Clapton’s Cream record­ings fea­ture him us­ing a va­ri­ety of Gib­son gui­tars. The Les Paul, SG, ES-335 and even the Fire­bird were used live and in the stu­dio. Eric moved over to play­ing Fen­der Stra­to­cast­ers in the 1970s, and to help repli­cate the ‘Gib­son feel’, his sig­na­ture -model Stra­to­caster fea­tures a built in mid-boost cir­cuit, and a blocked off vi­brato unit. The au­dio ex­am­ples in this fea­ture were recorded with a 1995 Gib­son SG, plugged into a Mar­shall 6100 An­niver­sar y am­pli­fier, but the ideas can of course be played on any type of guitar. All of the pickup se­lec tions and ef­fec ts are no­tated along­side the rel­e­vant ex­am­ples. The only ef­fec ts used were a Full­tone Clyde wah-wah for Ex­am­ples 1 and 8.
