John Lennon’s guitar to be auctioned

John Lennon’s guitar to be auctioned
A guitar of The Beatles star John Lennon, which he used to record the Paperback writer song, is up for auction in London. It is expected to fetch up to $1 million. Online bidding for the guitar begins 14 Nov and concludes with a live auction at Le Meridien Hotel, Piccadilly 23 Nov. Lennon gave his Gretsch 6120 guitar to his cousin, David Birch, in Nov 1967 – a year after the hit single was produced in April 1966 at London's Abbey Road studios as part of the sessions for the band's Revolver album. ‘I was just cheeky enough to ask John for one of his spare guitars. I had my eye on a blue Fender Stratocaster that was lying in the studio but John suggested the Gretsch and gave it to me as we were talking.’
