Elvis Presley - Elvis Presley's Record Player Sold At Auction

Elvis Presley's old record player has sold at auction in Cornwall, England for $6,600 (£4,400).

The Perpetuum Ebner Musical 5v Luxus model was sold to a German bidder for more than double its expected price at the Penzance Auction House.

The odd memorabilia was expected to go under the hammer for $3,000 (£2,000).

According to the Bbc, Presley gave the item to pal Ellen Marschhauser and her husband Jim Jenkins in 1959 as a wedding present. The record player was once used by Presley as a guitar amplifier in his hotel room.

Jenkins says, "We used it at parties. It had a great sound. But the needle broke so I put it away in the loft thinking I would fix it one day."
