It ain’t cheap, babe. I said, no, no, no...it ain’t cheap babe. But this is the guitar that you’re looking for….
It’s a 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic that Bob Dylan played at many concerts in the ‘70s, including his “Rolling Thunder Revue” tour in the mid-70s.
When Heritage Auctions auctions it next month, they’re expecting $300,000 for the ax. The person making good money on it is Larry Cragg, who was Dylan’s guitar…Continue
Here in my hometown, there’s been a neat little discovery. For a music lover like me, it would be the equivalent of another discovering that nice painting your great grandmother always had hanging in her living room, was actually a Monet.
A music studio in in San Diego, Marc Intravaia’s Sanctuary Art and Music Studio, had a 1962 Gibson J160e guitar. They played it often,…Continue

That might seem pricey, until you think of the amount of money that one investor spent to have the bed sheets the Beatles slept in (he lost his shirt on that, thinking he could cut them up into small pieces and sell…Continue
I was reading a newspaper in San Diego and saw the most beautiful picture in the world. No, it wasn’t a sunrise over the beautiful beaches in La Jolla. It wasn’t one of those double rainbows some freak out over. It was the handwritten lyrics to the great Beatles song She Said, She Said from the Revolver album.
