A custom build VOX guitar played by both John Lennon and George Harrison brought a top bid of $408,000 during an auction Saturday (5/18) conducted by Julien's Auctions at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York. An anonymous high bidder now owns one of the more unique musical instruments in Rock history. The top bid beat projections by more than 100k. The semi-hollow body guitar was played by Lennon in a video shoot for the song Hello, Goodbye and was used by George Harrison when practicing his guitar parts for I Am The Walrus, according to Julien's. The rare instrument was apparently gifted to Yanni Mardis, and engineer for the Apple record label.
