If you are a guitar aficionado, you only need one word to recognize this guitar – Blackie. For years, this was the guitar that Eric Clapton toured with. Amazingly, it’s not a particular vintage – this is known as a “parts” guitar. It has a neck from one place, body from somewhere else, pickups, bridge, tuners… well you get the picture. Truly a whole that is much greater than the sum of the parts.Interestingly when he did the “Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs” album, he didn’t play through a Marshall stack – he played thru a 5 watt Fender Champ Amp.
