Todd Krause Masterbuilt

Todd Krause is legendary for the fine guitars he has made for Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck,and scores of other guitar gods. No question, this is masterbuilt by a true master builder. This '56 Strat has that warm feel of decades of play. Todd did such a wonderful relic job, very realistic and righteous. Not only does it look and feel great, but it sounds great. It comes complete with the added sonic expressiveness of Clapton's signature Strat electronics.

CRAIG'S POV

I'm probably like you - I spend a lot of time checking out guitars online. Every once in a while, I find a guitar in a colleague's guitar shop that seems to call out my name. When that happens, I make a call, do a bit of gentle arm twisting or humorous pleading - basically whatever it takes to get the guitar into my shop so I can offer it to my discriminating friends/customers with a full manufacturer's warranty.

When I saw this brand new Todd Krause Masterbuilt '56 Strat it immediately put a smile on my face. There it was; a guitar that reminded me of my own vintage '56 but with the added modernity of Clapton's active electronics. Clearly, it was something I needed to check out. And here it is; a wonderful guitar masterbuilt built by Clapton's own master builder. It is simply Fender at its best.

About the guitar:
Todd Krause is legendary for the fine guitars he has made for Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck,and scores of other guitar gods. No question, this is masterbuilt by a true master builder. This '56 Strat has that warm feel of decades of play. Todd did such a wonderful relic job, very realistic and righteous.

Not only does it look and feel great, but it sounds great. It comes complete with the added sonic expressiveness of Clapton's signature Strat electronics. That means no 60 cycle hum, no noise, just that pure soulful Claptony tone at any and every volume.

The result is a sonically versatile Strat that can go from Lay Down Sally to Crossroads with the roll of a pot. Built by Eric's own guy, available to you.

If you'd like to find out more about this item, just call or e-mail me. It would be my pleasure to talk to you about it.
