John Lennon’s Guitar to Fetch Over Half a Million USD Under Hammer
The item had made its way to San Diego, USA and was purchased by a guitar enthusiast called John McCaw, who bought the guitar for a few hundred dollars in the 70s. McCaw did not realise the significance of the instrument until a friend had pointed out a striking resemblance with a John Lennon's J-160E Gibson pictured in a book written by Beatles expert, Andy Babuik.
After much research, the instrument in McCaw’s possession has been verified by experts that it is the guitar that once belonged to the iconic Beatles frontman. The guitars serial number and imperfections within the details from high definition video tapes helped verify its history.
