Bob Dylan’s Newport Folk Festival guitar breaks auction record

The guitar that Bob Dylan played at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965 has become the most expensive guitar ever to go up for auction. The Fender Stratocaster was sold Friday (December 6) for $965,000 (£590,430), topping the sale price for a guitar once owned by Eric Clapton which sold for $959,500 (£587,065) in 2004, reports Spin. The sale happened at Christie's in New York City and the guitar was bought by an absentee buyer. The instrument was sold with its original strap and hard shell case.

Just looking at the booklet which comes with the new Aidan John Moffat (out of Arab Strap) CD.

Queens Of The Stone Age live

In fact, Troy Van Leeuwen is directly in front of me, flicking nonchalantly at his pedals with white strappy shoes.
