    Any idea whether or not Fender will ever offer copies of Clapton's "Over The Rainbow" strat?

    I'd buy one.

    Thanks Wes. I saw the fs ad. His is basically a 'partscaster' with a copied paint job on a MX body. It is nice and a pretty good copy. Also, if I remember correctly ebay pulled his auction due to the 'copy' job.

    Fender is actually releasing a limited line of custom Crash Strats. These are Strats custom painted by Crash, but not the exact Clapton paintjob. More like 'in the style of'.

    I saw a picture gallery somewhere - I think it was the Where's Eric? site. Some are nice, some are kind of 'eh', all are expensive.

    Crash is a "friend of a friend".

    I think its interesting that he started out as a graphiti artist and turned that into a successful art career (which is how he hooked up with EC, btw)

    I've been told that he's often contacted by a number of other guitarists to paint their guitars, but generally passes on the offers.

    DOH!!! There goes THAT idea!

    I was really hoping that Fender would copy the original Crash design the Clapton played and issue a guitar LIKE it for a price at which a workin' stiff could pay.
