The Jimi Hendrix 1968 Fender Stratocaster
This Fender Stratocaster was the exact electric guitar that the legendary Jimi Hendrix used during his gig at Woodstock. When it came up for sale, Paul Allen paid $2 million and donated it to the Experience Music Project in Seattle, the city where the musician was born and raised.
The Steinway Piano was sold to George Michael in 2009 for $2.08 million. The huge price came about as the piano had previously been owned by The Beatles’ John Lennon and was actually the instrument used to compose the song “Imagine”.
