Guitar sells at 965K...

If you ever feel your spending too much on guitars, this makes what we pay seem like peanuts...

New record paid for a guitar at auction.....

Re: Guitar sells at 965K...

I remember seeing a show about that guitar over a year ago. It wasn't a show solely about guitars, but more like a history show. The premise was people would contact the show about items in their possession that they think are historically important, then the show would send "experts" to investigate the validity of the claim. I don't quite remember the result, but due to this story, maybe it was authenticated.

IIRC it was a History Detectives item and was authenticated.

I can't believe it outpriced "Blackie"

I wouldn't have paid 10k even if it meant Dylan moved in with me............

No guitar will ever be as iconic as Dave Gilmour's black strat. If this guitar was so famous, I would have known about it.

Re: Guitar sells at 965K...

This is where the separate worlds of rock and roll and folk merged in a not so nice way judging from the crowd. It was a huge moment in both rock and folk histories. This guitar is worth every penny considering a strat worth 3 to 4 times the Dylan guitar with many rockstar signatures for tsunami relief only had the signatures provenance and not the addition of a moment in history like Dylan's or Hendrix' burnt Monterey strat. Anyway the guitar worth nearly 4 million was a Mexican made Fender Standard Stratocaster but that's besides the point and it's unlikely that so many legendary rockers will ever be in the same room at one time all with pens:

Other than that the Dylan guitar is a pre-CBS Stratocaster which is nice and in the tens of thousands at most and in a common color. Clapton's black strat is also pre-CBS and slightly older but in a common black finish. The "it" factor for Dylan is definitely the Newport incident and will bring in more than any other Dylan owned strat.

Re: Guitar sells at 965K...

There is no doubting the historic significance of that thing not to mention a pristine vintage Strat is worth a bunch on it's own....Is it worth that much? Maybe maybe not but obviously it was to somebody. Remember it had handwritten songs in the case as well...
