Hundreds of guitars – including a Bob Dylan-owned Fender Stratocaster and Rory Gallagher-owned Gibson L6-S – are to go under the hammer at the UK's Gardiner Houlgate auction house next week.

The Dylan-owned Strat dates back to 1962, and boasts a Gold Sparkle re-finish that was carried out in 1991 by then Fender Master Builder J. Black at Dylan's request. It is believed that the singer-songwriter used the guitar during his Never Ending Tour.
