George's Sour Note

One of Beatle George Harrison’s most famous guitars failed to sell Thursday when bidding dried up at $161,000 at a London auction. The Leo Fender rosewood guitar, played by Harrison when the Beatles made their last public appearance together 30 years ago and, previously, when they recorded “Let It Be,” is owned by Californian Delaney Bramlett — from the American duo Delaney and Bonnie. “It didn’t sell. We are very disappointed. The bidding stopped at 100,000 (pounds, $161,000 American),” said a spokeswoman for Bonhams, the auctioneers.
