Footnotes

  • In 2010, Clapton appeared on the US TV advertisement for the limited edition mobile phone in which he demonstrates the telephone's features while his song Got A Rock'n'Roll Heart plays in the background only to be interrupted by a call from Buddy Guy. This guitar, which commemorates his participation in the advertising campaign was built by Todd Krause of Fender Custom Shop in accordance with the current specifications of Clapton's stage guitars with the exception of the choice of wood and the finish. The mobile phone's cover had a special design which emulated book-matched figured maple in sunburst finish. Fender used book-matched figured maple sprayed in sunburst to match the telephone on this guitar.
