An electric guitar famously played by Bob Dylan in 1965 has been sold at auction in New York for $1.1 million.
The Fender Stratocaster had been in the possession of a New Jersey family for 48 years after the singer left it on a plane.
In 1965 when Dylan played this guitar drew boos from the crowd, who had come expecting Dylan’s usual acoustic style.
Experts have verified the guitar as Dylan’s by matching the wood grain on the instrument with a close-up colour photo taken during Dylan in 1965.
The previous record for a guitar sold at auction was a Fender owned by Eric Clapton, nicknamed “Blackie”, which sold at Christie’s for $1.157 million in 2004.
