Buy George Harrison’s Rickenbacker

If you have a projected half million bucks and a lust for historic gear, the upcoming Julien’s Music Icons auction at the Manhattan Hard Rock Cafe is the sale for you. Up for grabs among other Beatles memorabilia is George Harrison’s iconic Rickenbacker 425, a guitar purchased when the band was ascendant and Harrison was visiting his sister in the U.S. This is where members of a band called The Four Vests come into the picture. From Guitar Aficionado:

When he mentioned that he wanted to buy a Rickenbacker, they took him to Fenton’s Music Store in Mount Vernon, Illinois, where he purchased the 425, serial number BH 439. Harrison paid about $400 cash for the instrument.
