Duane Allman's "Live At Fillmore" Guitar Sells For over $500K

Hall of Fame legend Graham Nash recently thinned the third with the help of Heritage Auctions recently. Nineteen of his vintage/historic axes were auctioned off. Many of the instruments once belonged to Johnny Cash, Stephen Stills, Bo Diddley and others.The 1969 Martin D-45 Nash strummed at Woodstock with C.S.N. went for a whopping $162,500.

The guitar that got the most attention (and money raised) was the 1961/62 Gibson SG that once belonged to Duane Allman. This historic fiddle was played at hundreds of live shows including the live recording of "Statesboro Blues" from the Allman Brothers Band’s classic At Fillmore East. The SG had an opening bid of $125,000, but ultimately the hammer dropped down at $591,000, making it one of the 20 most valuable guitars ever sold.

You can still see this piece of Hall of Fame history currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as a part of the "Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock and Roll" exhibit. For more on the story and to see more pics, click HERE
