Great deals on musical instruments

A collection of rare music instruments will be sold off on September 17th at Roland Auctions.

One of the highlights of the sale is the Camillo Mandelli di Calco violin, which was hand crafted by the renowned Italian luthier Camillo Mandelli in 1929.

It is believed the impeccably kept violin, which was made in Milan, Italy, will exceed its lot price of $12,000 (approximately £7,328).

Elsewhere guitar lovers will be particularly excited about some of the 16 music instruments going under the hammer, which includes some particularly exquisite pieces.

There is, for example, the Gibson Les Paul gold-top electric guitar, itself an amazing musical instrument made all the more desirable by the fact that it is signed by the great man himself.

Other treats include a 1959 Fender bass guitar, a Fender Dreadnaught electric guitar, a Gibson Firebird Blue electric guitar, a G&L Tribute bass guitar, and a diamante classic guitar.

Les Paul was known for his pioneering work in developing the solid body electric guitar.
