(Classic Rock) Joe Bonamassa says he knows the location of the guitar stolen from Eric Clapton after he'd used it to record the Bluesbreakers' Beano album. The Les Paul Sunburst vanished from a Cream rehearsal in 1966, soon after work had been completed on the LP officially known as Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton.

The instrument has since become something of a legend among equipment fans. The Gibson company made a Beano replica in 2010. Bonamassa - an avid gear collector - tells Guitarist: "It's in a collection on the East Coast of America. That's all I can tell you and that's all I will say.

"It still exists. I haven't seen it, but I have it on good authority from people who have." He adds: "I don't know if Clapton would even want it back at this point. Would he even recognize it 50 years on? I guess so." Read more here.
