Eric Clapton's 'Blackie' Fender Stratocaster is the electric guitar musicians would most like to own.

This is according to a poll carried out by Allianz Musical Insurance at Guitar Nation Live, which found the instrument was more desired than close competitors such as Jimmy Page's double-neck Gibson guitar and the Stratocaster played by Stevie Ray Vaughan.

The top five also included places for the electric guitar designed and owned by Les Paul, as well as Brian May's Red Special.

Robin Stagg, Allianz Musical Insurance's claims manager and an electric guitar player himself, said: "It's great to see that the UK still has a strong rock star tradition."

Earlier this month, Gibson announced it is going to recreate another famous instrument used by Clapton.

His Les Paul 'Beano' is to be reproduced by the company, with the guitar notably used on the John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers album Blues Breakers with Eric Clapton.
