two single coils stacked vertically but wired in humbucking mode to make them noiseless. Because the two coils share the same pole pieces there is then only the one point along the vibrating string that excites their magnetic fields.

I would not buy another Strat. I've owned a few (including "Custom Shop" guitars from Fender). Trust me, this guitar tops them in every way. The V neck is amazing, the audio taper volume pot let's you play cleanly way down on the volume pot (it doesn't go silent below 8 like most Strats), and the TBX and MDX pots combine for amazing tones you'll never get from any other Strat. Doesn't matter if you like Clapton or not, this one is a no-brainer. Just buy it.

As I plugged this into the amp I thought it sounded pretty good then I went and recorded with a group and heard my lead parts I played back with the group the sound was phenomenal it screamed through everything else in the song not buying a new guitar for some time
