One of the highlights of the event is a spectacular collection from the Founding Father of Rock, the one and only Little Richard. Some of Little Richard’s most flamboyant and show stopping ensembles, guitars and music scores and other memorabilia will be offered.

Another highly anticipated item is a rare guitar owned and played by Bob Marley. This is the first guitar by the reggae icon ever to come to auction. Marley’s 1975 Ovation 1612-4 Custom Balladeer acoustic electric guitar.

Headlining on the auction marquee are two exceptional guitars owned and played by one of the most influential guitarists of all time, Jimi Hendrix. One of Hendrix’s favored left-handed Fender Stratocasters that he kept and played in New York will electrify the auction stage. The other, owned and played by Hendrix, is a circa late 1960s WM. C. Stahl Style 8 acoustic guitar.

One of the Three Kings of Blues, Albert King’s 1967 Gibson Flying V Guitar was his main guitar for both studio work and live performances circa 1967-1972 and used on his finest recordings, “Born Under a Bad Sign,” “I’ll Play the Blues for You” and on the albums, Blues Masters: The Very Best of Albert King in 1999 and The Very Best of Albert King in 2007, where it appears on the covers.

An exciting auction appearance will be the sale of a Hammond B-3 organ circa mid-1960s played by one of the finest Hammond organists of all time, Gregg Allman. Allman played this instrument extensively during live performances with The Allman Brothers Band and with the Gregg Allman Band from the late 1980s until Allman's final Lake Tahoe show on October 3, 2015.

Eddie Van Halen thrilled audiences with his virtuosic and electrifying guitar playing on his stripe designed electric guitars in his high energy performances while flying through the air. At center stage of this auction will be two of these important guitars custom designed and played by the lead guitarist and co-founder of the American rock band Van Halen.
