Bob Dylan guitar up for auction, expected to fetch $300k

A 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic guitar played by Bob Dylan during the 1970s is expected to sell for more than $300,000 at auction.

The guitar goes up for auction next month at Heritage Auctions.

The iconic musician played the guitar through his set at George Harrison’s Concert for Bangladesh in New York City in 1971, as well as during his Rolling Thunder Revue tour in 75 and 76.

The guitar is being sold by Larry Cragg, Dylan’s guitar repairman who bought it from the musician in 1977.

“It has the same bridge pins, everything is just like it was when he had it: same case and everything, just like it was 40 years ago,” said Cragg.

“It’s kind of past being a guitar now. It’s the kind of thing that you’d think that people would put in a glass case or in a museum somewhere.”

The guitar that once belonged to Dylan will be offered up on 11th November in Dallas.
