Expensive guitar cases

If you can remember the 70`s then you`ll remember a time when Eric Clapton used to wear faded jeans and black waistcoat. He was still smoking, drinking and crashing the odd Ferrari – but in one biography I read he claimed to be given an envelope of cash for wages at the end of each week. Well those were the days…

Here`s Eric’s  croc skin $100,000 dollar case for his  signature Martin 00028 EC acoustic guitar with a rich matte-finish croc skin adorning the exterior of the case. The shell of the case is made from poplar wood source from Nazareth, Pennsylvania and is completed with a blue silk velvet liner. Estimates for the case’s cost are tabulated at approximately $100,000.  The guitar is only $4349.00.


000 size body, rosewood back & sides, sitka spruce top with vintage toner, scalloped braces, ebony bridge, maple bridge plate, herringbone trim & rosette, ivoroid binding, 24.9″ scale, 1-3/4″ nut width, V-shaped neck with adjustable truss rod, open vintage style tuners, ebony fretboard with diamond & square inlays, EC’s pearl signature at 19th fret, standard saddle (not long), 2-1/4″ string spacing. Vintage “Geib” style archtop wooden case.

If youve a little less to spend but still desire the quality and protection of a case that can tough it out at the airport or on the road then have alook at ROCK HARD CASES.

Well, That`s all folks,
