Eric Clapton’s Danelectro 3021 Shorthorn

This guitar was seen during the Blind Faith rehearsals in early 1969, although it is not known whether Eric ever used the guitar with the band in a live or a studio setting. Aside from its appearance on these photos, everything else about this guitar is a mystery. It is apparent that it featured some kind of psychedelic finish which could’ve been done by the same people who painted his SG, but we couldn’t find anything that would confirm (or deny) this.

The only other interesting thing about this guitar is that recently Danelectro released a tribute model based on it named DC59O-PSY. Unfortunately, no additional info regarding the guitar’s history was revealed.
