About the original Eric Clapton Stratocaster
Blackie is the nickname given by Eric Clapton to his favourite Fender Stratocaster, Eric Clapton Stratocaster. Clapton became exclusively a Gibson player for a period beginning in mid-1965. In 1970, Eric Clapton switched from using Gibson guitars and began to use Stratocasters. In the same year, Clapton found the Sho-Bud guitar shop in Nashville, Tennessee. He bought six 1950s Stratocasters for two or three hundred US dollars each. After giving one each to George Harrison, Pete Townshend and Steve Winwood, he took the best parts of the remaining three assembled the original Eric Clapton Stratocaster. The first—used during the recording of Eric Clapton—was "Brownie", which in 1973 became the backup to the most famous of all Clapton's guitars, "Blackie". In November 1970 Eric bought six Fender Stratocasters from the Sho-bud guitar shop in Nashville, Tennessee while on tour with the Dominos. He gave one each to George Harrison, Steve Winwood, and Pete Townshend. On 24 June 2004, Clapton sold "Blackie" at Christie's Auction House, New York, for US$959,500 to raise funds for his Crossroads Centre for drug and alcohol addictions. For this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, only 275 master-built Fender Custom Shop Tribute Series Blackie guitars will be offered worldwide.
