Jerry Garcia 1977 Guitar Makes Big Splash At Auction

As we reported, Jerry Garcia’s Travis Bean TB500 guitar went up for auction this past weekend via Julien’s Auctions. Garcia used the guitar, which was estimated for bring in $150,000, extensively throughout the band’s epic year of 1977. The axe scored a huge sum for its owner as the TB500 sold for an unbelievable $238,700.

Shockingly, Garcia’s guitar was sold for even more than a custom Hofner bass made for Paul McCartney in 1964 brought in ($201K). No word on who bought Jerry’s axe, but we sure hope they display it publicly.
