There are instruments without which it is hard to imagine contemporary music. There is no doubt that they include a guitar, especially an electric one. It is its sounds, produced with the fingers of outstanding “rowers”, that cause shivers on the back and often decide that a given song goes down in history. The best guitars from reputable manufacturers have to be paid for in a few increments, and a few unique guitars are reserved only for the rich. We list them in our article. These amounts are impressive!
Fender Stratocaster “Reach Out To Asia”
The characteristic white guitar has been decorated with autographs by outstanding musicians, including Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. Its first owner was Brian Adams himself. The spring was auctioned at a charity auction in 2005. The new buyer paid USD 2.7 million for them – a bagatel.
Gibson Les Paul Standard 1959
The fantastic blues guitar originally belonged to Peter Green. It was later taken over by the famous Gary Moore. The classic oar in 2006 changed its owner. It was a certain Melvyn Franks, who had to pay a bit more than 2 million dollars for his desire. I have to admit that the guy has an expensive hobby.
Fender Stratocaster 1968
Every fan of the music, when seeing this guitar, will faultlessly indicate its first owner. It was, of course, Jimi Hendrix. The legendary guitarist played his unforgettable concert on this row during the Woodstock Festival in 1969.
Currently, Fender is owned by Paul Allen, one of the founders of Microsoft. It is unknown how much exactly he paid for the guitar, but the price probably exceeded 2 million dollars. Today paddle is worth much more – it was a good investment.
Blackie’ Stratocaster Fender
It is one of the most famous and recognizable electric guitars in the history of music. The sombre name “Blackie” was given to her by Eric Clapton himself, who built an oar by himself from several other Fenders.
Clapton played this guitar for several years, but in 2004 he decided to donate it to a charity auction for the addiction treatment center (the musician himself fought for a long time against drug withdrawal). Unique Fender sold for nearly a million dollars and thus joined the group of the most expensive guitars in the world.
Washburn Hawk 22
The unfortunate Bob Marley was a big fan of the brand’s guitars. In 1971, he handed one of his copies over to his collaborator, responsible for the technical service of the concert in Vancouver.
After Marley’s death, the guitar, which is a world phenomenon, was included in the Jamaican national heritage list! Every year you can buy it at a charity auction (and enjoy it all year round). The spring prices range from about 1.2 to more than 2 million dollars.
