Eric Clapton: More To Come
Eric Clapton is planning more limited-edition guitars.
Last month, we reported that Fender will sell a reproduction of the Stratocaster he called "Brownie," which was sold in 1999 for half-a-million dollars. Now comes word of additions to the Eric Clapton Crossroads Guitar Collection, a collaboration with Guitar Center to to benefit his rehab center on Antigua.
There will be two Martin acoustic guitars, which will sell for between $6,000 and $50,000, and copy of the 1957 gold top Gibson Les Paul he played on The Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and later gave to George Harrison. That one will set fans back $15,000.
Despite selling so many of his guitars to raise money for Crossroads, Clapton tells us he's got plenty of instruments on hand.
