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.

Fender has posted up their picks for "top 10 most instantly recognizable guitar riffs" -- pretty hard to argue with most of these, but what would you add? While not anywhere near the classic status of all the songs on this list, I'd say Blink-182's "Dammit" has one of those riffs.

Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World said in this interview he is working on an artist-designed Fender guitar that should go into production in early 2008.
From the InterviewI was just actually working with Fender on an artist-designed series model that I think will actually get to go to production in January or February. Itís kind of a cross between a Tele and a Les Paul. It has P-90s and a separate volume tone for each pickup.
