John Lennon's guitar sells for $2.4 million at auction
The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential act of the rock era. Their hairstyle, unusually long for the era and mocked by many adults, became an emblem of rebellion to the burgeoning youth culture.
Jack White - Very rare 1957 Gretsch White Penguin. One of the rarest guitars in the world, it can be seen in the video for the song “Icky Thump.” For the Raconteurs, he designed a Gretsch clone, which he has dubbed the “Triple Jet”. It is a double-cutaway Duo Jet with a pickup booster, and features a solid copper top. It also has a Gretsch logo that was only used on a few guitars in 1912. It is not a factory Grestch, as it was built by luthier Randy Parsons of Seattle.
