Eric Clapton's 'Blackie'
Eric Clapton's beloved "Blackie," a customized Fifties Fender Stratocaster, is actually assembled from parts of three Strats the guitarist bought at a Nashville shop in the Seventies. After Clapton retired the guitar in the mid-Eighties, it brought a then-record $959,500 in 2004 at an auction supporting Crossroads, the guitarist's rehab center.
