    Carlos Santana Personally-Owned and Signed 1991 Tom Anderson Guitarworks Classic Model Guitar. A gorgeous black finish, double cutaway guitar, Serial Number 07-08-91P, signed in silver paint pen on the lower bass bout by Carlos Santana. It features one double coil and two single coil pickups, a swamp ash body and Birdseye maple neck, chrome hardware, a Kahler locking nut, Kahler Steeler bridge, heavy frets, and a pearloid pickguard. Custom-fitted hard case included. Excellent condition save for some minor dings and a bit of buckle rash on the back.

    This guitar was donated by Carlos Santana to Eric Clapton's second Crossroads Guitar Auction (Lot 59) in June 2004 where it was purchased by our consignor. Copies of the catalog page and invoice are included. This was the auction where Clapton sold his beloved "Blackie" Stratocaster, his red 1964 Gibson ES-335, and 54 other instruments from his personal collection. Many of his famous friends also donated their guitars to raise money for the Crossroads Centre, a drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation facility founded by Clapton, in Antigua. As it says in the catalog notes: "Carlos Santana bought this guitar in Los Angeles in 1991. According to him, it was bought for his private and personal collection for use at home." Wouldn't this beautiful instrument look great in your home?
