The blues-rock guitarist, singer, song writer and composer came into contact with the musical instrument while on a visit to Norfolk.

It is also signed by Mike Rutherford from Genesis and Procol Harum singer Gary Brooker, the Norfolk Eastern Daily Press reports.

The guitar was bought by a local collector, who handed over £500 to secure the deal.

Meanwhile, another guitar, this one signed by American rockers Green Day, was auctioned for £840 at the same event, which was held to raise money for charity Children with Leukaemia.

In addition to signed instruments, a host of other items were for sale, including a DVD of a Cream reunion at the Albert Hall signed by Clapton.

A total of more than £6,000 was raised through the sale of the musical memorabilia, as well as a gig featuring performances from five bands.
