Eric Clapton is offering a huge portion of his collection of guitars and amps for auction by Bonham's in New York on Wednesday 9th March 2011: http://www.bonhams.com/usa/home/"The auction is being held to benefit The Crossroads Centre, Antigua. A spokesman for the Centre says, 'The Crossroads Centre is very excited to be the beneficiary of Eric Clapton's guitar and amp auction at Bonhams which will directly assist those who are in need of addiction treatment. As we know, recovery from addiction is possible and with quality treatment and support, is often lifesaving.' "
I don't see any gypsy guitars, but there are some very nice archtops and resophonics in the collection, along with numerous electrics and flattops, one flamenco guitar, and a ton of amps.
If this is part
of his collection, how many guitars does the man have? Jeez, he's auctioning
ten times as many guitars as I own
