Eric Clapton’s Roger Giffin Stratocaster (Green)
According to the info available on the Giffin Guitars’ website, Clapton not only had the blue Giffin Stratocaster, but also a green one. Both were built by Roger Giffin as replicas of the Blackie – a 50s “Partcaster” that was Clapton’s main guitar at the time.
Although the blue guitar was seen on numerous occasions in the mid-80s, it seems that Clapton never appeared with the green one. He might’ve given it to someone or simply kept it safe at home.

He played the green one in a youtube video BB King \ Eric Clapton – The Thrill Is Gone 2010 Live Video FULL HD.
Hey Tim. I just checked the only video from 2010 of Eric and BB King that I could find, and it seems that Eric is playing a sonic blue Fender Strat in that one. If you have a link to your video, post it here.

If you would like a correct picture of the Green Giffin. I could send it to you. It doesn’t have a white pickguard. And that’s the same neck from the blue one.
I’d appreciate that Faron. You can send it to [email protected]
