The 1957 Les Paul, which has been on display at The Big House, The Allman Brothers Band museum in Macon, was purchased by an out-of-town collector who wishes to remain anonymous, according to The Telegraph.
“It was the first time that a refinished guitar sold for that much money,” Richard Brent, director of The Big House, told the Macon newspaper. “I don’t think anybody expected that. ... The history of it is what sold it.”
