George Harrison's 1962 Rickenbacker guitar has sold at auction for $657,000. The former Beatle bought the guitar in 1963 at "Fenton's Music Store" in Mount Vernon while visiting his sister. The Julien's Auctions sale of rock 'n' roll memorabilia was at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York. Harrison had the guitar refinished from a Fireglo red to black to match John Lennon's Rickenbacker. Other items in the sale included Lady Gaga's 1990 Red Rolls-Royce Corniche I automobile. It sold for $125,000.
