Earlier this year, Bonhams hosted The Peter Green Collection – a high-profile auction that saw the sale of more than 150 electric guitars and acoustic guitars once owned and played by the late Fleetwood Mac legend.

Certain instruments became the poster-guitars for the mammoth sale, including Green’s 1968 Gretsch White Falcon and 1931 National Duolian Resonator – both of which were played by Joe Bonamassa in a Guitarist-exclusive pre-auction demo.
