Big bucks for Dylan guitar:
A guitar played by Bob Dylan at concerts in the 1970s has sold at auction for nearly $400,000.
Heritage Auctions in Dallas says a buyer requesting anonymity paid $396,500 Saturday for the singer-songwriter’s 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic guitar. The company says Dylan played it through his set at George Harrison’s Concert for Bangladesh in New York City in 1971 and on a tour from October 1975 to May 1976.
The guitar was sold by Larry Cragg, Dylan’s guitar repairman. The original 1977 purchase receipt, included in the offering, shows Cragg bought the guitar from Dylan for $500.
