The Fab Four may have once sung "Can't buy me love", but Friday's auction at the Hard Rock Cafe proved you can buy George Harrison's prized Maton Mastersound guitar - if you have almost half a million dollars handy.

Rolling Stone reports that the instrument sold for 485,000 dollars, the top earner at Julien's Auctions in New York, which specialized in the sale of hundreds of rare items from the world of music.

Apparently, the Maton guitar was lent to Harrison by Barratt's Music Store while his legendary Gretsch Country Gentleman guitar was being repaired.

Harrison played the Maton at nearly a dozen concerts during July and August 1963, including a hometown gig in Liverpool.
