A couple of things of note: There are 4 scenes; Scene #1 is for the intro and the choruses Scene #2 is for the verses Scene #3 is for the bridge before the solo Scene #4 is for the solo It needs an expression pedal controlling the WAH For the Intro and Verse I use 2 Humbuckers in phase For the Bridge and solo I use split coils in parallel to get the strat-esque sound My rig is "almost" FRFR. It is: EB MusicMan JP6->Axe-Fx->PreSonus Mixer->Mackie HD powered cabs w/JBL subs. The PreSonus is completely flat, as are the cabs. The tone comes entirely from the Axe-Fx except for that small percentage of color that comes from the Mackie HD 12" speakers. The sound is very close on my own rig, except for the solo - I didn't attempt an identical sound - just the "character" of the solo I haven't had time to dial it in more and probably will only refine it at gigs until its nailed I made no attempt to know what gear Clapton is/was using - I just used my ears If it sounds like ass through your rig - sorry bud . "It works for me".
