Great deals on musical instruments

Eric Clapton will be auctioning off a number of electric guitars to raise money for charity.

Among the items will be a 2008 Fender Stratocaster Eric Clapton signature model, as well as a 2004 Martin 000-ECHF Bellezza Bianca.

With over 70 guitars and 70 amps up for sale, there will be plenty of options for people to choose from.

All of the money raised from the auction will go the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, which is a drug and alcohol addiction centre founded by the star himself.

Stephanie Connell, head of entertainment memorabilia at Bonhams - which is the location of the sale - said: "We are delighted to be offering such a fantastic collection of guitars and amps from such an iconic musician and hope the auction will raise a lot of money for this worthwhile cause."

It is the third time Clapton, famous for songs such as Tears in Heaven, has held the event and he hopes it can generate a lot of money for the good cause.

The artist - who has the nickname Slowhand - is famed for his playing with Gibson guitars throughout his career.
