Elvis Presley's piano up for auction

Van Halen have been credited with coming up with the greatest guitar album of all time.
Great deals on musical instruments

A white grand piano once owned by Elvis Presley is going up for auction.

The instrument was purchased by Presley back in 1957 and was a fixture in his Graceland home.

It is estimated that the piano will fetch more than $1 million (£645,000), reports BBC News.

Doug Norwine, of Heritage Auctions, said the piano was "an emotionally-charged prized possession of the King himself".

The instrument is one of several items of Presley memorabilia being sold off in the August 14th auction, along with a contract signed with RCA and a pair of his gold-framed sunglasses.

It is expected that the record contract – which was signed by Presley, his father and his manager Colonel Tom Parker – may raise more than $150,000.

Last month, a Fender Stratocaster guitar owned by Jimi Hendrix was sold at auction for $180,000, while a crystal-studded glove once worn by Michael Jackson went for $190,000 at the same event.
