Eric Clapton's Guitars Sell For Millions Of $$$ At Auction!

eric clapton sells guitars for millions

And we thought Stephen Colbert's self-portrait sold for a lot of money…

At a Bonhams New York auction yesterday, Eric Clapton's 75 guitars and 55 amps sold for a total of $2.15 million! WOW!

Best part about it? The proceeds are going to benefit "a drug and alcohol treatment center Clapton founded in the West Indies."

As a recovered addict himself, Clapton formed nonprofit Crossroads Centre in Antigua in '98 in an effort to give back.

Good for you, Eric! This is a wonderful gesture! You've gained some serious points in our book for this one.

We still can't get over that number! $2.15 million! Fantastic!

How much would U pay for an Eric Clapton guitar?
