Derek Trucks’ Gibson Custom Shop Eric Clapton “Beano” Les Paul

Derek owns one of the Gibson Custom Shop replicas of Eric Clapton’s famed “Beano Burst” Les Paul Standard, which was given to him by Eric himself. The guitar mostly stays home at the studio, but it was used occasionally by both Derek and Susan.

I used a guitar that I stole from Derek that I really love, which is a Custom Shop replica of Eric Clapton’s Beano guitar [as used on the John Mayall’s Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton album].

He had a couple of those made, and he gave one to Derek, but I’ve been playing it a lot.
