Dylan's electric guitar sells for nearly $1M

Published: 12.07.13, 00:10 / Israel News

On Friday, the Fender Stratocaster that Bob Dylan plugged in at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival sold for nearly $1 million. It is the highest price ever paid for a guitar at auction. A buyer identified only as a private individual agreed to pay $965,000 at Christie's, including the auction house's fees, for the sunburst-finish electric guitar.


Dylan's legendary performance at the festival in marked his rupture with the folk movement's old guard and solidified his shift away from acoustic music, like "Blowin' in the Wind," toward amplified rock, such as "Like a Rolling Stone." (AP)
