    Six-String Stories - Eric Clapton: The Crossroads Guitars Deluxe Signed Limited Edition (#1132/2000) Hardcover Book. This hand-bound leather book, with gold and silver blocking, is housed in a silk-screened buckram slipcase. In his own words, and through archival photographs of a 50-year gigography, we see his story, from his blues roots and early days to present. This signed limited edition documents his entire career through the tools of his trade: his guitars. With background information for each instrument and photography spanning five decades (images of nearly 300 pieces from Clapton's collection), these guitars were sold during three "Crossroads" auctions, are brought together here for the very first time, in one anthology. Six-String Stories presents a "family tree", making connections between Clapton's instruments and amps, and placing them in the chronology of his career. A bookplate mounted inside the book has been signed by Eric Clapton. Wow! In Excellent condition.
