Dylan’s Guitar Sold for $400,000

A guitar played by Bob Dylan in concerts in the 1970s was sold at auction for nearly $400,000,  November 11. Heritage Auctions in Dallas says a buyer requesting anonymity paid $396,500 for the American singer-songwriter’s 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic guitar.  The Texas-based auction house says Dylan played the guitar at a concert in New York City in 1971 and during his tour from October 1975 to May 1976. The guitar was sold by Larry Cragg, who was Dylan’s guitar repairman. The original 1977 purchase receipt, which was included in the offering, shows Cragg bought the guitar from Dylan for $500, Billboard (American entertainment magazine) wrote on its website. In 2013, Dylan’s Fender Stratocaster (a model of electric guitar) from the 1965 Newport Folk Festival was sold at an auction for a then-record $965,000. Dylan, 76, has been an influential figure in popular music for more than five decades. As a musician, Dylan has sold more than 100 million records, making him one of the best selling artists of all time. He has also received numerous awards including eleven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award.
