Great deals on musical instruments

Former prime minister Tony Blair kept three electric guitars he was given as presents when he left Downing Street.

According to the Sunday Express, the Labour politician had been presented with the instruments during his tenure in office, with Bono and Bryan Adams both giving him one electric guitar each.

Fender also provided the former prime minister with a special guitar.

Stephanie Connell, from auction house Bonhams, said: "The guitars could be worth a great deal if they are vintage, were used in any major recordings or on tours or if they were owned previously by Bono or Bryan Adams."

Mr Blair also kept hold of 14 watches, 12 of which were given to him by Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi.

Prior to embarking on a career in politics, Mr Blair was a member of Ugly Rumours, a band in which he sung and played guitar during the early 1970s.
