For years, the British artist, star of the group Cream in the 1960s, has been making his guitar roar in concert halls around the world.

Eric Clapton sold around a hundred guitars. This week, one of the most iconic guitars in his collection should go under the hammer at Julien's Auction, during an auction organized from November 16 to 18 in Nashville. Decorated with psychedelic motifs, The Fool experienced Eric Clapton's finest hours within the Cream trio between 1966 and 1968. It will be on sale at the same time as Kurt Cobain's Skystang I, the last guitar used by the leader of Nirvana, March 1, 1994 in Munich.
