Eric Clapton was seen playing this guitar in the promotional video for Tears in Heaven, released as a single from the soundtrack album to the Lili Zanuck film Rush in 1991. In the video, Clapton is seen performing on the rehearsal set for the 1991 George Harrison Japan tour at Bray Studios. However, it is most recognisable from its appearance on MTV's Unplugged in January 1992, when Eric Clapton used it to play the opening number Signe as well as Tears in Heaven and Circus Left Town. Clapton also used this guitar for the solo performance of Tears In Heaven at the end of a television special in 1992 featuring an exclusive interview with the British TV presenter Sue Lawley, filmed at his London home. This guitar was also used for performing Tears In Heaven, Circus Left Town and Signe during the 1992 UK Tour which incorporated the 12 show season at the Royal Albert Hall in February/March.more
