LOS ANGELES — A guitar from Prince’s prime and some legendary Beatles lyrics sketched out by Paul McCartney are among the items going up for auction at a major music artifacts sale.
Julien’s Auctions announced Monday that the June auction will include a 1984 blue “cloud” guitar custom-made for Prince. He played it in his prime period just after “Purple Rain.”
The auction house said the guitar is projected to fetch between $100,000 and $200,000.
A page of McCartney’s handwritten lyrics for the song “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer" will also be up for auction.
It's expected to draw between $200,000 and $300,000.
