Custom Built Vox Played by The Beatles to go Under the
A custom Vox guitar played by Beatles John
Lennon and George Harrison is currently
on display in London prior to going under the hammer at a US
auction next month.
The custom built semi-acoustic Vox, which was crafted by Mike
Bennet and Dick Denney in 1966, features ornate woodwork, extensive
built-in electrics and scrolling cutaways and is expected to fetch
between $200,000 and $300,000 according to Beverly Hills-based
A centerpiece of Julien's 'Music Icons' auction, taking place on
May 18, the guitar was played by Lennon and Harrison during the Fab
Four's Magical Mystery Tour period in 1967. According to Beatles
archives Harrison used the guitar to rehearse his part on 'I Am
the Walrus,' and Lennon supposedly played the guitar while
recording a video session for 'Hello, Goodbye.'
Martin Nolan, executive director of Julien's Auctions,
called the guitar "one of the most historical pieces of music
memorabilia ever offered by the auction house."
The uniquely rare Vox guitar is on public display at The
Stafford London Hotel, St James Place, SW1 until May
