George Harrison’s 1958 Gibson Les Paul “ransom” Burst, which was used as a bargaining chip to ensure the recovery of his stolen Lucy electric guitar, has sold at auction for more than $300,000.

With a starting bid of $250,000 and a pre-set Buyer’s Premium, the guitar was purchased after just one bid, meaning the storied six-string was sold through Heritage Auctions for the minimum amount of $312,500.
