Bob Dylan's electric guitar, on which he performed a career-defining set at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965, is going under the hammer in New York for $500,000.
Christie's will auction off the 1964 Fender Stratocaster guitar on December 6 with five newly discovered Dylan song lyrics dating back to 1965-66.
Christie's expects the guitar to fetch $300,000 to $500,000, and the lyrics $3,000 to $30,000.
The three-song electric set at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island saw a 24-year-old Dylan evolve from folk-protest singer into an enigmatic rock legend.
