Hard Rock Cafe to Auction Beatles Memorabilia

Ever wanted to own a piece of musical history?

Then head down to Hard Rock Café New York where on May 18th, 2013, they will be selling loads of rock 'n' roll memorabilia.

Maybe you want to get your hads on a signed copy of "In His Own Write", John Lennon's literary debut.

Other interesting stuff by the Fab Four includes copies of the famour "Butcher" cover of "Yesterday and Today", signed copies of the Please Please Me debut album and much more

But the real eye-cather is the rare offering of a VOX guitar played by both John Lennon and George Harrison.

The striking custom guitar built by Mike Bennett and Dickey Denney was gifted to “Magic Alex” Mardas by John Lennon in 1967.

Harrison played the guitar while practicing “I am the Walrus” during The Magical Mystery Tour and by Lennon while recording a video session for “Hello, Goodbye.”

The spectacular piece of Beatles history is estimated to bring $200,000-300,000 and offers collectors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of the rarest pieces of Beatles memorabilia ever to be offered.

Interestingly, if you are in Ireland then you can see the guitar already today.

The John Lennon/George Harrison played Beatles guitar will be on display at The Museum of Style Icons in Newbridge Silverware in County Kildare, Ireland from April 16th – May 8th 2013
