Eric Clapton’s 1988 Guild Songbird Amber

Clapton was seen playing this guitar on the concert played at Shoreline Amphitheatre, San Francisco, USA, on September 21st, 1988. He used it for the song “Can’t Find My Way Home”, and both him and Mark Knopfler who joined him on stage, used the exact same model that night.

The guitar was one of the many that were auctioned by Clapton in 2011, in aid of The Crossroads Center – a drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation center located on the Caribbean island of Antigua. The official posting of the auction of the Guild can be found over at Bonhams’ website [Lot 104 -A LATE 1988 GUILD SONGBIRD AMBER, Serial No. KK000365]. The guitar was sold for $3,416.
