Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    A copy of a statement accompanying this lot confirms that the guitar was one of just eleven various custom guitars made in 1976/77 by John Fadden and Lynn Ellsworth. It was purchased by the vendor in March 1980, after being donated by Eric Clapton as one of the items in Capital Radio's 'Help A London Child' charity event.

    In 1992, the vendor was involved with organising the lighting for Eric Clapton's New Year's Eve charity concert, held in Woking, Surrey, and took this opportunity to get the guitar autographed.
