Playing The Fool

Cream, "Tales of Brave Ulysses" - Clapton playing The Fool...
...a faithful re-creation of the iconic guitar from1967, based upon artwork commissioned by the late George Harrison of The Beatles, for the giant, world famous, mural painted on the wall of London’s famous Beatles-owned Apple Boutique by the Dutch art collective, known as “The Fool”. The art collective went on to re-create the vibe of the Apple Boutique mural, in miniature, on one of George Harrison’s guitars, which Harrison had given to his friend Eric Clapton. The guitar has come to be known as “The Fool” after its creators. The original guitar was used almost constantly by Eric Clapton in Cream (view photo), and eventually ended up in the hands of legendaryUS performer, Todd Rundgren.
