The guitar, played by American musician Bob Dylan at the 1970s concerts, has been auctioned for nearly $ 400,000, Heritage Dallas Auction House said today.
The buyer, who insisted on staying anonymous, paid $396,500 for the acoustic guitar Martin D-28, said in the statement.
Dylan played on that guitar at the George Harrison’s concert to help Bangladesh, which was held in New York in 1971 and on Rolling Thunder Revue tour from October 1975 to May 1976.
The guitar was sold by Dylan’s guitar repairman Larry Cragg. The original 1977 purchase receipt, which was included in the offering, shows Cragg bought the guitar from Dylan for $500.
A Fender Stratocaster Dylan played at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival when he went electric sold at auction in New York for $965,000.
