IN TUNE

Cheshire Life - - Finer Things -

What is it? Sin­gle owner col­lec­tions sold by the ex­ecu­tors of two Manch­ester de­ceased es­tates hit the high notes at Capes Dunn auc­tion­eers.

What makes it spe­cial? Among a col­lec­tion of mu­si­cal in­stru­ments was this whacky Atrics twin neck gui­tar, one with 12 strings, the other with six, and jazz records, which in­cluded Blue Note re­leases from such artists as Dex­ter Gor­don, Lou Don­ald­son, An­drew Hill and more.

How much did it sell for? Mu­si­cal in­stru­ments sold in lots re­alised a to­tal of £7,650 with the Atrics gui­tar fetch­ing £130; 90 lots of vinyl LPs fetched £15,780 and the star lot of jazz records re­alised a ham­mer price of £480. They sold in the room af­ter fierce com­pe­ti­tion from the in­ter­net.
