'These guitars have been really good tools; they're not just museum pieces. They all have a soul and they all come alive.' Eric Clapton

Eric recalls the instruments he bought to emulate his heroes, the guitars with unknown origins that became their own legend, the ones that never left his side, and the legacy they left behind.

You can see and hear the guitars in use, with playlists and concert dates accompanying the instruments used on records and at public appearances. Our 50-year documentation of Clapton's performance history, included within the book, allows you to further reference the guitars against Clapton's life's work. 

Historical and technical information is provided for every piece of Clapton's vast collection to complete the story behind each guitar.
