Bob Dylan's Stratocaster Sells for Almost $1M

Posted by: Chris Collum (12/07/13)
The Fender Stratocaster that Bob Dylan played at his famous 1965 Newport Folk Festival performance -- widely hailed as the first time he "went electric," forever changing the face of folk music -- has sold at auction for $965,000, the highest price ever paid for a guitar in an auction.

some guy with too much disposable income is running around his house with excitement right now. When I was down in Austin last year I got to see Stevie Ray Vaughn's main axe in the museum and having watched countless videos of him playing said guitar it was kind of surreal just to see it sitting in the case.

Would have been cool to give him back HIS guitar or in exchange, have him play a few songs privately or maybe auction it off for charity.

I saw in another article that they did try to get in touch with Dylan's people back then to return it, but Dylan's people never responded. Oh well!
