George Harrison's guitar presumes to collect up to 400K pounds at auction
The instrument, which is being sold by a UK private collector, will be auctioned at Gardiner Houlgate in Corsham, Wiltshire, on September 12, reported BBC.
"This guitar is something very special - a direct link to the early days of Beatlemania and those era-defining gigs at the Cavern Club. Just touching it makes your fingers tingle. We're expecting interest from right around the world. It's very rare for one of George Harrison's guitars to come up for auction.
"In this case, we have excellent provenance including letters and photographs. The guitar is also documented in books about the Beatles," auctioneer Luke Hobbs said.
After Harrison returned the Maton guitar to the repair shop, it was bought by Roy Barber, the guitarist with Dave Berry And The Cruisers, who went on to give hits with Memphis, Tennessee and The Crying Game.
