The guitar had been expected to fetch at least £100,000 at the sale yesterday at Cooper Owen’s Music Legends sale, taking place five years after the Beatle’s death.

Other items for sale yesterday included a very rare fully signed Sgt. Pepper Gatefold sleeve and items of Lennon’s clothing.

See the new issue of Uncut, on sale next Tuesday. It’s a Beatles special! Featuring Johnny Marr on George, as well as Noel and Liam Gallagher on John,m Brian Wilson on Paul, and Dave Grohl on Ringo.
