Johnny Winter, The Auction - Day 1

Guernsey's will be conducting a major auction of the complete Johnny Winter Collection. Coming directly from the late, great blues/rock musician's family, the auction will consist of more than thirty guitars (including Johnny's six legendary Gibson Firebirds, his three Lazers, the very first guitar he ever played as well as his very last, several rare metal resonators and other early, beautiful instruments. The more than 600 auction lots will also include his stage-worn clothing and gear, and personal items of every description, from Johnny's Beaumont, Texas high school ring to his clipped beard! We’ll also be selling several exciting notebooks filled with Johnny's handwritten music he composed in the late 60s and 70s. There will also be many rare posters and photographs featuring not only Johnny but also several other legendary musicians that he performed with, including Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. Speaking of Jimi, the event will also include one of his stage-worn shirts, as well as three exciting original works of art that Hendrix created.
