Play along with John Lennon‘s “Mind Games”
It appears that an amatuer guitarist called John McCaw purchased the guitar for a few hundred dollars in the 1970s. The item was inspected and authenticated by Andy Babiuk, a Beatles expert, after McCaw’s friends had recognized the guitar in a book written by Babiuk. The guitar will be auctioned in a LA auction house and is expected to reach between $600,000 and $800,000.
Before it is sold, fans will be able to see the lost artefact at two exhibitions this summer, first at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin, Texas and then at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. The guitar gets its public display at Julien’s Auctions from 2 November before its auction on 6 and 7 November.
