We present a 2006 Fender Custom Shop Tribute Series “Blackie” Eric Clapton Stratocaster Masterbuilt by Yuriy Shishkow.
The Eric Clapton Tribute “Blackie” Stratocaster is one of the most sought after guitars ever made. The guitar became available to the public on November 2006 and sold out worldwide within hours. This Fender Stratocaster “Blackie” is like new and has been stored in a private collection.
It’s 100% all original and complete with all paperwork, accessories and original case. This guitar, bearing the serial number YS461, was built by Yuriy Shishkow. It is an exact recreation of Eric’s beloved Stratocaster, down to the cigarette burns on the headstock and heavily weathered body. Even the “Duck Bros” heavy duty road case has been faithfully replicated.The original Blackie was exhaustively examined and measured for the reproduction.
All the guitars were constructed by the team of Master Builders at the Fender Custom Shop, with each builder assigned to work on a share of 275 being produced.
