Gary Moore's Guitars and Amps Set to Be Auctioned This Month

  • An immense collection of guitars and amps owned by the late Gary Moore is coming to auction on June 29.
  • More than 35 guitars and amplifiers from the collection of the late Irish guitarist will be offered at Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia sale, which will take place at the auctioneer’s location in Knightsbridge, London.
  • The Belfast-born star is famed for gracing the lineup of the great British rock band Thin Lizzy, as well as Colosseum II, and the original Skid Row group. Moore’s talents extended across a breadth of musical styles, from mainstream hard rock, for which he was most famous, to blues and jazz-rock, genres in which he produced several albums.
  • “Before his death, Gary Moore had amassed an incredible collection of instruments,” says Stephen Maycock, Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia consultant specialist. “Some 35 guitars, as well as a selection of vintage amplifiers, will be offered at auction for the first time in Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia sale. As you’d expect from such a great musician, there’s a lot of interesting guitars in the collection, including several Gibson Les Paul models.”
