A collection of 29 guitars owned and used by Eric Clapton are up for sale.

Nashville’s Gruhn Guitars in Tennessee are offering a variety of vintage and modern guitars, including a 1941 Martin 000-45 Clapton purchased from Gruhn in 2005, up for $150,000. A two-tone sunburst finish 2014 Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster, one of his main guitars in 2014, is also available for $42,500.

There are also two pre-World War Two Martin acoustic guitars, Custom Shop/Masterbuilt Fender Stratocasters, Gretsch, Roland, and Gibson electric solidbody and hollowbody guitars, vintage and modern D’Angelico guitars and an Epiphone Les Paul autographed by Les Paul.

Gruhn Guitars CEO George Gruhn tells: “Eric Clapton first visited my shop in 1970 when Derek & the Dominos performed on The Johnny Cash Show. He assembled his famous ‘Blackie’ Stratocaster using components from the four Stratocasters he bought from me and parts he purchased from Sho-Bud Guitars around the corner from my shop the same day.

“Over the years, Eric and I have remained in touch, made a good number of instrument deals, and he has frequently visited Gruhn Guitars when he passes through Nashville. It is very meaningful to have a friend like Eric Clapton who shares my love of guitars and uses the instrument to such great effect.

“Everyone at Gruhn Guitars feels incredibly honored to represent him in offering a group of very fine instruments from his collection.”
