I've never seen him with anything besides his strat. Like, I like how good ol' slowhand makes it sound, but really does he use his gibsons or anything like that anymore?

He hasn't used anything as his main guitar except a Strat since Jimi Hendrix died.

because a could-be is a maybe who is reaching for a star.
I'd rather be a has-been than a might-have-been, by far;
for a might-have-been has never been, but a has was once an are."

he uses a non fender guitar every time he plays acoustic. It's always a Martin.

he used his gibson ES335 in a concert i think in hyde park in the 90s. he used that guitar in the album From the Cradle.

also he uses acoustic guitars from Martin. in his 2001 Reptile tour, he used his gibson (iono the model) jazz guitar for some songs like reptile too.

You can see him using the ES-335 here, if you don't believe him.

The only guitar I've seen him use other than his Strat recently on videos were either his acoustics (Martins of course) or the ES-335.

If it were his favorite, why would he have played the Strat pretty much exclusively for over 30 years???

I really don't think it's an endorsement... do you really think Clapton needs endorsement money?


By the way... There's already a Clapton thread.
