Peter Hook: The New Order Collection

 
  Lot 13
 

OVERWATER BASS GUITAR

OVERWATER BASS GUITAR. (previously owned and used by John Entwistle). Bought by Peter from Sotheby's in 2003 (includes Sotheby's tag and catalogue).

One hell of a Bass player! When he died (WHAT A WAY TO GO!) and I heard of the sale I had to have a guitar. Asking the wife what my budget was, "No more than the estimate!" She said. The two I wanted were his ’Frankenstein’ guitars which were down at £7K each, I had them at 7K, then 14, then 21, then 28, I thought "she is going to kill me!". They went for over 70K each to the Hard Rock, Japan. I bought this one and another which will go in my coffin with me, it’s going to be a big coffin. This didn’t work for me sadly, the other one I use every day.

Sold for £4,000
