For the record, Clapton never played hardtail Stratocasters. Both Blackie and Brownie are wooden-blocked standard tremolo routed 1950’s Strats. Look at photos (there are plenty of them) and you can see the empty hole for the bar. Every interview I’ve ever read about him confirms this, and his signature model is most definitely not a hardtail.
