Bob Dylan’s Historic 1963 Martin Guitar Played at Concert for Bangladesh at Heritage Auctions

Heritage Entertainment October 27, 2017 Vintage Guitars and Musical Instruments Auction

 Bob Dylan’s Owned and Stage-Played 1963 Martin D-28 Acoustic Guitar – played for more than a decade and through his entire set at George Harrison’s 1971 Concert for Bangladesh – may sell for $300,000 when offered by Heritage Auctions Nov. 11 in Dallas. This is only the second known Dylan guitar to go to auction.

“It was one of his favorite instruments,” said owner Larry Cragg, who served as Dylan’s guitar repairman and 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.”

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.

In 1977, Dylan decided he wanted to play Gibson guitars instead of Martins so he offered two 000-18s and the D-28 for sale. Cragg, working as a private guitar technician, was offered the three guitars at Dylan’s home in Malibu. Cragg bought the D-28 on the spot for himself. He has kept the guitar in a humidity-controlled environment, with loosened strings for the 40 years it has been in his possession. It has not been played since Dylan last wielded it in 1977.

“Larry even kept the original receipt for the guitar, which reads, ‘Bought from Bob Dylan Martin D-28 #196405 and case for $500.00,’” said Mike Gutierrez, Consignment Director of Heritage Auctions. “The entire lot comes with the provenance any advanced collector looks for when buying an internationally recognized historical artifact. This is a veritable treasure for the Dylan faithful, and a piece of music history.”

Bob Dylan-Owned and Stage-Played 1963 Martin D-28 Acoustic Guitar, Serial #196405 (est. $600,000+) will be auctioned during Heritage Auctions’ Nov. 11 Entertainment & Music Memorabilia Auction in Dallas.
