The custom-made instrument, built in 1966 by the VOX company, was bought by an unidentified US buyer in New York. Harrison played I Am The Walrus on the guitar in a scene from Magical Mystery Tour in 1967. Lennon used it in a video for Hello, Goodbye later that year. Julien’s Auctions said the guitar had exceeded its estimated value of $200,000-$300,000 (£132,000-£198,000). After playing the guitar, Lennon gave it as a 25th birthday present to Alexis “Magic Alex” Mardas, a member of The Beatles’ inner circle in the 1960s.
