Eric Clapton Stratocaster colour options

Something a bit simple this time.

Below is a list, with images, of colours the Eric Clapton signature Stratocaster has been offered in.

This list doesn’t cover other options. For instance, copies of the Crash painted Strats have been seen from time to time, and in their very early runs, the signature series was seen with variations like 21 fret versions, a switch to activate the extra electronics, the “smokers version”  headstock, or even a rosewood neck!

Some of the guitars below are shown with gold lace sensors which, as is common knowledge, were replaced in 2001 with the Fender Noiseless pickups.
