Larry Cragg, who served as Dylan's guitar repairman, put up the guitar for auction, the Associated Press reports.

Dylan notably used the guitar while performing at George Harrison's famed Concert for Bangladesh in NY as well as in the mid-Seventies while touring with his Rolling Thunder Revue.

Bob Dylan's main 1970s acoustic guitar sold at auction over the weekend - for substantially more than was anticipated.

Well-known auction house Heritage Auctions released a tool sold for 400 thousand dollars. During that famed concert, Dylan played his 1963 Martin D-28 acoustic guitar, which the legendary musician also used during his famed 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour.

Earlier, Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel prize. In 1977, Dylan made a decision to perform exclusively with Gibson guitars and sold the instrument to Cragg. Cragg then immediately turned around and sold the other two guitars on consignment at Prune Music in Mill Valley, California, but kept this example for his private collection.

Heritage Auctions, who managed the listing, began the auction at $300,000. This was only the second known Dylan guitar to come to auction, and the winning bidder has requested to remain anonymous.
