For those of you in or near the NYC area on the 27th Feb, Guernseys and Invaluable online auctions are offering an event entitled Guitars at Auction!
I was emailed some information about the auction, and although I’m not in that particular hemisphere myself, I’m not a vindictive man, so I thought I’d share what I have.
There will be 379 lots (including items from several private collections), which will be sold live on February 27th at the East 73rd Street Bohemian National Hall with prior live preview showings on February 25th and 26th from noon to 6 each day at the same location. According to the Guernseys and Invaluable websites, guitars will be offered which previously belonged to Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eddie Van Halen, Les Paul and Nils Lofgren as well as instruments signed by the aforementioned and more.
Invaluable have offered the following infographic as a taster, but you can view and search other listings from the auction at
Personally, my favourite listing for the auction is Lot 483:
A 2001 Buddy Guy Signature Strat, owned and signed by the man himself!
