According to Reuters, collectors can also expect to bid for Jerry Garcia's Acoustic 1990 Alvarez-Yairi guitar and a black Gibson Les Paul that Madonna used on tours in 2001 and 2008.

Previously in May, Guernsey's sold a Wolf guitar once owned by Garcia for US$1.9 million.

In addition to the guitars, the auction will also feature saxophones, master recordings of James Brown and Elvis Presley, as well as recorded live performances of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, among other items. (ezr/kes)
