Pretty incredible.  And, he's donating all of it to a climate change action organization.

Bold move, very classy. Cool to see him do it while he is still alive versus sitting in his house(s) for years and selling off after he is dead. Bravo!

Can you imagine all the sessions some of those guitars had seen?

 

I hope he kept a few for himself, I wonder if this means he might be finished performing?

The instrument he used on The Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall, carried an estimate of $100,000 - $150,000, but it broke a new world record for a guitar at auction, selling for an incredible $3,975,000.

No he's not done. As long as he can play he will.

Worth every penny IMHO!

He's my favorite guitarist and its not even close. What they should do is re action them and give the money to other charities. Then rinse and repeat. Anyone buying a 4mill guitar can afford it. If they did this (all these big actions) can you imagine all the money that would raise.

Of course not!

Sometimes I see a line and I like to see how far I can leap past.  Bob Beamon’s got nuttin on me.

I've never met Bob Beamon.  Please ignore the photograph of me talking with Bob Beamon.

You mean the picture of you almost beating him at the long jump at the Olympics in 68?
