I seem to recall EC saying that Blackie was worn to the point of being unplayable.

Interesting that GC has matched the neck exactly, if it is indeed 'unplayable'.

I do like the EC board I installed in my Strat. Kicks up the mids to try to make it sound like an LP. Best $99 upgrade ever.

I don't know who would pay that kinda coin for a sig guitar. Baffles the mind.

I never much liked anything Clapton did in the Blackie era anyway.

Clapton + Gibson + Marshall = bliss

Clapton + Fender + Fender = meh

Might have had something to do with switching from pot to coke too.
heroine to liqour to coke.

and yeah, I totally agree.

Whoever stole clapton's beano burst did not know the decades of clapton dribble that they unleased upon the world

I've seen two of those jeff beck guitars this year. One in Vegas in Sept and one in Vancouver 3 days ago.
Both were exactly the same !
same scratch, same wear spot.

Isn't same-ness just another name for mass production?

I'm like you all. I'm proud of the wear spots that I've been able to put on a guitar and I don't feel any connection with wear that someone else has done.

But I am happy that they can make money for charity. I guess that's what I would hope for, that one of my guitars, one day, would be worth a bunch of money to a good charity. That would make this foolishness ok.
