McCartney guitar fetches £330,000
The Rex acoustic guitar helped Sir Paul persuade John Lennon to let him join his band, The Quarrymen, in 1957.
He impressed Lennon by playing songs and chords on it at a Liverpool fete.
This was the listing that lead me to the Beatle, similar to one of my old finds, though mine was $7.99, and will need a lot of rehab;
Rex Lancer Archtop Acoustic Guitar
I found some early Rolling Stones instruments and they are even pictured using them. What would they bring at auction?
Well, that and the fact that McCartney could actually play the guitar, unlike Lennon. Lennon knew only banjo chords and tuned and played his guitar as if it were a banjo.
McCartney taught Lennon how to tune and a guitar and how to play guitar chords.
