George Harrison’s first electric guitar for sale at £220,000

George Harrison’s first electric guitar has emerged for sale for £220,000.

The legendary Beatle acquired the Hofner Club 40 model in the summer of 1959 as a 16-year-old after trading it for another guitar.

He kept hold of the instrument for seven years as the band went from playing youth clubs to stadiums.

Harrison once described it as “the most fantastic guitar ever”, but was persuaded by manager Brian Epstein to give it away to promote their 1966 Germany tour.
