Vintage Noiseless™ pickups
Active mid-boost and TBX tone circuits
Special "soft V" neck profile
Vintage-style blocked synchronized tremolo bridge
The "soft V" neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) on the Eric Clapton Stratocaster has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel that takes the more pronounced sharpness of a '50s "V" profile and "softens" it into a somewhat more rounded shape.
The first tone control knob operates this guitar's TBX (Treble Bass Expander) tone circuitry. The knob has a detent at the center position (5) and works like a normal tone control from zero to the detent. Turning the knob clockwise from the detent adds presence and brightness; turning it counterclockwise from the detent rolls off high frequencies.
The second tone control knob functions as an active mid-boost control. Turning it clockwise boosts mid and bass frequencies while decreasing treble frequencies.
Urethane guitar body finishes are especially strong and durable, and will hold colors with great vividness, sheen and clarity for extraordinarily long periods.
The fingerboard radius is an important spec that describes the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard. This instrument's modern 9.5" fingerboard radius is slightly more flattened than a vintage-style radius to make bending notes easier.
