Bob Dylan’s guitar, which he used on his first electric tour in 1966, recently sold at auction for an eye-watering US$490,000!

The 1965 Fender Telecaster had also been used by other musicians like Eric Clapton and George Harrison.

That’s certainly not the first time celebrity memorabilia have sold for a huge chunk of change.

The Gladiator star held an auction dubbed “The Art of Divorce” in Sydney last April to sell 227 of his personal valuables and movie memorabilia.

Among the items that sold were a leather jockstrap he wore in Cinderella Man, an antique violin he learned how to play for the movie Master and Commander, and his director’s chair from American Gangster.

The auction netted the actor an impressive US$2.8 million.

Not bad for an afternoon’s work.
