The guitar played by George Harrison at The Beatles’ last ever gig at Cavern Club is set to go under the hammer. It’s expected to fetch somewhere £300 – 400,000, which is roughly AU$525,000 – 700,000.
A guitar-shaped slice of history: the 1963 Maton Mastersound MS-500 played by George Harrison at their last Cavern Club gig is set to go up for auction in September.
Maton is the iconic Australian brand that has long been the standard for acoustic guitars. Their electric guitars have been less lauded over the decades and Harrison was only borrowing the Mastersound MS-500 while his Gretsch Country Gentleman was being repaired.
The Cavern Club is the Liverpool venue that has long been associated with the early days of the band, so a near priceless artefact from this rarified period in rock history is going to come at a high price.
