Strings
The Eric Clapton 1960 Les Paul is fitted with genuine Gibson strings, sizes .010 - .046.  
Bridge
In the image of its predecessor, the Eric Clapton 1960 Les Paul carries an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge that is made from zinc and plated in polished nickel. This bridge provides a firm seating for the strings, allowing the player to adjust and fine-tune the intonation and string height in a matter of minutes. It also yields excellent coupling between strings and body, maximizing resonance, tone, and sustain. Bridge
Tailpiece
Every Tune-O-Matic bridge is combined with a separate "stopbar" tailpiece, which is essentially a modified version of the earlier wraparound bridge that's designed to further enhance the connection between the strings and the body. The Eric Clapton 1960 Les Paul's stopbar tailpiece is made from lightweight aluminum just like the original. Tailpiece
