Eric Clapton’s Roger Giffin Stratocaster #2

According to the info available on Giffin Guitars website [Giffin Guitars – Client list], Clapton not only had a 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 axe at the time.

Although the blue guitar was seen on numerous occasions in the mid-80s, to our knowledge Clapton never appeared with the green one. He might’ve given it to someone, or simply kept it safe at home.
