Richard Gere's guitar collection sells for around $1 million
It was a successful sale with only four out of the 106 guitars were snapped up by enthusiastic guitar aficionados.
The Hollywood actor, famed for his roles in Pretty Woman – alongside Julia Roberts – and American Gigolo, had been collecting the guitars for the best part of 40 years.
Kenny Keane, the specialist head of department musical instruments, said: "He wasn't outsourcing the purest examples of guitar making – ones that were unused the way say a coin or a stamp collector would collect.
"He was looking for instruments that did something personally, tonally for him."
The money raised from the auction will go towards humanitarian causes around the world the actor is passionate about.
Gere, 62, who also plays the trumpet, can be seen in political thriller The Double alongside Martin Sheen, which is due out this month.
