Eric Clapton’s Custom-Made Hermès Crocodile Guitar Case

Eric Clapton’s custom Hermès guitar case, designed specifically for him and his Martin 00028 EC signature acoustic guitar.  Similar to Karl Lagerfeld’s custom LV iPod trunk, which I featured a few days ago (info here), the case was produced as part of the French fashion house’s Special Orders program which, for the right price, can produce everything from a handbag to a bespoke interior for a Rolls-Royce.  The shell of the case is handmade of poplar wood from Nazareth, Pennsylvania and is covered in the world’s finest matte-finish crocodile skin, while the inside is lined with blue silk velvet.  Information regarding the cost is currently unavailable, however, estimates seem to fall around $100,000.
