PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple I want this guitar. dreyfus2 More details here: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/eric-clapton-plays-and-talks-at-his-london-home-premiere-20130205Very nice indeed, but $15k is a bit proud… Phos0.99 I’ve been playing quite long enough (40+ years) to be able to discern and appreciate subtle differences in guitars. But I can’t for the life of me understand the attraction to an overpriced “collectible” like this. There’s probably close to a dozen other guitars I’d put in my arsenal for that kind of money, rather than just one. I think of all the different tones and feels I’d have access to, as opposed to one guitar I’d be afraid to get a little dust and smoke film on.
