Always Check The Attic

A rare 12-string guitar once played by Beatles legends John Lennon and George Harrison has been rediscovered after spending 50 years in an attic in rural England. The Framus Hootenanny guitar will be auctioned off in late May, with an estimated price of $600,000 to $800,000. The instrument was used by Lennon and Harrison during the making of albums like Help! and Rubber Soul, featuring in songs such as “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” and “Norwegian Wood.” The guitar, which had been stored in poor conditions, has been restored and is now playable, making it a highly sought-after piece of music history. The upcoming auction at Julien’s Auctions in New York is expected to draw significant interest from collectors and fans alike.
