Blackie was the name of Eric Clapton's guitar that he used all throughout the 70's and 80's.
Before the Tsunami relief guitar sold, it was the previous Record Setter

QUOTE ( Wikipedia)
In 2004, Blackie was sold for $959,500 at a Christie's auction to support the Crossroads Centre, a drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation centre founded by Clapton. The final bid was cast by the United States nationwide music equipment chain Guitar Center, causing Clapton's guitar to set the record as the world's most expensive. (In 2006, another Stratocaster, signed by a large group of celebrities, including Clapton, was auctioned to benefit the victims of the 2004 Asian Tsunami, selling for $2.6 million, shattering "Blackie"'s record.)

It must be a real credit to the guitar maker when one of their first instruments sells for sucha high value. gives you a huge place in the world. Imagining the feeling almost makes me want to start making guitars biggrin.gif

It is shocking to see what vintage gear has for price tags. I have been going to the bookstore on sundays , getting coffee with my wife and we just read for a few hours. My new favorite magazine is Vintage Guitar. It showcases vintage gear from guitars and amps to effects and recording gear. Most of the advertisements in the mag are for boutique type guitar shops that carry mostly vintage gear and they all have price lists. They had an article with an amp tech that used to work with many huge bands. He now is one of the foremost authorities on vintage tubes. Anyway this guy bought 2 early 50's Gibsons. When the reporter asked how much he paid, he said "my only comment is, they were more than home". I can highly recommend checking out this mag if you are interested in the vintage price market. It's a really good read and some of the pics are cool too, for me at least who will most likely never see some of the stuff in the "flesh". Anyway, check out the mag, you won't be disappointed in the vintage stuff smile.gif

I think this is ridiculous: Fender EVH Frankenstein 220.000:-, browse down a bit.
Closeup picture

That would be close to 22000 euro. It's ugly and it's a replica! It's a raped guitar! It's abused. And it's... and it's... I can't find the words for it.

Must be the biggest ripoff ever. If you want that guitar, you'd be much better off making it yourself...

For all that money you can get yourself a guitar-production-custom-shop! I don't see a point in buying such a guitar!
