[Eric Clapton](http://equipboard.com/pros/eric-clapton) gifted a 1957 Les Paul Standard to George Harrison in 1968. This guitar started as a goldtop but was refinished to cherry red, earning it the nickname "Lucy" after Lucille Ball, at the Gibson Kalamazoo factory. Harrison said, “[Eric and I] used to hang out such a lot at that period, and Eric gave me a fantastic Les Paul guitar, which is the one he plays on [“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”]. So it worked out well.”more
