Douglas Adams' guitar collection on sale

Interesting sale with a great bit of history attached to them - Douglas Adams' guitar collection. I reckon the prices are well over the top but no doubt some fans will think the connection is worth paying for. Never realised Douglas Adams was a lefty.

Re: Douglas Adams' guitar collection on sale

Polly Samson (David Gilmour's wife) tweeted a couple of years ago something like "Ten years ago Douglas Adams died, but we still keep a left-handed acoustic guitar ready in the studio just in case he didn't."

Freakin' wow.

Paul McCartney can scoop up a lot of those. I don't often see left handed Martins, especially ones as nice as those listed. At a GC they might have a lower end, satin finished lefty and then only rarely.

That's awesome.

Also, I didn't know he was a guitarist either.
