Collector's Call Episode 6 Web Extras: A doubleneck Gibson guitar and an original Fender
Take a tour through one of the most impressive guitar collections on the planet.
Even if you don't know guitarist Jim Peterik, you certainly recognize one of his riffs. As the guitarist in Survivor, he was known for hit songs like "Eye of the Tiger," including that iconic, chugging opening heard in the Rocky films. Peterik's rock cred also stretches to his work with .38 Special and the Ides of March.
His collection of 193 guitars contains some true rarities, including some of the earliest models of electric guitars, with some individual instruments in the six figures.
1. Episode 6 Extra: Gibson EDS-1275 Doubleneck
You could climb a "Stairway to Heaven" with this baby, but it does weigh a hefty 15 pounds.
2. Episode 6 Extra: 1954 Fender Stratocaster
This gorgeous electric guitar, similar to the one used by Buddy Holly, comes from the first year of production.
