    Default Another Rock Legend's replica

    OK...wanted to do something different so started on a Blackie Replica a while back, tought some of the older members might enjoy this a bit.

    Clapton's Blackie, for those who don't know, is the most expensive guitar in the world, that i've heard at least. Sold at Christie's for a tad less then 1 million US a few years ago..

    Nice job Alain.
    Was that a Fender in it's past life?
    Or is it a parts guitar?

    it's a Muskraft body and Neck..they are the only one who makes an accurate Clapton Neck.

    Great job, as always, Alain, your Fender replica relics are top-notch (even if I do hate your guts! LOL!)

    Excellent replica Alain!! I love Blackie and this shows the wear and tear. You should try and tackle Rory Gallagher's Strat!

    Alain you always do a good relic job, and I would believe yours would be a lot less than the $25,000 Fender version.

    not 100% on this, but i was told that the neck he liked was actually an 80's squier neck that was on the first squier models that were briefly made in japan.
