The Gibson SG guitar was used by Harrison from 1966 to 1969, including during the recording of Revolver, and by Lennon during White Album sessions.

Since then the guitar has been on loan to the Hall of Fame, in Ohio.
It sold to an anonymous bidder on Friday. Among 70 items of Beatles memorabilia on auction, there were also never-before-heard original tapes of an interview of Lennon by a reporter for the Washington Star newspaper from 1975. These sold for £27,900 ($54,100).
