    I'm a little weirded out that he's selling his black Strat, but happy he's keeping his Telecaster.

    Nice to see the proceeds are going to his charitable trust and will hopefully be used to do good.

    Unless the fingers are included ..... I'm out. And the Ferrari has to have "once-a-month" rights.

    I thought he still owned the 1964 250 GTO.
    I don't care about the F40.

    I’m only half kidding with this.
    When Clapton auctioned off his late 80’s dual SLO-100 rig complete with custom Pete Cornish effects and switching system I really had a long hard look at it. When I see what it sold for I kick myself...but then again...I’m not going to be playing any stadiums...in this life.

    I dunno, did he ever get his Ferrari fixed up or does he still have a lot of pricey repairs to do?

    Something tells me he'll be fine either way...

    He's auctioning off 120 guitars. I think these guitars could bring in north of $10M. The Black Strat alone, will sell for over $1M.

    I think this is pretty damn awesome of him, considering the value and provenance of some of these instruments.

    I think he’s got a few and keeps them squirrelled away in an aircraft hangar somewhere down south.

    I'm also envisioning a James Bond Supervillain-style underground lair with one hell of a jam room.
