Scott Lentz has named this "Reserve" guitar "The Hyde Park Edition". At the 1969 Blind Faith concert in Hyde Park, London Eric Clapton played a three-tone sunburst Fender Custom Telecaster, which was fitted with Brownie's (1956 Stratocaster) 'fretted maple neck. This specially made instrument is very reminiscent of the Blind Faith guitar.
