For all the Bob Dylan fans with deep pockets: here’s your chance to nab a slice of history.
An historically significant guitar from the collection of Bob Dylan is about to be auctioned. The bidding will start at 300k.
The Martin acoustic comes with its fair share of historical provenance. It featured heavily in his sets from the late 60s to the mid 70s, including the George Harrison’s Concert for Bangladesh.
At a starting price of $300,000 though, only the most elite of collectors be battling it out for the guitar.
According to the current owner Larry Cragg, who was Dylan’s guitar repairman and who bought it for $500, “It has the same bridge pins, everything is just like it was when he had it: same case and everything, just like it was 40 years ago”.
So, if you’re planning to inherit a substantial amount of cash in the next few days, head on over to Heritage Auctions and get yourself a piece of history.
