    They are the real deal loaned to the Hall.
    Claptons Blackie and a few other guitars are on loan there right now. Without these guitars the guitar collection is lacking big time. Its more cloths and hand written lyrics, stuff like that. The amp collection is lame. Its not what I imagined.

    Blackmore still has his original Oly White '74 that was his main stage guitar from '79 through to the late eighties and the first to wear his now signature look when he modded it with Schecter F500Ts in black with the black knobs and tips in a mint guard.

    That's recorded a few decent tunes and seen a few stages.

    After it had his scalloping planed out in error during a refret and he did it again he reckons it's now too thin to play.

    Uli Jon Roth has Hendrix's '68 somewhere in the back of his closet of course.

    I guess there's lots of strats out there in private hands that could be gathered together for a huge display if there was the will and demand.

    Can you imagine your own top 10 ... or 20?

    P'raps in 2024 for the 70th. It'd be nice to see it tour.

    I’ve been to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame years ago while in town on a business trip. I really enjoyed it, and would love to go back when I wasn’t so rushed.

    I saw SRV in 1985 in Stillwater Oklahoma. He, Eddie Van Halen (1984), and Zig Ziglar are the three people who owned the stage more than any other performers I've ever witnessed.
