The guitar being presented in this incredible auction offering can best be described as a perfect storm of provenance and prominence. The offered sunburst Custom Shop Fender Strat was assembled specifically under the technical guidance of Clapton himself and was used prominently as one of the primary guitars throughout Clapton's 2014 70th Birthday World Tour schedule - and, perhaps even more notably, during his historic Royal Albert Hall "Slowhand at 70" performance in 2015. With this very guitar, Clapton moved and dazzled crowds around the globe playing such iconic musical masterpieces as "I Shot the Sheriff", "Layla", "Crossroads" and "Cocaine", just to name a few. Arguably one of the most well documented Clapton guitars ever offered, this six-string beauty sources direct from the legend himself and is accompanied by a signed Letter of Provenance from "Slowhand" himself, which is also further supported with a candid photo of Clapton in his home posing with this exact guitar. A simple search of "Eric Clapton 2014 World Tour" or "Eric Clapton Royal Albert Hall" will generate an array of photos and videos--many of which show Clapton playing this very instrument. The Royal Albert Hall performance was even released as a CD & DVD set! Clapton guitars are a Holy Grail of rock relics, and of those that have made it to the market, few have showcased the stellar provenance or career significance of this investment-grade instrument.
