The custom painted axe that later belonged to George Harrison, Jackie Lomax and Todd Rundgren is the latest acquired by Jim Irsay, the owner of the Indianapolis Colts who has amassed an unrivaled private collection of iconic classic rock instruments. Guitars in the collection are frequently on display and occasionally loaned to musicians to play in concert.
