    Default Urge to Own That Clapton Guitar Is Contagious, Scientists Find

    I thought the guitar room might enjoy a little science.
    From the New York Times:

    Why would someone pay $959,500 for a used guitar?

    This sort of direct physical contact helps explains why the original Blackie guitar sold for nearly $1 million — Mr. Clapton had played it extensively for more than a decade. But why build an exact replica of the guitar and all its nicks and scratches?

    The replica’s appeal is related to another form of thinking called the law of similarity, Dr. Newman said. That is a belief in what is also called imitative magic: things that resemble each other have similar powers.

    I like the term "imitative magic."







    Don't read this.

    It explains our fascinations with building EVH replicas from all eras...trying to cop a little EVH mojo on the cheap. I think it works too, there's something to this imitative mojo.

    You guys may get a kick out of this but here are the items from the last auction http://www.bonhams.com/usa/auction/19226/ Forget guitars who the hell would pay 7 grand for a used suit.
