Eric Clapton - 1970s Built 'Blackie' Miniature Guitar Replica


Eric Patrick Clapton CBE was born on March 30th 1945 in Ripley England. He would go on to be one of the world's most renowned guitar players and to some of his most ardent fans, he would even be considered 'God'!

The young Clapton would discover the music of legendary American Blues players like Muddy Waters, Brownie Magee and Lightning Hopkins and from that moment he would dedicate his life and playing to his beloved Blues.

'Blackie' then, is a composite of three different guitars, comprising the body and scratch plate of one, the neck of another and the pickups of yet another one. This self-assembled guitar would go on to be Clapton's most used instrument right through the 70s and into the 80s, and it would survive with remarkably few alterations or repairs right up to it's retirement in the 90s.

In 2004, Clapton decided to auction a large part of his guitar collection to raise money for his Crossroads Foundation, 'Blackie' was one of the precious instruments he parted with. The guitar set a new world auction record for a guitar, selling for an unbelievable $959,500. Not bad for a DIY project!
