Richard Gere’s Vintage Guitar Collection To Be Sold At Auction

Richard Gere’s guitar collection is going up for sale. The legendary star of “Pretty Woman”, “Chicago” and “An Officer and A Gentleman”, has 110 vintage guitars that will be sold on October 11through a popular auction house.

Gere has accumulated the guitars for a period of not less than 20 years. The collection allegedly includes pieces once owned by renowned talents such the Jamaican reggae star Peter Tosh, blues instrumentalist Albert King and American luthier James D’Aquisto. It also includes instruments from major brand names such as C.F. Martin, Fender, Epiphone, Gibson and Gretsch. For this reason, the collection is considered by the auction house as a prestigious opportunity for fans and collectors alike.

The auction will be held at Christie’s, a reputable auction house based in Washington, DC, and is expected to reel in about $1 million in earnings. Some special pieces, such as the 1958 solid-body Gibson Flying V electric guitar previously owned by Albert King, are expected to attract bids as high as $90,000.

“They have been my true friends through the best and worst of times. I never planned to put together a collection. I just bought ones that I liked, the ones that sounded good and played well,” Richard was quoted saying in a statement.
