In Old Blue's review:

"Alternatively, Derek picked up a black SG he had never used before for this one."

The reviewer may have meant red instead of black...any ideas?

I'm on it, I got a bud that was there and just sent him an email asking him to verify Derek playing a black SG.
He did mention the other night about Eric playing a Les Paul for a while ( hallelujah !)
He called me just hours after the show.


I really enjoyed this review crowesmule. Thanks for posting it.

Can the "Fool" be far behind? Wow, how great would it be to hear EC and Derek both playing SGs? I like the EC strat, but I'm an SG lover deep down.

1. I need to see a pic of this black sg

2. The fool is currently not in Claptons possession, so there is no chance of seeing it, or at least the original

I was at there, 12/9 final show of Eric & Derek Japan Tour, and he really has played black SG but only on "Motherless Children".
On other songs, he played red SG as usual.
As you know, Motherless Chidiren needs different tuning (Open A) from his normal tuning (Open E), so I think he prepare black SG for it.
Really great show!

Thanks Masahiko.
In the latest issue of Hittin The Note Magazine, Derek goes into his "job" on Motherless Children...says he's more on the line of sticking to a script on this song .

I'd like to see Clapton pull out the 355 I think it is? that he used to play. Really I just like to see him play anything. I love his standard strat tone, but I'd love to see an SG or a Les Paul for something a little different

It's so sorry that I didn't take any pics from the show.
In Japan, taking photos among the shows are so difficult, also I did stealth recording and have no hands to take pics.
So sorry.

Not too dang long ago.



I touched it (I know I should not have) at the RRHOF about ten years ago when they had a phenomenal psychedelic era exhibit. Also touched Lennon's Sgt Pepper jacket, Stephen Stills' suede poncho he wore at Woodstock. They also had a full complement of ABB instruments, including a red SG with Duane spelled out in fret wire hammered in to the back.

^ Nice photoshop job above minus the corners of the strat sticking out To what I believe, Todd Rundgren (dunno how to spell it nor do I feel like checking) owns it, and not in a legitimate manner either. Hasnt been in Claptons hands for quite a while. Anyways, anyone see any pics yet of this black sg? Wondering if its a newer standard sg with a full face pickguard or what.

Nice catch on that pic!

I did get to see the actual guitar at RRHOF around 98. Man I wish they could bring that exhibit back together. It is a must-see.
