Bob Dylan’s 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic guitar is going up for auction.
Heritage Auctions will host the auction on November 11 in Dallas, Texas.
Dylan played the guitar for more than a decade and through his entire set at George Harrison’s historic 1971 Concert For Bangladesh. Only the second known Dylan guitar to go to auction, the acoustic is expected sell for $300,000.
The guitar was owned by Larry Cragg, who served as Dylan’s guitar tech. Dylan sold Cragg the guitar in 1977 for $500.00.
“It was one of his favorite instruments,” said Cragg. “It’s been a pleasure owning this incredible piece of music history, but the time is right for it to find a new owner who will appreciate it as much as Bob and I did.”
