A few weeks back, we fawned over Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Fender Broadcaster guitar that was headed to action – because the instrument had once been in the hands of a single legendary artist. So imagine our elation when we found out that this 1965 Fender Telecaster, which was played by several of rock’s greatest musicians, was up for sale courtesy of Julien’s Auctions.

Originally owned and used by The Band’s Robbie Robertson (which he used to write and record “The Weight”), this instrument was also used by Bob Dylan – both to record his famous Blonde on Blonde album and onstage during his first band-backed tour. Even more impressively, this Tele was, at times, played by the likes of Eric Clapton, George Harrison of the Beatles, and Levon Helm (Robbie Robertson’s bandmate). But the pedigree of such a guitar comes at a cost, as it is expected to sell for between $400,000-$600,000 – although, it’s worth noting that some of that money will go toward the American Indian College Fund charity.

Purchase: $400,000+
