I've had this for along time. This is my genuine Fender, Eric Clapton pre-amp, as it came from fender. The same thing as in The fender Clapton models. The only thing opened was the original large fender packaging this came in. The original install instructions are shown for a strat, or a tel. All the components and instructions. All the small bags are factory sealed. Being a lefty, What I'm thinking of doing is coming by a good, right handed MIM strat, maybe burgundy or some other weird color. I'm gonna do a jimi on it, string it left handed, slap this thing in there and use it.
