Gerry Rafferty - Gerry Rafferty's Shipyard Town Guitar Up For Auction

A number of guitars once owned by Gerry Rafferty are set to go under the hammer.

The lots include a white Fender Esquire guitar, which the Scottish musician appeared with in the 1988 video for his track Shipyard Town and is believed to have once belonged to Beatles legend George Harrison.

Rafferty's instruments will go up for sale at the Bonhams auction house in London on Wednesday (25Jun14).

Bonhams representative Stephen Maycock says, "Gerry is an extremely well-known and well-loved artist who had fantastic success over a long period.

"One of the exciting aspects of this sale is that they have come directly from Gerry's personal collection. It's the perfect provenance for collectors as the object gives them a personal link back to the musician."

The Baker Street icon passed away in 2011 after suffering liver failure.

Other items going under the hammer include a dinner suit once worn by George Harrison's bandmate John Lennon and a note from Ringo Starr to a girlfriend.
