A Guitar Fit for a King

Posted on July 23rd, 2015 by Goldman Buyer

Those of us in Chicago are familiar with the Million Dollar Quartet, a musical inspired by a jam session involving Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins back in 1956.

A guitar signed by all four actual members, along with some other Presley memorabilia, will be up for auction next month in no other place than the King’s hometown of Graceland. The guitar is expected to sell for between $20,000 and $30,000.

Other notable Presley items for sale include a jumpsuit he wore in Las Vegas in 1973, known as the “Starburst” jumpsuit, expected to fetch between $100,000 and $150,000; a 1956 signed transfer agreement that moved 15 songs under the umbrella of his publishing house (Gladys Music) expected to sell for between $20,000 and $30,000; and a Walther Model PPK/S 9mm Kurz handgun he owned, engraved with “Elvis” and “TCB,” expected to be sold for between $100,000 and $150,000.

The auction will be at the Graceland Archives Studio August 13th at 8 pm EDT and online via eBay. 174 lots will be featured, comprising the third and largest auction of Elvis Presley artifacts. August 8th – 16th is considered Elvis Week.

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.
