The 1965 Fender Stratocaster with which Bob Dylan created such a ruckus at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival is headed for the auction block. Dylan famously outraged folk purists by playing the electric instrument nearly a half century ago. So, where has the Strat been? FromĀ The Guardian:

The guitar has been in the possession of a New Jersey family for nearly 50 years. Dylan left it on a private plane piloted by the owner’s late father, Vic Quinto, who worked for the musician’s manager.

It is estimated that the guitar may bring $500,000.
