Fender Custom Shop Eric Clapton "Brownie" Tribute Stratocaster
Fender Custom shop had access to the original "Brownie" and meticulously recreated every little detail. Mike Eldred, director of the Fender Custom Shop says, "Whenever we do a tribute guitar, we take the original guitar apart and measure and weigh everything. Just documenting the guitar took three days." Although every ding and dent is accounted for, "everything is new as far as playability," says Eldred.
