1 Ric12string 8 months ago As the Beatles are aging, more of their items seem to be hitting the auction block.Julien's Auctions, in Beverly Hills, has announced that Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach are placing many of the items from their careers on the auction block. Among them are some interesting items.Perhaps the most intriguing is the 1964 Rickenbacker 1996 "Beatle-backer" model which John Lennon is known to have played during the Christmas shows in late 1963 and earlly 1964, as well as on some demo recordings which he did in his home studio. The Fire-Glo-finished guitar was given to him by Rose-Morris after his own Rickenbacker 325 was damaged. Lennon reportedly gifted this guitar to Ringo during the recording of the White Album. Julien's has estimated that guitar as having a value of between $600,000 to $800,000. Also being auctioned is a Gretsch Tennessean (model year is not stated) that belonged to George Harrison. The information from the auction house does not indicate that the guitar was the one used by Harrison after his days of the Country Gentleman. In fact, it seems to suggest that it was another Tennessean which Harrison owned that he gave to Ringo. Also being auctioned is a Gibson Les Paul owned by Marc Bolan and given to Ringo by the glam rocker. Ringo's own black oyster pearl drum kit, used on hundreds of performances and major recordings is being sold. Paul McCartney also used the kit during the recording of his first solo album.For more information about this auction, click here.I think that I can hear Jim Irsay's footsteps as he runs to grab his checkbook.
