Bow to the Boss... Bruce Springsteen $3,000 Fender guitar is for sale
Personally autographed by the Born in the USA singer, this rock 'n' roll axe is sure to attract bids...
Paul Fraser Collectibles, Friday 23 September 2011
Here's another highlight from the more than 400 lots of original artwork, porcelain, fine estate jewellery, cut glass, silver, bronze and furniture which will be sold tomorrow (Saturday, September 24) by Elite Decorative Arts.
Rare and unusual collectibles will feature a Bruce Springsteen-signed Fender Squire Bullet Strat guitar with red lacquer body.
The guitar has been signed by "The Boss" in black on the white pick guard (it's estimated at $2,000-$3,000).
This isn't the first time that a Stars 'n' Stripes decorated guitar signed by The Boss has appeared for sale.
Dan Morphy's auction in Pennsylvania, US, in June of this year offered an American Flag Electric Guitar autographed by Springsteen.
It sold for $3,450 - above its pre-sale estimate of $1,500-2,500 - with authenticating certificates and appraisals.
Elsewhere, a Gotta Have Rock 'n' Roll auction offered a classic 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible once owned by rocker Bruce Springsteen.
The car rolled to $468,000, far above its starting price of $390,000.
The V8 yellow convertible, which features orange flames, was the artist's first vehicle, bought in 1975 for just $2,000. Springsteen is believed to have composed Backstreets, Thunder Road and Born to Run in the car.
Given the boss's past performances on the auction block, this Fender Squire Bullet Strat guitar will certainly be one to watch when it auctions at Elite Decorative Arts tomorrow.
