Scott Lentz has named this guitar Legendary Venues Series (LVS) "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 the 'fretted maple neck from his 1956 Stratocaster 'Brownie'. The neck measurements on our guitar are as near identical as possible to Brownie's Stratocaster neck.
