Bob Dylan's iconic '64 Fender Stratocaster used by Bob Dylan at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival has gone has sold at auction.

The historic guitar went under the hammer at Christie's in Manhattan last Friday and sold for an eye-watering sum.

Auction house Christie's had estimated the guitar would sell for $300,000-$500,000.
