Local Guitar Sells For Record Breaking Price


Imagine selling one thing you own and becoming a millionaire. That’s exactly what happened for one Lewes man after he sold an antique electric guitar. Nick Lee, owner of Nicholas Lee Guitars, sold a 1935 Rickenbacker electric guitar for $7.5 million this week. The guitar was worth so much because there are only a handful of them left in the world, and they served as the baseline model for almost every electric guitar ever made. The sale made the guitar the most expensive one ever sold, shattering the $2.7 million guitar sold in an auction that was covered with autographs from legendary rockers.
