Two instruments put up for auction by Paul McCartney and Eddie Vedder have set new records.
Last weekend, several famous guitars sold for big bucks to help the charity “Music Rising” which was started by U2’s The Edge.
McCartney’s Yamaha BB-1200 electric bass guitar sold for $496,100 (surpassing Bill Wyman’s 1969 Fender Mustang bass that sold for $384,000 last year).
Vedder’s Placid-Blue Fender Telecaster that was smashed during a Pearl Jam show at Wrigley Field on August 20, 2018, went for $266,200 — breaking a record for the highest-selling smashed guitar at auction.
