Epiphone Eric Clapton "Fool" replica (G-400) LEFT-HANDED LEFTY  Custom Finish

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

Behold: for sale is a LEFT-HANDED replica of Eric Clapton's (and Todd Rundgren's) "Fool" SG. It is an Epiphone G-400 that one Robert "Moondog" Parsons meticulously painted to replicate the artwork applied by the Fool back in Cream's psychedelic days.

This actually has the artwork as Todd Rundgren had it "restored" after he acquired the guitar, the primary difference being the upper bout swirls (brown, instead of the original purple). 

Kindly note: Robert hand-painted the guitar, as was the original instrument, and the detail is astonishingly accurate. My photos do not do it justice, as it is a rainy day and my pics suffer from indoor lighting washout and my lousiness as a photographer. The colors are much more rich in real life. The pics with the Bass VI are more accurate representations.

Also I did not have the back of the neck painted, as I had concerns about playability, so the original finish remains there. Clapton sanded off the paint job to bare wood to salvage the original guitar's playability, and the neck eventually disintegrated from the playing/sweat! I elected not to dive that deep into historical accuracy, for obvious reasons. :) 

The guitar itself is in excellent condition, as I have rarely removed it from its case, rarely played it (and never for long). All original components on the guitar, except for the knobs (changed to match the changeouts on the original instrument). 

If you've always wanted a Fool replica but the price of recreating the artwork left you in sticker-shock disappointment, here is your deal. 

I am also selling my replica of its sister instrument in another listing–– a lefty replica of Jack Bruce's Bass VI (a Bass VI clone), which you can see in a couple of the photos. It is NOT included in this sale. 

Feel free to ask questions. 

I will ship internationally. Shipping cost to be determined. To get an estimate of the cost, figure a 26-pound package, 48x20x8 inches, shipped from Baltimore, MD, USA. Watch out for VAT and other import/customs fees, too, because they are yours to pay.
