    "This guitar was made as a gift for Mr Clapton for the occasion of his performance in Prague, Czech Republic, in summer 2006....This guitar was designed by Mr Stefan Milkov, famous Czech sculptor. He designed also the Telecaster style guitar given to Mr Billy Gibbons in 1996 when ZZ Top were in Prague. The wood used is of the Czech origin, well naturally aged for more than 10 years. The guitar is total [sic] handmade, including the polishing of the finish...[in our] workshop situated in the little town Jilove near Prague. We make only custom guitars and basses, originals made according to proposals of customers."
