In the 1970s Fender introduced the Antigua finish on a number of models from the flagship Stratocaster to the classic Coronado Bass.Described as a “rich antique-white finish with halo-mist shading,” it was a stunner – and became highly prized among collectors around the world.
In 1988 Fender released its first ever signature model guitar – the Eric Clapton Stratocaster. Several Variations of the model have been released since, from Custom Shop Specialties to the current Artist Series model.
In 1998 Eric Clapton`s vision of opening a world-class drug and alcohol treatment center on the island of Antigua became a reality. The non-profit Crossroads Center has developed into an internationally recognized treatment center providing services to individuals and their families suffering from the devastating effects of addiction.
In 2008 Richard Ash, Co-CEO of Sam Ash Music had an idea to incorporate the spirit of the Eric Clapton Stratocaster with the Spirit of the Crossroad Center.He commissioned a limited run of 100 pieces of the signature model in the classic Antigua finish along with a commitment to donate $100,000 to the Crossroads Center and that us how the Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster was born.
