I just read this article on Rolling Stone this morning. Christie’s just auctioned off Bob Dylan’s iconic Strat for $965,000, breaking the previous record held by “Blackie,” Eric Clapton’s iconic Strat. But hey! It came with the original leather strap and hardshell case, plus drafts of various songs. According to the article, the buyer is as of yet unknown.
For me, I wasn’t much of a Dylan fan, and as a Les Paul guy, I’m not really all that keen on a Strat, though I sure wouldn’t mind having a vintage instrument to play.
