Most of the items are covered in this months Guitarist.

Nothing really that special as they are almost all 1990's-2000's items. But the lots' guide prices are very low, as seems to be the way with auctions these days.

And Francis Rossi's getting in on the fun as well...

No doubt a number of chord-based jokes will (re-)surface...

What a mad world - a 1957 Tele would go for what £20k? An ex status quo one expected to get over £100k? Nuts.

Well, given the rarity of ex-Status Quo guitars with any real usage history behind them, it's bound to go for a reasonable sum. Of course the estimated price may well drop and go down, down, deeper and down.

I understand what you're proposing but I'm sure that Rossi's is just a 57 body with pretty much everything else having been changed at sometime or another. It's also been re-finished in Ronseal. Still, if somebody wants to donate it to me then I ain't complaining.

What you're proposing is rather on the wild side of life.

You realise if you did get it it would self combust when you played the fourth chord on it.......

Apparently Gary Moore's red ones have been sold, however...

... they've still got the blues :blush:

I could be wrong, but I *think* this is the third auction of his gear.
Maybe just what's left ?

Gardiner Houlgate's guitar auctions are superb. But its not just guitars - they have pro audio there as well....We were recently treated to Roland Ollazabal's studio stuff, including his PPG wave 2.2 and his EMAX.

I've bought loads of stuff from there - its 20 mins down the road from me.

I noticed a couple of Gary's keyboards are included, like this Polysix. (As Wonks indicated, the estimates are disingenuously low.)
