George Harrison electric guitar sold

Liquidators for Borders have sold an electric guitar that was donated to the book chain by George Harrison.
Great deals on musical instruments
Liquidators for the Borders book chain have sold a George Harrison electric guitar that was gifted by the former Beatles star.

The Fab Four legend, who passed away in 2001 after a battle with lung cancer, had donated the music instrument to the former book company, which went out of business last year.

Harrison's electric guitar, a Fender Stratocaster, was also signed by the musician. It was a thank you for the support Borders had given Harrison when one of his albums was reissued.

Jim Shaw, a consultant for liquidator Gordon Brothers Group LL, said: "This guitar was a gift to Borders Books from George Harrison and comes with a custom, lighted two-door lockable cabinet.

"The guitar was displayed in the Borders corporate office lobby for many years, but due to the bankruptcy, it is now offered up for auction."

Harrison was recently the subject of a Martin Scorsese documentary.

Entitled George Harrison: Living in the Material World, the film paints a new portrait of the Beatles guitarist dubbed "the quiet one".
