The most antique guitar dates back to the early 1800s while the latest version was made in the year 2000. There are several other famous guitars that would make the music lover swoon with admiration at the craftsmanship and expertise expended on these beautiful musical instruments. 

Among these fine holy grail of guitars there was one owned by Eric Clapton. Another one was once used by Mick Jagger. And a third by Stephen Stills. Meanwhile, the auction is termed “The Holy Grail of Guitars”. 

There will be many acoustic samples as well at the event. The man who is responsible for all this named Hank Risan. He has availed the services of Guernsey’s in order to sell off his large collection. 

Some of the cool musical instruments he is giving away at astronomical sums are the choicest ever seen. The date for the auction is set directly after April Fool Day. Yes, April 2nd and 3rd are the days chosen when the event will be held with pizzazz and passion. 

The list of guitar manufacturers that will have their fare displayed include: Gibson, Stromberg, Washburn, D’Angelico and Gretsch. The president of Guernsey’s has expressed his sentiments regarding the antique instruments. According to him they are meant to be employed in life rather than allowed to collect dust in a museum.
