Ta Trying to get some people to join that group. I'd give an arm and a leg for his 100 watt Marshalls. They must have been killer cranked up live .

Well a good start for getting his tone is to get one of these for his early tones:
http://www.metroamp.com/amps_jtm45.php

Or for his "later" tone:
http://www.metroamp.com/amps_67_100_watt.php
And you could also put some KT66s in that one, for getting that classic early Super Lead tone!

Good one if you're on a budget:

However, I find that my Orange Rocker 30 can give me a spot on tone!

Great work on collecting all of those infos. But one more thing, I'm interested in his gear from Derek And The Dominos album. I know only that, that he used exclusively his fameous Brownie and maybe some Vox amp(I think so). Someone have sth more to add?

I coulda sworn that Clapton took the paint of the back of the Fool's neck himself, just for ease of playing

P.S. Great threat, any chance of getting a clapton (the later years)?

Well some say he did. However later it's been stated as if it came of itself. The paint did stick very badly and when Harrison recieved it, it was in awful condition. The paint didn't stick well at all and literally came off as Clapton played!

Sorry no meor Clappers for me. Besides Blind Faith (which was more or less late Cream gear) and Derek (mentioned later) I don't know much else! Also not into much of his post Derek & The Dominos stuff.

Will however maybe do Pete Townshend, another GREAT idol of me!

It was Brownie, yes and then an old Fender Tweed Champ, narrow panel, 5F1

Yes, but the 1958 one is HIGHLY figured and the AAA maple tops didn't come until 1959.

Nope, Eric never borrowed a guitar from Keith Richards from what I have heard.

the rangemaster theory is easily debunked by a/b-ing a burst->rangemaster->bluesbreaker setup to the original record. the rangemaster has a real trebly sound that you dont find in the actual record.

I think he might have, this the Keith Richard Burst. Like mentioned Page used it for a Stones session in '64 or '65.





Serial# is 9 3182 which would make it a '59.

I know this will sound very silly and like a tiny detail, BUT that guitar IS missing it's pickguard... Yes I know people often switch them off and on, but from what I know I've only seen Keith Richards with that guitar without a pickguard. Keep in mind he used it in 1965 and Clapton in 1965. Sure, somebody could have put on a pickgaurd on it, but still. It is possible though. But Clapton has rarely spoken of this guitar or so and more or less he's forgotten about it, so I think it wasn't Keith's, since he'd probably mentioned it more if so. He just called it: "The borrowed one".

And yes to me it doesn't sound like a Rangemaster, the tone is very sweet and the Rangemaster is way too agressive and trebly!

When Page borrowed it he had the pickguard on. I know there's at least two pics with Keith playing it with the pickguard on as well. I'm going off the flame too, looks very similar. Anymore pics of Clapton with it?

Not that I know of. He basically only used it for the Windsor Fetsival and some parts of Fresh Cream (if at all), but he used the second one much more.

Hey Gabe,

(or anyone)...do you know off hand any points in Eric's life where he would have preferred or spoke highly of a SS or Hybrid amp?

Just curious. Thanks again...

Well he did use a hybrid Music Man for a while, there's an ad for a Music Man amp. They were amps with a solid state preamp and a tube poweramp. This was to get a very clean tone.



Here it is. It was in the mid 70's sometime.
