Six-String Stories

The Crossroads Auction Guitars 1999-2011

Eric Clapton

'One by one these guitars were the chapters of my life.' Eric Clapton

Beginning with his blues roots and early days, Clapton’s signed limited edition documents his entire career through the tools of his trade: his guitars. SIX-STRING STORIES is told through Clapton’s own words, with background information for each instrument and archival photography spanning five decades.

‘They belong to a very well-loved family.’ Eric Clapton

Nearly 300 pieces from Clapton’s collection, sold across three Crossroads auctions, are brought together here for the very first time. SIX-STRING STORIES presents a ‘family tree’, making connections and placing Clapton’s instruments and amps in the chronology of his career.
