THE TPP ERIC CLAPTON
"BLIND FAITH" TELECASTER TRIBUTE
One of the most short-lived 'super-groups' of all time, 'Blind Faith' debuted at a free concert in Hyde Park, London, on June 7th 1969 and became an instant hit with fans. Releasing only one untitled (and infamous) album, they toured until August 24th of that year before breaking up shortly thereafter.
The 'Blind Faith' Telecaster was Clapton's most unique guitar, combining a 1962 Fender Telecaster Custom body with original 3-way switching (bridge, neck, neck - tone bypass) and the neck from his favourite Stratocaster, "Brownie", allowing him to enjoy the bluesy tones of a Tele while still enjoying the same comfort and performance that he had always enjoyed from his loyal Fender Stratocaster!
