How much would you pay for a guitar that was played by both John Lennon AND George Harrison? Well, pull out that checkbook, there’s one going up for bids in May.
The custom-built VOX guitar used around the time of Magical Mystery Tour is expected to sell for at least $200,000. George practiced “I Am the Walrus” on it in 1967 and John played it during a videotaping for “Hello, Goodbye” that same year. It’s part of (coincidentally) Julien’s Auctions’ Music Icons auction, set for May 18th. Get more details at JuliensAuctions.com.
Other Beatles items include rare signed items, novelty and collectible Beatles items, an archive of Beatles “Butcher” cover images, proofs, and alternative album cover designs as well as a first AND second state Butcher album cover. This auction holds something for every Beatles fan.
