That was my original post, I figured since I was going to put the mid boost in, I mgiht as well switch out the pickups.

Anyways I'm doing this all on a MiM strat.
I was wondering the there is anything special about the clapton body. I figured buying the neck off ebay, putting noiseless vintage SC pickups, and the mid boost in. I'd have a clapton strat for cheaper than market price.

You could go old-school Clapton and put some Lace Sensor Golds in there. That's what his original signature Strat came with. If I'm not mistaken, the Clapton Strat also has a different profile neck than most Strats, like a deep V shape.

ColdGin, according to fender specs both bodies are Alder.
Dirk Gently, I stated I planned on buying the neck off ebay at a later time, an 09 Clapton neck, taken off his one of his strats, goes for about $650-750

I have UG Black Style and I can barely read my signature.

Also, I like black.

+1. it'll be the same back contour as his strat, but in whatever neck wood you would like (exotic woods are the sh*t!) and it would be cheaper than $600 like you said his necks are on ebay. warmoth is a win-win in this situation i think.

and they're having a 20% off sale right now, if you wanted to order now would be the time. you could get a body and neck from the showcase (pre-made, so you wouldn't have to custom order) for fairly cheap. just a thought, check them out.

I agree with the Warmoth suggestion.They make some really high quality stuff,and there are a ton of build options,so you could get exactly what you want from Warmoth and probably save a few bucks as well.
