Neil Young To Auction Off Guitars, Gear, Clothes, Model Trains & More

There's a link in the last paragraph to the auction flipbook. Quite a collection.

I had to laugh at seeing the Budweiser guitar in there.

The recording and hifi gear are WAY undervalued. Those are eBay prices.

Interesting stuff in there. Looks like he was a magpie for Marshall amps, which I didn't see coming! Some interesting stuff in there, and a lot of geegaws and general tat.

The '70s P bass was interesting, as it had a Dimarzio Model P fitted and the pickup halves swapped around. Instead of fitting a new pickguard the tech/luthier/Neil cut the route in the pickguard to make it work, and then inlaid plastic to make it all fit together.

Alright it was mildly interesting.

I'm just a bit worried. Why is Neil selling all this stuff off?

Maybe he just realized he can't take it with him.

Didn't he just get divorced and marry some actress...?

Maybe he doesn't have room at her condo.

He did get divorced and hooked up with Daryl Hannah. I don't think they're married.
