A Guitar Fit for a Beatle

Posted on May 12th, 2014 by Goldman Buyer

A 1962 Rickenbacker 425 owned by the Beatles’ George Harrison will be auctioned off May 17 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Manhattan, and is estimated to sell for up to $600,000.

Harrison bought the guitar at Fenton’s Music store while visiting his sister in Mount Vernon, Illinois. The guitar was red when he purchased it, but he had it refinished to black to match John Lennon’s Rickenbacker.

Also included in the auction is a signed “Beatles ’65” album with all four members’ autographs, which could bring up to $300,000. Signed albums dating after 1964 are very rare to come by.

Jimi Hendrix’s Sears Silverstone electric guitar, estimated to sell for up to $100,000, will also be up for auction.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

"I recently worked with Chicago Gold Gallery to design an engagement ring. From picking out the stone to designing the setting, it was a wonderful experience to say the least. Thank you so much for your help!"

Can't say enough about this place.

Recently took my family of 4 for a week to Chicago for a family vacation. We were on a limited budget but being lifelong Cub fans I thought it would be a great treat for my kids ages 7 and 10 to go to a game that we hadn't planned for...

Love this place!

Chrissy & Joe are all super friendly and easy to work with. I trust them and they will do whatever they can to help you including giving you advice on what you have or what you should look for. I won't ever go anywhere else and I've recommended it to several friends.

I would do business with them again

I had a diamond ring that I wanted to sell and they gave me top dollar for it. They were so nice and I would do business with them again.

Don't Hesitate to call...

I find that Joe at Chicago Gold Gallery consistently offers and pays more for my coins than coin dealers in Chicagoland. He's very nice and easy to deal with. Don't hesitate to call him and preferably visit him.
