I heard Clapton had one of these custom made

The idea of hollowing out an electric guitar body and filling it with cocaine must have occurred to some Spinal Tap-ian rocker dude in the last several decades. Probably several. "If the cocaine makes my brain this awesome," I can imagine them thinking, "it should make my tone fucking kill." 

But I've never known such a wondrous instrument to actually exist until now. Sadly, the guys who made it seem to have done it not in the service of wicked tone, but for the far more mundane purpose of smuggling drugs. The photos show that the guitar was a black Strat, but there's no word as to whether or not that particular model was chosen as a tribute to Eric Clapton.
