One of the most most historically important guitars in rock history, played by Bob Dylan and owned by Toronto’s Robbie Robertson is going to auction. It’s Robertson’s famous 1965 Fender Telecaster that he played with The Hawks back in 1966.
Julien Auctions in Los Angeles says the guitar will headline day two of a blockbuster rock and roll auction event May 19th at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York and online.
The iconic guitar is available for auction for the first time in history and is estimated to sell for between $400,000 and $600,000 dollars.
The legendary axe made history as the guitar played by Dylan on his first tour “going electric” with The Hawks as his backing band. The Hawks subsequently became “The Band” and rewrote rock and roll history.
