George Harrison Amp Expected To Sell For $100k
One of the former Beatle's amps to go to auctionUltimate Classic Rock reports that the ultra-rare guitar amp was used by Harrison during recording sessions for the Beatles’ albums ‘Revolver’ and ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’.
The original owner of the vintage Vox UL730 amp and cabinet was only recently discovered when an engineer tasked with fixing it noticed the name "George Harrison” scratched into the chassis. Further research confirmed that the amp indeed was once owned by Harrison.
"Very few amps used by the Beatles have come to auction before, and to find one that was used on two such significant albums is truly rare and exciting,” says Stephen Maycock, a consultant to Bonhams.
The auction takes place on 15 December in London. Other items on offer include an original Band Of Joy (the pre-Led Zeppelin Robert Plant band) acetate and various Rolling Stones items.
