“It was one of his favorite instruments,” said Larry Cragg, the seller and Dylan’s longtime guitar technician who nicknamed the guitar “Bob” in honor of its famous owner. “It’s been a pleasure owning this incredible piece of music history, but the time is right for it to find a new owner who will appreciate it as much as Bob and I did.”

The winning bidder will receive not only the guitar in its original case, but also the original 1977 purchase receipt stating, “Bought from Bob Dylan, Martin D-28 #196405 and case for $500.00.”

Since purchasing the guitar directly from Dylan, Cragg stored the guitar, with its strings loosened, in a humidity-controlled environment. To this day, Dylan was the last musician to have played the guitar since 1977.

Dylan owned and played the guitar for at least a decade spanning the late 1960s through the late 1970s. It was his preferred instrument during George Harrison’s historic Concert for Bangladesh, as he performed a mini-set, which included A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna FallIt Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to CryBlowin’ in the WindMr. Tambourine Man, and Just Like a Woman. He performed alongside Harrison, Eric Clapton, Leon Russell, Ringo Starr and other notable musicians.
