John Lennon's lost guitar turns up in San Diego
An acoustic guitar used by John Lennon to compose hit Beatles songs, only to disappear for half a century before turning up in San Diego, is set to be auctioned this fall.
Julien’s Auctions of Beverly Hills, which plans to accept bids Nov. 6-7, says Lennon used the 1962 Gibson J-160E guitar to compose iconic Beatles tunes like “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “Please, Please, Me” and “All My Loving.”
Julien’s estimates bidding between $600,000 and $800,000 for the guitar, which went missing at a concert in December 1963, according to the auction house.
