Own Eric Clapton's Guitar


In 1970 Eric Clapton built a guitar, which he called "Blackie" (above), from the parts of three Fender Stratocasters.

He played it until 1985.

In 2005 Guitar Center stores purchased it for $959,500 at auction.

The company has created 185 copies and started selling them this past Friday, November 24.

Don't dally, Sally.



Inquire within.
