George Harrison’s First Electric Guitar Heading To Auction

George Harrison’s first ever electric guitar is heading to auction. According to auction house Julien’s Auctions, the guitar was played by Harrison at the Hoffner Club 40 when The Beatles played around Liverpool, England, as The Quarrymen. Harrison donated the guitar to a band competition in 1965 and it was won by a member of a German band who died in 2017. His widow is putting it up for auction. Julien’s Auctions estimates that the guitar should sell for between $200,000 and $300,000. A 1965 Fender Telecaster owned by The Band’s Robbie Robertson played by Harrison, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan is also on the block and estimated to sell between $400,000 and $600,000. The auction will take place at New York’s Hard Rock Cafe on May 19. Copyright(c) 2018 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
