Eric Clapton – Cream – 1967
A detailed gear diagram of Eric Clapton's Cream stage setup that traces the signal flow of the equipment in his 1967 guitar rig.
This rig was compiled from various concert photos, live footage, and old magazine interviews. Any additional information and insight is welcomed - and encouraged. While Clapton also played Gibson Les Pauls during his time with Cream (most notably a Gibson Black Beauty, and a sunburst Gibson Les Paul - borrowed from Andy Summers, who later went onto fame with The Police), this rig focuses on a brief moment during late 1967 and the first half of 1968, where the Gibson SG "The Fool" guitar saw a lot of stage time. We are still researching the strings and picks used during this period.
