Pretty specific thing to have on your bucket list. Is playing famous people's guitar something you're into? Lol😉

I’m just glad the guitar got to be played one more time chances are it’ll probably end up in somebody’s collection and never played again. Also love the fact that it’s a hard tail.
Is it a good cheap beginner guitar ?

Just to let you know. This is not Eric's "Brownie". There are videos that show you the back of Eric's has a spring guard which this guitar does not have. Also, there is also a screw in the pick guard at the top of the neck pickup that I assumed was added by Eric that is not on this guitar....NICE TRY

ha! this very ordinary strat, once played by an ageing racist has-been, drew precisely zero bids, it really isn't a 1.5million guitar

It's $1,498,000 for Clapton and $2000 is the real value :)

Is this the Eric Clapton guitar that didn't get a single bid? What did you do to it??? Lol.

Was the headstock replaced? In the video of Eric Clapton playing his Strat his guitar had the fat 1970’s headstock. This guitar’s headstock is much thinner.

May have not been worth a million dollarsbut worth more if you left it at Clapton being the last one to play it.

It's a guitar! Owned by a very influential guitarist. It didn't get any bids because it's not worth a million dollars. I'm sure Eric, whom I've met, would much rather you pay a couple of thousand for it and send them rest of the money to feed the hungry!

It is shocking what some people will pay for a name. My 1969 Gibson Les Paul Standard gold top was appraised at $14,136.84 usd. If Eric Clapton touched it I'd be a millionaire.

How come the video at 7:59 of Clapton playing this guitar show it with the larger 70s style headstock, yet when you're playing it in the studio it's got the proper 50s neck?

1.5 mill ?? Fucking crazy. Clapton ?? He’s ok player. Regardless his stile. Ain’t worth more than a average guitar folks .. 1200 bx. ?? American strat. There street guitarist that blows Clapton far and away .:. In my mind he’s an average guitarist. .. oh well. Good luck to the buyer .. 1.5 mill ?? Ha.

Not only playing Clapton's guitar with Van Halen's pick, you are doing so wearing a Ween shirt. That is fucking awesome!

Wait, what's special about this guitar? Did it cure cancer? Did it get me a raise from my job? Did it prevent my ex girlfriend from lying to me? Did it help pay my rent? Nope,nope,nope and (you guessed it, nope)......oh, oh Eric Clapton played and this guy played it, for it's age, sound and rarity. 30k max. That's if I had 30k I just absolutely couldn't use for anything else. Otherwise take Clapton away and it's an 8k.

It literally gave me chills watching you open that case. I'd kill everyone of my friends to be able to play that. It would also be the only time ever having no friends came in handy.
Without a gf I also come in handy
Dude ...... absolutely incredible opportunity!!!!! 😱🤯😍 I’m so freakin jealous I’d be star struck just by the smell inside the case

Cool video. Noticed that on the video at the end, the strat that Clapton is playing has a CBS headstock. Did he change the neck, or is that a different guitar altogether?

The guitar in the Clapton clip shown has a big headstock and a bullit truss rod most likely a 3 bolt neck. Seems kinda odd

I CAN GUARANTEE that if you put a Chines copy of that guitar into the hands of Taylor or any other accomplished guitarist, that Chinese copy will sound EXACTLY the same, so don't fall for the HPYE of some GODDAMN auction house looking to screw you out of your money.

More than the guitar the amplifier must be in a million too. Even if you have the most expensive guitar but you have an ugly amp it won't work. But if you have an excellent guitar amp a cheap guitar will sound a million.
