Just found this and have to ask... who the hell is this guy? Why does he get to fly to New York and play Eric Clapton's guitar, make a video about it, and why do these people think it's a big deal that this guy is there? I'm completely confused. Is this guy ANYBODY? He's wearing a Ween shirt which is pretty cool. But.... yeah... who is he?
Interesting. The one in the video of Clapton playing doesn't seem to be the same guitar being auctioned.
Joseph Heffle
Wow he actually got to play slow hand holy shit
It seems like every iconic guitar being played on US-first is being played by people in short sleeves. From Rob Scallon playing "The Log", to this Strat - existing wear and wear be damned, if a guitar's being sold for $1m, shouldn't long sleeves be required? Gilmour's black strat wasn't carried into the auction under someone's sweaty armpits.
Real relic'ing = the ONLY relic'ing.

They never said it's the same guitar as the one in the footage folks. They're just showing Eric Clapton playing a guitar. The Eric Clapton in the footage is the same Eric Clapton that played this guitar. That part is correct.

I think THIS guitar is not the one EC plays in the footage shown - this one has a small headstock while the one in the video has the large one.

Not the same guitar on the Clapton video. This one is a '57 -ish fixed bridge, 8 screw single layer pick guard with classic '50s pre-CBS head stock with original "Fender" logo, the one in the video has a vibrato bridge, 10 screw triple layer pick guard and large [CBS era] head stock with the fat "Fender" logo. CBS Strats were popular with slide work due to the extra wood for tone. Either this was accompanying the guitar Eric is playing on the video or it's just another one of his quivers he had, but not the same guitar.

Good for you. Great content through a great channel. Saw this shortly from your Klon video. Just as these pieces were meant from their original manufacturers, they were meant from the players and crafters that made them. To be played! Noone forget that, no matter the price tag!

There was a Stradivarian Cello that some guy in an orchestra left sitting on his porch accidentally, crook runs up and grabs it, tries to ride off on a bike and falls and crushes the whole thing. The Cello was worth over a million dollars. The crook threw it in the trash, a woman driving down the road saw the case sitting in the trash and picked it up, she said she could see the trash truck at the end of the street heading that way. She took it home and told her boyfriend to turn the crushed cello (made by Stradivarius) into a bookshelf. for two days he was too lazy to do it, then promised her he'd DEFINITELY do it that day. So she goes to work and sees a news story that a Stradivarian Cello was stolen off some dude's porch and recognized the pictures. She rushes home... and her boyfriend was too lazy to make the bookshelf that day either so he hadn't cut it up yet. They took it to this world renown expert in vintage instruments and he completely repaired the crushed front of the cello as good as new and got it back to the owner, I believe it was all in San Francisco about 15 years ago.

Not exactly the same as the one in the video footage of Clapton, though, is it? Large headstock v. small headstock. Either a different guitar or it had a neck change at some stage.

This guitars headstock is different notice in the video footage it's a larger. The one that is demonstrated has a different neck. Guitar plays good but I doubt whether it is the original. Just check it out.

Dear charlatans: neither the sound, nor the handling of a 1.5 Million Dollar guitar is thousend times better as a 1.500 Dollar guitar and also, neither the sound, nor the handling of a 1.500 Dollar guitar is thousend times worse, than a 1.5 Million Dollar guitar. It`s a typical "brain-fart of a handful of idiots" !!!!!!

That is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Ok can anyone give me an estimate ( How much a 1972 Fender Telecaster Custom ) would be the going rate. Reason is I own one it is a walnut brown with a black pick guard, maple neck. I also have the black original guitar case with the red velvet interiors. In 1973 my parents bought it for me. The guitar case cost $ 80 dollars and the guitar cost $ 375.00 back then. What would it be worth today?

I think many blues and rock guitarists elicit the feeling that makes a fella say "I could do that." And, you can do what they do- which makes it all the more confusing. But if you go back to day one of Clapton, listen to his body of work and creativity the past 55+ years, you may wake up and realize you are dreaming. Every few years, he took it to a new level. Many have played Mozart, but there was only one Mozart. Or George Harrison or BB King. Simple but original in their own way.

If nobody bid on it it ...never-mind. Here is the Eric Clapton, the great philanthropist charity story. I'm having an awful time picturing this...if you want the How Eric Clapton stole 10 thousand dollars of my family money at rehab in Antigua you would not think of him so highly. I hate people that get on social media and undermine someones success, in fact this is a first for me...I think. Guitar gods, eddie vh and jeff beck love him so I should too, but forgiveness hasn't arrived...ed's picks over the guitar any day ..
