    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 have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

    I'll be back

    Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.

    I would do business with them again

    I found the Chicago Gold Gallery to be a very honest and reputable shop. I would highly recommend this store to anyone buying and selling their possessions.
