A vintage Martin guitar, once owned and played by music legend Eric Clapton, could fetch $500,000 when it goes to auction next month.
The guitar was a gift from the now 76-year old music icon to Welsh singer Dave Edmunds in 1976. It was first used by Clapton in a concert at the Lyceum Theatre, in London, in June of 1970.
The sale includes a signed letter of provenance.
It goes on the block at a Julien’s auction at New York’s Hard Rock Cafe on November 19th and 20th.
Also up for sale; about a thousand things once owned and used by The Beatles, Elvis, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.
