A Fender Electric XII 12-string guitar, which was personally owned and played by Bob Dylan, has gone up for sale at online auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll.

The model in question was designed in 1965 and given to the singer-songwriter to play during recordings at New York's Colombia Studio A that year, including Highway 61 Revisited and early sessions for Blonde on Blonde, before the album's production moved to Nashville in February 1966.
