George Harrison: Guitar Auctioned for $657,000

The Beatles need no introduction and nor does George Harrison. And the musical instruments used by the Beatles are also worth millions of dollars. The most recent example of this is an electric guitar played by George Harrison in 1963 before the launch of "Beatlemania" in the United States.

George Harrison used this black-and-white 1962 Rickenbacker 425 electric guitar during his 1963 appearances on British TV shows along with the Beatles. Harrison played "Ready Stead Go!" and "Thank Your Lucky Stars" with this guitar.

And Harrison also used this guitar in October 1963 for recording "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "This Boy". These numbers were included in the British Invasion of the rock bands.

Julien's Auctions presented this guitar for sale on Saturday. The guitar was estimated to sell for an amount that hovered between $400,000 and $600,000. However, it topped the estimated value and sold for $657,000.

George Harrison died in 2001 at age of 58. "Harrison bought the guitar in 1963 in Mount Vernon, Illinois, while visiting his sister in the United States," the auction house said.
